    (V) Bioactive Glasses and Glass-Ceramics Another approach to the solution of the problems of interfacial attachment is the use of bioactive materials (type3). The concept of bioactive materials is intermediate between resorbable and bioinert. Certain compositions of glasses, ceramics, glass-ceramics, and composites have been shown to bond to bone. These materials are also called bioactive ceramics. Some, even more specialized compositions of bioactive glasses, will bond to soft tissues as well as bone.…

    The menisci are made up of fibrous crescent shaped cartilage. The medial meniscus is attached to the tibia on the inside of the knee and the lateral meniscus is attached to the tibia on the outside of the knee. The menisci sit on top of the tibia which allows the weight bearing force to be spread across a larger area and not have that pressure concentrated on one specific area (Scuderi and Tria, 2010). The menisci’s specific structure of a shallow shaped socket for the femur to sit in is another factor that helps stability. The menisci also help the articular cartilage from wearing away at the friction points because it is able to spread that weight bearing across the structure (Marieb & Hoehn,…
