Titanium and its alloys are satisfying the demand of dental implant industry for a long. Due to the problems of titanium implants, such as corrosion, ion radiation to the human body, cytotoxicity, and possible esthetic limitations, researchers are always looking for novel implant materials. Recently, zirconia implants as a substitute of titanium implants are becoming popular in the implant sector because of its improved biocompatibility, low plaque affinity, and desirable mechanical properties. However, there are very few clinical studies available for its long-term success rate. The purpose of the study is to summarize and analyze the current data accessible for zirconia implants with respect to its different mechanical properties and clinical survival rates. The available information suggests that a zirconia implant might be considered as a good alternative of titanium in the dentistry industry. It also shows good biocompatibility, better mechanical property, and esthetically a better choice of the implant compared to titanium implants.
