Different bone injuries may call for different types of bone grafting and unique bone graft materials. The ideal bone-graft substitute is biocompatible, bioresorbable, osteoconductive, osteoinductive; in short structurally similar to bone, easy to use, and cost-effective. The current choice of bone grafts is the autograft since it possesses all the characteristics necessary for new bone growth but has its own limitations. Ceramics are one of the substitutes for bone grafts owing to the resemblance of their chemical structure to inorganic bone matrix component. Ceramics offer no possibility for disease transmission. This review discusses the use of various ceramic compositions and advantages of application of nanotechnology in this field.
