Apatites can be synthesized in various ways, including solid state sintering, sol-gel methods and hydrothermal reactions; but the former is favored since large quantities are readily fabricated for division and multi-technique characterization.
AB - Synthesised hydroxyapatite (HAp) exhibits excellent biocompatibility, making it an ideal candidate for use as a hard tissue substitute material. Nanoscale-size effects and surface phenomena impart HAp nanoparticles with unique properties compared to the conventional-sized HAp ceramics. Modification of HAp is also important for regulating its physiochemical properties. In this review, methods of HAp synthesis and modification, and various applications of HAp nanoparticles for dental and medical treatment are discussed.
