Bioceramics: For Materials Science and Engineering provides a great working knowledge on the field of biomaterials, including the interaction of biomaterials with their biological surroundings. The book discussees the biomedical applications of materials, the standpoint of biomedical professionals, and a real-world assessment of the academic research in the field. It addresses the types of bioceramics currently available, their structure and fundamental properties, and their most important applications. Users will find this to be the only book to cover all these aspects.
- Acts as the only introductory reference on bioceramics that covers both the theoretical basics and advanced applications
- Includes an overview of the key applications of bioceramics in orthopedics, dentistry and tissue engineering
- Uses case studies to build understanding and enable innovation
1. Overview 2. Structure, Microstructure, and Properties of Bioceramics 3. Osteoinduction, osteoconduction and osseointegration 4. Orthopaedics and Dental Applications 5. Tissue Engineering
