Bioactive glasses (BGs) are especially useful materials in soft and bone tissue engineering and even in dentistry. They can be the solution to many medical problems, and they have a huge role in the healing processes of bone fractures. Interestingly, they can also promote skin regeneration and wound healing. Bioactive glasses are able to attach to the bone tissues and form an apatite layer which further initiates the biomineralization process. The formed intermediate apatite layer makes a connection between the hard tissue and the bioactive glass material which results in faster healing without any complications or side effects. This review paper summarizes the most recent advancement in the preparation of diverse types of BGs, such as silicate-, borate- and phosphate-based bioactive glasses. We discuss their physical, chemical, and mechanical properties detailing how they affect their biological performances. In order to get a deeper insight into the state-of-the-art in this area, we also consider their medical applications, such as bone regeneration, wound care, and dental/bone implant coatings.
