Abstract

During the last five decades, ceramic materials have improved the quality of human life. Bioceramics for repair and reconstruction of damaged or degenerated tissues of the skeletal system emerged. With the progress of human knowledge on biology and skills to develop new biomaterials, scientists started to imitate nature to the maximum extent possible. Materials that are not only biocompatible and biodegradable, but also nanostructured are now increasingly being developed.
