Brief description Development of a hydroxyapatite-containing ceramic composite core dental implant system with effective variable elastic properties. The proposed dental implant system with a bio-active 'effective ligament' and thus variable elastic properties is closer to the natural tooth structure than the current high modulus metal and ceramic implants. The new implant system provides clinical longevity by promoting hard tissue growth and by reducing the stress concentration.
