The utilization of nanoscale biomaterials in various fields of modern science has shown great change and benefits in this present era. Due to their unlimited potential, many researchers have focused on further studies, and today, they play a good role in human health improvement programmes. Accordingly, it is true that the use of nanomaterials in tissue engineering is one of the most advanced technologies in medical care. The technology which integrates materials science and engineering with biology in order to improve the induction of tissue regeneration is called tissue engineering. This technology helps in controlling the cellular combined with synthetically engineered materials and is used for various treatments. One of its main functions is the treatment of structurally degenerated organs in the human body. Tissue engineering techniques can be upgraded with distinct properties of nanomaterials like better adaptability, good response, delivery potential, and better controllability. Moreover, unlike other materials, they are highly efficient, reliable, and easily decompose. Depending on the type of application, different kinds of nanomaterials are used, such as polymers, metals, ceramics, and their various compositions. Consequently, it can be assumed that the approaches of incorporating nanomaterials in tissue engineering will enhance the disciplines of tissue regeneration.
