Hydroxyapatite is a mineral form of calcium apatite which is naturally present in bones and teeth.With a chemical formula of Ca??(PO?)?(OH)? and also called HA, pure hydroxyapatite powder is white in color.

However, naturally occurring apatites can also have brown, yellow or green colorations.

Hydroxyapatite is a major component of normal bone and teeth; up to 50% by volume and 70% by weight of human bone is a modified form of hydroxyapatite. Synthesized hydroxyapatite is used as a coating on orthopedic implants to promote fixation and bone ingrowth.

Hydroxyapatite is similar to human hard tissues in morphology and composition.It is commercially available either from a natural source or as a synthetic.

It is extensively used in bone clinical applications because of its stability when compared to other calcium phosphates.

Hydroxyapatite is used in the human body where there are bone voids or defects.The process of using hydroxyapatite in human body is done through powders, blocks or beads of the material placed in the affected areas of bone.

Stainless steel and titanium implants are often covered with hydroxyapatite coatings to trick the body and reduce the implant rejection rate.

Hydroxyapatite has excellent biocompatibility and bioactivity but poor mechanical properties.Because of this, hydroxyapatite is deposited on titanium-based implants to obtain materials that possess both bioactivity and mechanical resistance.

Deposition is via methods such as electrochemical deposition, plasma spraying and sol-gel process.

This deposition encourages the bone to grow and restore the defect. Hydroxyapatite is an alternative to allogenic and xenogenic bone grafts and has faster healing times.
