Bioceramics are ceramic materials that have been produced specially for use as dental and medical implants. They are usually used in the body to replace hard tissue like teeth and bone. Zirconia, Aluminia and hydroxyapatite (a form of calcium phosphate) are common bioceramics. Bioactive ceramics associate with the body so that bonding of tissue and incorporation into the body occurs eventually after a period of time. bioceramics based on Calcium phosphate are bioactive.


Apart from triggering an initial 'fibrous tissue' reaction, which coats the ceramic, bioinert ceramics do not interfere with the body environment. Ceramics made from alumina and zirconia are known as bioinert.
