A dental implant. The dental implant is to be installed in a predrilled bore formed in jawbone tissue for retaining a dental prosthesis. The dental implant includes a substantially cylindrical hollow base member having a wall defining a space in the hollow base member, and through-thickness holes in communication with the space and an outer surface of the wall. Hardened calcium phosphate cement is filled in the through-thickness holes and in at least a portion of the space. A receiving member is integrally formed at one end of the hollow base member for receiving a dental prosthesis.
