The presentation will cover the use of high performance polymers, showing specifically their use when restoring large implant cases. The possible benefits of using high performance polymers will be highlighted. An insight will be given into the processing of the material from the technical aspect along with an overview of the required clinical steps. A comparison will be presented between CAD/CAM metal frameworks, laboratory cast options and high performance polymers. The cases presented will be constructed using BioHPP from Bredent. The use of the material from immediate loading of implants in a day to the provision of the definitive restoration will be shown.
