Abstract: A series of glass compositions with varying equimolar amounts of Na 2 O:Al 2 O 3 were designed using Appen factors. Their chemical compositions are shown in table 1.

Bacterial colonization and biofilm formation on the implanted device may lead to acute and chronic infection of the underlying bone and the adjacent soft tissues 4. Bennett, S.
However, other bioactive glass formulations and sol-gel derived BGs are being also considered in the context of AMTs. As the geometrical accuracy and mechanical properties of the fabricated parts strongly vary among the different AMTs, in-depth knowledge of the detailed capabilities of each production process targeted for BGs and other silicate bioceramic materials, as collated in this review, provides information on the basic requirements and challenges for establishing follow-up studies and for possible expansion of the application fields of such additive-manufactured structures.

The treatment of many human disease conditions requires surgical intervention in order to assist, augment, sustain, or replace a diseased organ, and such procedures involve the use of materials foreign to the body. These materials, known as biomaterials, include synthetic polymers and, to a lesser extent, biological….
Prosthesis , artificial substitute for a missing part of the body.
The artificial parts that are most commonly thought of as prostheses are those that replace lost arms and legs, but bone, artery, and heart valve replacements are common see artificial organ , and artificial eyes and teeth are also correctly termed…. Glasses and Glass Ceramics for Medical Applications will appeal to a broad audience of biomaterials scientists, ceramists, and bioengineers, particularly those with an interest in orthopedic and dental applications, as well as scientists and engineers involved in the manufacture of glasses, glazes, enamels, and other glass coatings for the medical materials industry.
The book will also be of interest to undergraduate and graduate students in materials engineering and dentistry, and is suitable for use in courses on medical and dental materials. Glasses and Glass Ceramics for Medical Applications.
