Epub 2016 Nov 1.Novel bioceramics have an intriguing role in implants and prostheses as surface protecting agents. These bioceramics have promising features such as biocompatible, bioactive, and corrosion-resistant natures. Among bioceramics, silica glass and its composite unravel its better desirability against corrosion and wear with interfacial bone bonding capability in physiological systems by nucleating calcium phosphates over the surface, thereby enhancing the osteoinductive property.
