Biomedical Applications

SiNAPTIC Surgical uses a diverse selection of premium materials, such as silicon nitride. Silicon nitride stands out as a leading choice for surgical implants due to its remarkable surface chemistry and nanostructure that has antibiofouling and osseointegrative properties to support bone growth.1

Silicon nitride demonstrates outstanding mechanical strengths, such as its robustness and resistance to fracture, which are crucial for its medical uses. The dual osteogenic and antibacterial qualities of silicon nitride distinguish it as a superior bioceramic for implants. Its surface qualities not only prevent the growth of bacteria but also promote the health of eukaryotic cells and the repair of bone tissues. The paper by Du, X, et. al. titled “Silicon Nitride as a Biomedical Material: An Overview” offers a thorough overview of silicon nitride, covering its mechanical, bone-growth-promoting, and germ-fighting features.2
