The current study was aimed to fabricate customized root form dental implant using\ud additive manufacturing technique for the replacement of missing teeth. The root form dental\ud implant was designed using GeomagicTM and MagicsTM, the designed implant was directly manufactured\ud by layering technique using ARCAM A2TM electron beam melting system by employing medical\ud grade Ti–6Al–4V alloy powder. Furthermore, the fabricated implant was characterized in terms\ud of certain clinically important parameters such as surface microstructure, surface topography,\ud chemical purity and internal porosity. Results confirmed that, fabrication of customized dental implants using additive rapid manufacturing technology offers an attractive method to produce\ud extremely pure form of customized titanium dental implants, the rough and porous surface texture\ud obtained is expected to provide better initial implant stabilization and superior osseointegration.
