Abstract: The need for new materials to substitute injured or damaged parts of the human body has led scientists of different areas to the investigation of bioceramics since the 70's, when other materials in use started to show implantation problems. Bioceramics show some advantages like being the material that best mimics the bone tissue but also, present low mechanical strength due to its ceramic nature. This paper presents a general view about the topic.
