Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is regarded as one of the most potential materials for replacing current implant applications. To obtain good bone-implant interfaces, many modification methods have been developed to enable PEEK and PEEK-based composites from bioinert to bioactive. Among them, physical and chemical methods have aroused significant attention and been widely used to modify PEEK for dental implants. This review summarizes current modification techniques of PEEK for dental applications, which include composite strategies and surface-coating methods. The positive consequences of those modification methods will encourage continuing investigations and stimulate the wide range of applications of PEEK-based implants in prosthodontics.
