An improved understanding of the interactions at the anoscale level between the bioceramics in medical implants and the hard or soft tissues in the human body could contribute significantly to the design of new-generation prostheses and postoperative patient management strategies. Overall the benefits of advanced ceramic materials in biomedical applications have been universally accepted, specifically in terms of their strength, biocompatibility, hydrophilicity and wear resistance in articulating joints. The continuous development of new-generation impalnts untilising nanocoatings with novel nanosensors and devices is leaf=ding to better compatibility with human tissue and improved well-being and longevity for patients. This article gives a short oevrview odf bioceramics and reexamines key issues of concern for processing and applying nanosensors as biomaterials.
