Dental devices and instruments are tools that dental professionals use to provide dental treatment. They include tools to examine, manipulate, treat, restore, and remove teeth and surrounding oral structures.
- Due to the increase in oral diseases, especially among the children and the geriatric population, there has been an increase in the number of dental implants and oral surgeries being performed. Moreover, technological advancements have made these devices more efficient and safer. Hence all these factors have been driving the growth of the dental devices market in India.
- However, excessive cost of treatment and lack of awareness regarding oral health in many parts of developing countries like India are restraining the market growth.
Key Market Trends
Radiology Equipment Segment is Expected to Register High Growth During the Forecast Period
Dental radiology includes radiographs that are commonly called X-rays. Dentists use radiographs for many reasons, including finding hidden dental structures, malignant or benign masses, bone loss, and cavities.
Dental caries, infections, and other changes in the bone density, and the periodontal ligament, appear darker because X-rays readily penetrate these less dense structures. Dental restorations (fillings, crowns) may appear lighter or darker, depending on the density of the material.
There is an increasing prevalence of dental caries that is increasing in India, especially among the children. The 5-year prevalence of dental caries has increased from 59.1% in 2007-2011 to 72.9% in 2012-2016 among children aged between 6 to 10 years of age. Therefore, the increasing prevalence of dental caries across India helps to increase the demand for dental radiology, which is expected to help the market growth.
