Biomaterials used in implantology have evolved over a period of time. In quest for desirable mechanical, physical and biological properties of material, numerous modifications have been made in existing materials. In order to optimize acceptance of implant in the biologic environment constant efforts have been made to introduce new materials or to improve existing material properties. It is imperative for every clinician to be thorough with the recent advancements and newer biomaterials so as to effectively select a material. For years titanium has ruled over other biomaterials and been used successfully as a dental implant material due to the excellent biocompatibility that it offers. This article makes an effort to summarize various dental implant biomaterials which have been used over a period of time now.
