Dental Implants and Prostheses Market Dynamics
Growing dental tourism, introduction of advanced products and increasing research on mini dental implants are prominent trends observed in the dental implants and prostheses market. Dental tourism is catching pace as a trend in various countries. As medical treatment costs in developed countries are increasing exponentially, people from these countries are travelling to developing countries that are offering dental treatment at an affordable price. Dental tourism is growing at a fast rate in developing countries, as globalization continues to facilitate the import of advanced technologies and equipment in developing countries.
There has been an increase in research activities on mini dental implants because of the various benefits offered by them; for instance, they cost only one-third of the price of conventional dental implants, require less placement time, and are smaller in size and less invasive in nature. These dental implants require little or sometimes no bone grafting with minimal recovery time compared to the traditional implants.
Increasing prevalence of dental problems, increasing popularity of cosmetic dentistry procedures, rising dental implant surgeries and rising awareness and concern about oral hygiene are the major factors driving the growth of the dental implants and prostheses market. Increasing aging population is a supporting factor for the dental problems. Edentulism, a condition of tooth loss, is very common in geriatric population and is one of the major reasons for people undergoing intraoral scanning and dental implant procedures. Some of the most common factors contributing to edentulism are periodontal disease, unhealthy lifestyle, dental caries, and aging.
Oral health is essential for general health and quality of life. Oral diseases are related to a number of risk factors that are common to many chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases, and diabetes. Concern for oral care is also increasing due to the rising prevalence of tooth decay, periodontal diseases, tooth erosion, and tooth sensitivity problems in people. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 84.7% of children (aged 2–17 years) in the U.S. visited dentists in 2014. In addition, around 64.0% of people aged between 18–64 years and 62.7% of people aged above 65 years visited dentists in 2014.
Geriatric population is at a high risk of dental problems such as periodontitis and cavities due the physical change with age, some people start losing their teeth, as tooth enamel wears away, and therefore require partial or full dentures. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN-DESA) report on the global aging population, the population of people aged 60 years and above is growing at a high rate. The number increased from 382 million in 1980 to 962 million in 2017 and is expected to reach 2.1 billion by the end of 2050. Therefore, growing geriatric population is a key factor driving the growth of the dental implants and prostheses market, globally.
