"Increasing edentulous population and growing awareness about aesthetics is expected to drive the market"
Dental implants market was valued at over USD 3.56 billion in 2015 and is expected to show attractive growth over the forecast period. Dental implants find wide application as anchors for placement of dental prosthesis such as bridges, dentures, or crowns. Implants are highly preferred treatment modality by dentists for replacements for missing teeth and are considered as long-term solutions providing excellent results.
Prosthetics play a major role in boosting the demand through oral rehabilitation, which involves restoring oral function and facial form of patients. Acceptance level for these implants is increasing among patients and dentists majorly due to limitations of removable prosthesis, such as discomfort, lack of natural appearance, and requirement of maintenance. Prosthetics mounted on dental implants do not encroach soft tissues and enhance aesthetics, which is further expected to drive the growth.
Geriatric population growth plays a pivotal role in the growth of the market. Aging is considered as the greatest risk factor for the development of diseases pertaining to tooth loss. The fact that the global geriatric population base is expected to grow over the next 6 years, is anticipated to boost demand.
According to a survey done by American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, in the US, over 30 million people are missing teeth in one or both jaws and more than 15 million people have crowns or bridges. These are some of the primary factors expected to drive growth. Moreover, increasing number of road accidents every year is also anticipated to support market growth.
Companies like Nobel Biocare Services AG are engaged in production of novel products, which has increased the product portfolio, thereby, providing wider product range for the dentists resulting in enhanced treatment. Although dental implant treatments are expensive, they are accepted widely, owing to the high success rates and long functional lives.
