Dental Caries Detectors Market Growth & Trends

The global dental caries detectors market size is expected to reach USD 512.0 million by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8.9% from 2021 to 2028. Dental caries detection devices assist in evaluating enamel structure for conditions like caries or micro-fractures in the tooth before sealant placement. Caries detection devices assist in the primary detection of dental caries, which might lead to early diagnosis by the dental professional. Factors like the increasing prevalence of caries, increasing awareness about oral health, and rising advancement in dental diagnostic are expected to propel the market growth.

Dental caries is the most prevalent and preventable dental condition, which if identified early, can be treated by non-invasive techniques. According to the WHO, as of 2017, around 2.3 billion people suffer from caries of permanent teeth and more than 530 million children suffer from caries of primary teeth. Changing lifestyle, high sugar consumption, and less awareness about oral hygiene in low- and middle-income countries are the most common causes for the prevalence of caries.

Moreover, technological advancement in caries detection devices that assures high accuracy and sensitivity for diagnosing caries lesions is expected to propel market growth. For instance, Digital Imaging Fiber Optic Trans-illumination technique has an accuracy of 90% and the images can be stored digitally by the professionals, assisting in providing quality treatment to the patient.

In the light of COVID-19, the global market was hampered as the footfall of patient appointments for surgical treatments was temporarily suspended. However, since the governments in many countries have allowed resuming elective surgical procedures, clinics have also started orthodontic procedures again by adhering to strict Covid-19 protocols. Moreover, many dentists believe that there will be a surge in oral care and dental treatments post-Covid-19 crisis and this is expected to propel the market growth.
