Bioceramics are ceramic materials primarily used for the repair, reconstruction and replacement of diseased or damaged parts of the musculo-skeletal system. The use of these materials has led to remarkable advances in the quality of life for millions of people. In the future, bioceramics will continue to be improved upon and new materials and applications will be discovered.
