Biomaterials are constituents that are intended to interrelate with the biological system either as a part of medical device or to replace or repair any injured organs or tissues. Biomaterials can be derived either naturally or synthetically. Some of the natural Biomaterials are silk, gelatin, etc. while the Synthetic ones are the various forms of polymers, ceramics and composites. Bioceramics like Alumina, Bioglass, Zirconia are used to reestablish injured portions of musculoskeletal system and used in dental and orthopaedic fields. Biocomposites are designed by using resin and natural fibres. It can be non-wood natural fibres (rice, wheat, coconut, etc.) or wood fibres (magazines, soft and hard woods). Metals are mostly a choice of biomaterials in fields of dental, orthopaedic, cardiac implants. As metals can lead to wear, corrosion, so surface coating and modification of metals are essential for medical applications.
