Tissue engineering in recent years has taken a new direction by seizing the
advantage of combining the use of living cells with three-dimensional ceramic
scaffolds to deliver vital cells to the damaged site of the patient. Productive and
feasible strategies have been initiated during the last few decades to combine
bioceramic implants with biogenic materials to the field of cell growth and
differentiation of osteogenic cells. The reconstruction of bone tissue utilizing
nanocomposite bone grafts with composition, biomechanical, biological,
physiochemical and structural features that mimic those of natural bone is an objective
to be pursued.
