Bioceramics – The Changing Role of Ceramics and Nanoceramics in Medical Applications

Abstract:
From as early as a century ago, artificial materials and devices have been developed to a point where they can be used to replace various components of the human body. These materials are capable of being in contact with bodily fluids and tissues for prolonged periods of time, whilst eliciting few, if any, adverse reactions. Key factors in a biomaterial's usage are its biocompatibility and functionality, which are directly related to the bone/implant interface and their nanoscale interactions. During the past two decades, improvement of these interfaces using nanoscale coatings and surface modifications have been of interest worldwide. Currently a number of companies are beginning to introduce these new-generation nanoscale modified implants into the market for orthopaedic and maxillofacial surgery, and for hard- and soft-tissue engineering.
