Prosthodontics is a specialty that involves the replacement and restoration of lost dental structures with artificial substitutes. Many biomaterials have been developed to satisfy the demands laid by the functional, esthetic requirements of the stomato-gnathic system. The considerable advancements in this particular field, have often left the practicing dentist perplexed with regards to the correct choice. This paper provides an overview of the key recent advancements and milestones in biomaterial science in prosthodontics
