Biomaterial technology offers several alternatives according to their biological, chemical, and physical properties. Within this respect, tremendous advances in the biomaterials field have been carried out in the last 50 years. In this chapter, biomaterials, biocompatibility and material deterioration, and the criteria for implant material selection in practice are discussed.
