Biomaterials are defined as artificial materials that are made up of biobased or synthesized materials. Biomaterials are used for reparation or reconstruction of the musculo-skeletal system and soft tissue regeneration and conjointly in various medical instruments and devices. The potential applications for biomaterials is quickly increasing, with entirely different physical, mechanical and medical properties required for numerous applications. One versatile and widely used methodology for the short preparation and testing of biomaterials is Pulser Laser deposition (PLD). Geistlich biomaterials are derivatives of natural bovine or porcine material that are been developed for new bone or soft tissue formation. They are used to promote new bone formation and soft tissue healing in the human body.Biomineralisation is a process of formation of minerals by living organism which are used for harden and stiffening of existing tissues.

Biodegradable biomaterials are those which undergoes degradation on exposure to microorganism or through other processes. Polymers are the important class of biomaterials. Biodegradable polymers has a great advantage over biostable polymer. Now a days biodegradable polymers shows a great interest in medical applications and in future biodegradable polymers replace the biostable polymers.one of the important advantage of biodegradable polymer is it does not leave any mark of residue at the implantation site. Hydrolytic degradation is the main mechanism involve in polymer degradation. Modification in current polymers and their processing techniques allows improvement in order to produce better performance in biological media.one of the important trend is the synthesis of novel polymers which exhibits improved bioavailability and bioresponsive.

Stem cell plays a distinguished role in tissue engineering applications. There will be a synergistic impact on stem cell based regenerative therapies through stem cell and biomaterial technology. Interaction of stem cell technology and biomaterials would allow the latest biomaterial designation for future clinical therapeutic applications. The method mainly aims for development of adult stem cell-based tissue designed for biomaterial implants and organoids. This method develops the cells to produce and use induced Pluripotent cells (iPS) from differentiated cells.

There is an excellent future prospects for biomaterial and nanotechnology in the field of medicine. Nanomedicine “the application of nanotechnology to health” showed an exponential growth for the last two decades. Now a days nanoparticles are showing a great interest because of their unique optical, magnetic, electrical, and other properties emerge. Recent advancements like nanometer-sized ceramics, polymers, metals and composites are receiving much attention in the field of bone tissue engineering. The bionanomaterials has applications in novel fibres ,sensors ,adhesives etc. These are used for the cancer treatment, regeneration practices and the polymers are important for gene delivery systems.

Biomaterials plays a important role in the field of medicine today.The main function of biomaterial is its healing power for injuries and restoring function. Biomaterials are naturally or synthetically derived. Natural Biomaterial include silk,gelatin etc. while synthetic biomaterial includes polymers,ceramics and composites. Metals are the main criteria for manufacturing of biomaterial and are widely used in the field of orthopaedic, cardiac and in dental implants. Since metals are more prone to corrosion, wear so surface coating and modification of metal are necessary for good medical application.

Bioactive glasses are novel dental materials which are mainly used in dentistry. It consists of calcium and phosphate which are present in proportion similar to bone hydroxyapatite.They are presently used in bone grafts, scaffolds and coating material for dental implants. Bioactive glasses like bioglass(45S5) are used intraorally for bone grafting. The bioactive glasses involves two common process namely sol-gel and melting. It forms a strong, rapid and stable bond with host tissues. Bioactive glass has become an interesting area for researchers and still research on bioactive glass is going on. Bioactive glass with various composition are used for wide range of applications.

The spine is a combination of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles. Failure of any of these parts might need the operating surgeon to control or stop deterioration in stability or in neurological function.Over the past few decades, spine disorders became a significant health concern and therefore a variety of spinal surgical procedures has been rising considerably. A number of biotechnologies and biomaterial techniques are applied in spinal surgery for its effective treatment within the spine, once conservative treatment is ineffective the foremost suggested operation is decompression followed by fusion. Success rates of spine fusion extensively depends on bone grafts peculiar properties. Autograft has been acheived a solid but still research is focussed on development of new biomaterials.

Cardiovascular biomaterial is presently having a great demand and investment in the field of medicine. Biocompactibilty is the main criteria for cardiovascular biomaterials.Surface modification methods are presently used methods for increasing the compactibility of biomaterials. The scope of cardiovascular biomaterials is growing gradually and lots of new investigators and researchers are developing interest towards this field. Two important consideration for cardiovascular biomaterials are physical & mechanical properties and biocompactibility. Metallic and polymeric materials shows a better replacement in cardiac tissues, but they fail in case of biological tissues.Metallic and polymeric materials serve as a better replacement in repair and replacement of cardiac tissues .

Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine provides a number of solutions to clinical problems which a permanent replacement devices cannot provide. The most challenging area for biomaterials based tissue engineering is to provide the regenerative solutions to musculoskeletal problems that emphasise the biomaterials which have been developed as scaffolds for tissue engineering in cartilage. To provide successful regeneration in tissue regeneration, the cell should undergo proper proliferation and differentiation resulting in cell-induced tissue regeneration.
