Bredigite, Regenerative Medicine, Dental Implants, Composites


Bredigite (Br; Ca7MgSi4O16) is known as one of the most popular calcium-silicate bioceramics. It has an orthorhombic structure containing calcium silicate magnesium compound, and releases Si ions, thereby inducing precursor cell differentiation and cell growth. This in turn suggests that Br may serve as a promising material for existing orthopedic and dental implants. A new insight into the Br composites structure/activity/application tradeoff is the primary objective of the current review, which helps researchers overcome the existing challenges and recognize the bottlenecks that arose from this intersection. In this rapid review, the state-of-the-art advances in Br-containing composites in terms of preparation techniques and modifying methods for enhancing their functional properties, especially in the field of dental implants are surveyed and discussed.
