Biomaterials that are going to be developed in the future need to enhance not only the tissue regeneration but also minimize immune responses and inhibit any kind of infection. Promises of developing materials that have the ability to promote regeneration of the tissue for the whole body have not yet become a solid reality. Due to emergence of nanotechnology, tissue engineering has been able to experience a great deal of progress in recent years. By the use of nanotextured surface features, tissue regeneration on a grand scale can be achieved. Studies show that nanotechnology speeds numerous therapies for regeneration. Investigations for their bio as well as cytocompatibility properties of nanostructured polymers and metals have been made. Biomaterial development strategies can be broadly classified into two sectors—primarily being through altered chemistry and the second method involves altering the physical implant properties like generating nanometre surface features and in return varying the roughness of surface. Consequently, selective tailoring of biomaterials is done by varying chemical as well as physical factors to optimize favourable cellular interactions. Our primary focus is to understand the essence of nanotechnology in tissue engineering applications.
