Abstract

Statement of problem. Dental prosthetic materials can cause artifacts in cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images, adversely affecting diagnostic quality, although the problem may be less with polyetheretherketone (PEEK). Studies evaluating the artifacts caused by frequently used prosthetic materials are lacking.
