The bioceramics are using as a substitute for hard tissue engineering since 1960. A compelling way to deal with hard tissue engineering aims to restore function of diseased or damaged bone tissue by combining isolated functional cells and biodegradable scaffolds prepared from engineered bioceramics. Bioceramic materials having better potential to replace the damaged tissues and restore the function of existing tissue. ZrO2, Al2O3 based materials and composites presently used to fabricate implants. Bioceramics including hydroxyapatite, bioglass, and calcium phosphate are using as scaffold, bone filler and coating agent because of their mineral composition similarity with hard tissue. Bioceramic producing a higher tissue response as compared to polymers and metals individually. In this review paper, we highlighted the brief aspects of synthetic bioceramic materials applications in the field of hard tissue engineering. Keywords:
