Myriads of materials have been used for replacement of missing teeth through implantation. The success of these materials depend on the ability to integrate with the host environment showing biological compatibility, mechanical compatibility, and morphological compatibility to the surrounding vital tissues. Certain materials have shown this promising property and have been used in dental implantology. With recent advances in technology, these materials are better able to improve fixation to bone through various surface modifications and bioengineering
