The aim of our study is the determination of the most suitable material to be used as a dental implant with the help of Entropy based Simple Additive Weighting and Analytical Hierarchy Process which are the two from multi-criteria decision making methods. Three important criteria in fulfilling this purpose have been chosen: young's modulus, yield strength and hardness criteria. Materials alternatives are chrome cobalt, nickel, nickel titanium, titanium, and stainless steel. Of these alternatives, it has been tried to be determined the most suitable one for the sake of both health and transactional characteristics. At the end of our analysis, it was determined that the best material to be used in implant design is chromium cobalt according to the Entropy based Simple Additive Weighting and Analytic Hierarchy Process methods.
