The field of bone tissue engineering, which is rapidly evolving, aims at the regeneration of the bone structure and its functions. In regenerative medicine, the use of 3D porous structures aims to mimic the bone structure and to promote cell attachment and tissue regeneration. Between the materials used for bone tissue engineering, bioactive glasses have shown high bioactivity and potential stimulation of osteogenesis and angiogenesis. This book chapter discusses key characteristics of bioglass materials and presents the main technologies being used to weak scaffolds incorporating bioglass materials.
