Bioceramics are type of biomaterials generally used for orthopaedic applications due to their similar structure with bone. Especially regarding to their osteoinductivity and osteoconductivity, they are used as biodegradable scaffolds for bone regeneration along with mesenchymal stem cells. Since chemical properties of bioceramics are important for regeneration of tissue, physical properties are also important for cell proliferation. In this respect, several different manufacturing methods are used for manufacturing nano scale bioceramics. These nano scale bioceramics are used for regeneration of bone and cartilage both alone or with other types of biomaterials. They can also act as carrier for the delivery of drugs in musculoskeletal infections without causing any systemic toxicity.
