Facial onlay augmentation is often performed as an ancillary procedure simultaneously with orthognathic surgery to improve facial appearance, with hydroxyapatite (HAp) and HAp-based composites often used as the materials of choice. The ability to apply HAp in a granular rather than solid shape form may be responsible for its comparatively reduced rate of(More)
Among calcium phosphate biomaterials, calcium phosphate bone cements (CPCs) have attracted increased attention because of their ability of self-setting in vivo and injectability, opening the new opportunities for minimally invasive surgical procedures. However, any surgical procedure carries potential inflammation and bone infection risks, which could be(More)
In the last five decades, there have been vast advances in the field of biomaterials, including ceramics, glasses, glass-ceramics and metal alloys. Dense and porous ceramics have been widely used for various biomedical applications. Current applications of bioceramics include bone grafts, spinal fusion, bone repairs, bone fillers, maxillofacial(More)
Recent progress made in biomaterials and their clinical applications is well known. In the last five decades, great advances have been made in the field of biomaterials, including ceramics, glasses, polymers, composites, glass-ceramics and metal alloys. A variety of bioimplants are currently used in either one of the aforesaid forms. Some of these materials(More)
The review covers historical and last decade's scientific literature on the biological and clinical role of strontium (Sr) and strontium ranelate (Sr RAN). It enrols the description of the main effects of Sr on supportive tissue, its proven and possible morphopathogenetical mechanisms and the interaction with the bone, and especially focuses on the Sr(More)
This study presents different fuels (Glycine and Urea) that can be used to synthesize nanocrystalline forsterite by the sol-gel combustion method. The weight change of precursor during thermal treatment was studied by thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA). Pure forsterite was characterized by heating microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray(More)
Diopside was synthesized from biowaste (Eggshell) by sol-gel combustion method at low calcination temperature and the influence of two different fuels (urea, l-alanine) on the phase formation temperature, physical and biological properties of the resultant diopside was studied. The synthesized materials were characterized by heating microscopy, FTIR, XRD,(More)
