Over the past few decades, biomaterial science has emerged as a new field in which a regeneration or replacement of damaged tissue has become one of the main focuses. Also, great advances in the application of multifunctional nanoparticles for biomedical applications have been made. Implementation of nanomedicine in cellular, preclinical, and clinical studies has led to exciting advances ranging from fundamental to applied research. This chapter will examine the key aspects of application of traditional biomaterials, their physicochemical properties, and behavior in biological system. Moreover, the unique properties of nanomaterials are highlighted in relation to their vast nanostructural characteristics and the field of application. With 164 references.
