Bioglass is also osteoinductive, i.e., it is able to stimulate bone cells towards a path of regeneration and self-repair, thus significantly accelerating tissue healing kinetics*. In vivo studies have shown that bioactive glasses bond with bone more rapidly than other bioceramics, and in vitro studies indicate that their osteogenic properties are due to their dissolution products stimulating osteoprogenitor cells at the genetic level*. Crystallization of the bone-like matrix and maturation of the bone cells are what lead to new bone formation.
Additionally, Bioglass releases alkaline species, which significantly increase the environment’s pH and provide broad antimicrobial effects*. These antimicrobial properties promote healing and prevention of caries.
