Four types of responses are possible, as discussed in Chapter 1. The potential of ceramics as biomaterials relies upon their compatibility with the physiological environment.

The reddening and swelling which can be seen in inflammation mark the increase in blood supply (and its consequences) produced by the chemicals released by damaged tissues. In with the blood supply arrive the cells involved in the repair process. These include many cells, known as phagocytes for their ability to ingest, sometimes digest, and remove foreign material. It is the presence of these phagocytes at any time other than immediately post-implantation which can indicate problems with a material or an implant.

Chemical stabilization of a dried gel, step 6 in Fig. 10, is necessary to control the environmental stability of the material. Thermal treatment in the range of 500–900 °C desorbs surface silanols (Si-OH) and eliminates 3-membered silica rings from the gel. These surface chemical features are important in controlling the rate of HCA formation on the gel-glasses and their bioactivity. Stabilization also increases the density, strength and hardness of the gels and converts the network to a glass with network properties similar to melt-derived glasses.
