Toronto Bridge Dental Prosthesis Materials and Optimization

 Massimiliano Avalle, Alessandro Scattina
Description: Concluding my research, I can say that PAEKs, especially PEEK and PEKK polymers, reveal excellent properties that fit really well on the dental implant area. Considering all the results of my study, I believe that such materials can effectively replace the outdated metal alloys. Thanks to the topological optimization also, I was able to analyze the prosthesis by considering its structure. Starting from the existing project and making important changes and improvements, I got an optimized structure, in my opinion, better than the original even if still imperfect and suitable for further refinements.
