Recent developments in nanostructured materials have led to a shift in focus away from the replacement of tissues and towards regeneration. Nanoceramics with biomimetic properties have great potential in bone regeneration and new synthesis strategies have been developed to obtain materials with improved biocompatibility and multifunctional performance. The aim is to fully develop biocompatible implants, which exhibit biological responses at the nanometric scale in the same way as biogenic materials. Current man-made implants are not fully biocompatible and always result in a foreign-body reaction involving inflammatory response and fibrous encapsulation. Great efforts have been made to develop synthetic strategies that tailor implant surfaces at the nanometric scale. The intention is to optimize the interaction at the tissue/implant interface, thus improving the quality of life for patients, with the enhanced results and shorter rehabilitation periods.
