The key aim of this study is to present a comprehensive review of literatures on dental implant materials. The study focuses on titanium implants in a conventional manner and the newly introduced and highly popular zirconia implants. Some of the major areas covered under this study are clinical considerations and material science which includes implant materials as well as the impacts of its physical properties on outcomes of the treatment. Titanium is the gold standard for oral implants fabrication in spite of the sensitivity and despite having unclear clinical relevance. The zirconia implants are highly promising but further clinical studies are required. Also, there is a need of further technical experience and considerations for zirconia implants to lower the mechanical failure incidence.
