The global dental splints market demand is anticipated to exhibit a significant rate during the forecast period. The drivers that are expected to fuel the market demand are the growing prevalence of temporomandibular disorders, an increase in global healthcare expenditure, and a rise in awareness about oral health. Dental splints are usually the first stage of treatment for TMJ cases. Millions of individuals globally suffer from TMJ disorders, characterized by joint dysfunction and pain. TMJ Internal Derangement (ID) is the most prevalent disorder in this field, accounting for 41.1% of patients with TMJ disorder.

 A dental splint is a device used to safeguard teeth and their supporting structures from damage caused by clenching or grinding. Dental splints, also known as orthotic devices or occlusal splints, are the most common dental treatment for temporomandibular disorder (TMD).  Dental splinting is usually a temporary treatment to give time for the loose tooth to recover. It is widely accepted that oral health plays an important role in overall health. In recent years, more individuals have realized the importance of oral and dental hygiene. They are becoming aware of various disorders and treatment options, such as Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) function. This has given way to growth in the global dental splints market.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a global economic plunge which has significantly affected the dental splints market. The outbreak restrictions and necessary regimens have impacted the supply chain of dental products which has directly impacted the production, demand and supply chain, and after-sale services of the medical products. However, after the third quarter of 2020, it was observed that most dental professionals are seeing a drastic increase in stress-related oral health conditions since the onset of the covid-19 outbreak. For instance, the prevalence of bruxism and jaw clenching reached 47 percent from its pre-pandemic level of percent.

Based on the mobility degree, the market is divided into flexible, semi-rigid, and rigid. The rigid dental splints are expected to account highest market share due to various advantages such as a variety of products in the market, easy availability in dental clinics, low material cost, and ease of modification. Based on the distribution channel, the market is segmented as offline (through dental professionals) and online. Many customers prefer to buy a product only after physically examining a product, which may reduce the number of product returns for various businesses. Hence, the offline medium is still able to generate huge revenue due to its traditional approach of marketing where the consumer can physically check and assist the product before buying.

North America is expected to project the largest market share in the forecast period. The major players in the region are continuously creating advanced products and expanding their product reach to meet the consumers' demand. The growing prevalence of dental problems such as TMJ, stress-related bruxism, and others along with an increasing adoption rate of dental products has led to a rise in the use of these products over time in North America. North America is likely to be followed by Europe due to the rising technological advancement.

The industry is marked by the presence of various big and small industry players. The dental splints market is highly competitive in nature with North America and Europe dominating the global market. Key global industry players include Aqualizer, Glidewell, Procter & Gamble, Dentek, Brux Night Guards, Sporting Smiles, Smile Brilliant, Chomper Labs., Sentinel Mouth Guards, and Others.
