As a bio ceramic hydroxyapatite and its composites have applied in several biomedical applications. This research used to examine suitability of Hydroxyapatite 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate composite for dentistry. Sri Lankan chlorapatite, ethanol and dil. acid used to synthesize hydroxyapatite by sol gel technique and then it was reinforced with polymer prior to compare and contrast it’s chemical and physical properties with human tooth and commercial dental filling material. Results show there is a close similarity between newly synthesized product and human tooth. It has credent high thermal stability, good crystalline and porous properties than the commercial product. At the end, the study concluded that the new material can be used directly as a substitution for human tooth.
