Abstract:

This chapter reviews the range of ceramics currently used in skeletal repair and tissue regeneration and covers the bioinert, bioactive and resorbable ceramics, glasses and glass ceramics. The scope of the chapter includes the relationships between microstructure (crystalline and non-crystalline) and properties (mechanical properties, surface properties, biocompatibility and bioactivity). The processing (porous tissue engineering scaffolds and surface modification) of bioceramics is also considered. Based on the stringent requirements for clinical application, prospects for the development of advanced ceramic ...
