  • Abstract

    The most advanced methodology to replace a failed natural organ with an artificial, high-functioning prostheses that replicate the same function that of the failed organ into a living organism is called an implant. An ideal implant material should be biocompatible, with properties such as toughness, strength, corrosion, wear, and fracture resistance. The design principles of the implant should be compatible with the physical properties of the material. It is very difficult to combine all these properties in only one material. However, in due course of time and technology dental implant materials and procedure has been improved to meet the future generation. Now the dentists, mechanical engineers, and dental technicians and various others have looked beyond the usual mechanism of dental implants with titanium and tried to create a breakthrough by introducing ceramic implants into the field of dental implantology. The aim of this study is to understand the alternative dental implants material such as ceramic dental implants, compare them with titanium dental implants, and provide information osseointegration and mechanical strength. Ceramic dental implants have the potential to become alternative dental implants to titanium dental implants, but they are not yet in clinical use. It does need in vivo and in vitro successful experiments before going into commercials.
