This present day the advance of technical ceramics is usually orientated in the direction of a greater regulate of the microstructure and ensuing homes of those fabrics. New sorts of powders and microstructures are constructed to allow the use of ceramics in new software components. This target will be reached by way of generating correctly reproducible reactive powders, improvement of tailored sintering methods, and through introducing new kinds of composites.

This chapter provides a brief review of hydroxyapatite (HA), substituted apatites, and related calcium phosphates, and their properties and applications as biomaterials. Particular emphasis has been made on carbonate apatites since bone and tooth mineral consists of carbonate apatite. This chapter covers a brief description of the fundamentals of hydroxyapatite (structure and properties of unsubstituted and substituted apatites) and related calcium phosphates; calcium phosphates occurring in biologic systems (normal and pathologic calcifications); and calcium phosphate based biomaterials for medical and dental applications.

The choice of cell types depends on desired application of a given biomaterial. For example, if the material under investigation is to be used as bone analogue material, then human osteoblast (HOB) cell lines are to be used. Nevertheless, as per ISO guidelines, fibroblast cells, which are normally contained in living connective tissue, are to be used for primary assessment of cell adhesion. , implant zone) at the initial stage. Another parameter for cell culture testing is the time of culture. Usually, the tests are widely reported to be carried out for 24 hours; however, slowly growing cells, like HOB, need to be cultured for three to seven days.
