The dental cement market is expected to witness a steady growth, due to an increase in the patients with teeth discoloration, gaps between teeth, misalignment of teeth, etc. Furthermore, there is a significant increase in the number of cases of dental cavities. The primary cause for the high prevalence of dental cavities and dental diseases across the world is poor oral hygiene status and aging of the population. Thus, there is an increase in the number of public health awareness programs, in order to promote the importance of proper oral hygiene and educate consumers on dental caries.
Dental cement is used to fill the gaps between the restorations and natural teeth. Moreover, it is considered to be crucial in the precise positioning of dental restorations. Mercury amalgam and alternative filling materials, such as composite resins, glass ionomer cement, ceramics, and gold alloys, are safe to use for restoring teeth.
Key Market Trends
The Zinc Phosphate Segment is Anticipated to Register Good Growth Over the Forecast Period
Zinc phosphate cement is one of the oldest and widely-used cement, mainly for luting permanent metal restorations. Zinc phosphate witnessed high growth, in terms of adoption, due to high-strength cement base when mixed with zinc oxide powder and phosphoric acid liquid. There are many other uses of this cement, including the permanent cementation of crowns, orthodontic appliances, intraoral splints, and fixed partial dentures. Thus, this dental material is witnessing a high clinical success rate, primarily associated with its long-term usage. The increasing prevalence of dental caries is a major factor in boosting the market growth. According to the World Health Organization, more than 530 million children suffer from dental caries of primary teeth.
