A dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. Basically, they are artificial tooth roots that are used to support false teeth or bridges. They are made of titanium and/or other materials, which are compatible with the human body. They are substitute missing teeth and are placed in the jaw to support restorations.
Dental implants provide a strong foundation and are an ideal option for people who have lost a tooth or are missing a few teeth. Prosthetic dentistry involves the diagnosis and treatment of infected teeth and the reconstruction of missing teeth using crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures.
The basis for modern dental implants is a biologic process called osseointegration, in which materials such as titanium form an intimate bond to bone. The implant fixture is first placed so that it is likely to osseointegrate, then a dental prosthetic is added. A variable amount of healing time is required for osseointegration before either the dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge or denture) is attached to the implant or an abutment is placed which will hold a dental prosthetic.
Dental caries and periodontal (gum) disease are the leading causes of tooth loss; both are preventable. However, usually children’s do not take suitable preventive measures, leading to tooth loss or tooth decay, as there is high consumption of sugar. This will increase the prevalence of tooth caries and tooth loss thereby will increase the demand of dental implants. Further, increased demand of cosmetic dentistry, extended application of computer-aided design technology in implant dentistry, and increased demand of aesthetic restoration across the world are also anticipated to bolster the market, thereby contributing to the growth of the overall dental implants market.
The dental implants market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.3% from 2022 to 2029 to reach US$6.52 billion by 2029. The dental implants market is witnessing a growth in product demand owing to various reasons. The increased tooth loss and tooth decay due to age, bad eating habits, high-sugar & carbohydrate drinks intake, poor oral hygiene, road & sports related accidents, increase in number of tooth loss and tooth decay in rising geriatric population, and government imitations to create awareness of good oral health across the world is expected to drive the dental implants market. In addition, emerging economies and the growing integration of AI and robotics in dentistry will likely offer opportunities for market growth.
Based on product type, the endosteal implants segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global dental implants market in 2022. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the high success rate of endosteal implants, high awareness among dentists and patients regarding the benefits offered by endosteal implants, and low maintenance in the future.
Based on material, the market is segmented into titanium implants and zirconium implants. In 2022, the titanium implant segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global dental implants market. The largest share of this segment can be attributed to the high preference for titanium implants due to their high durability, high strength compared to ceramic implants, low weight, and biocompatibility.
Based on price, the market is segmented into premium dental implants and non-premium dental implants. The premium dental implants segment is expected to register a lucrative CAGR over the forecast period. The growth of the premium implants segment can be attributed to the high quality of premium implants, durability, and properties such as chemical and corrosion resistance.
Based on end user, the dental clinics segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global dental implants market in 2022. Factors such as the presence of a large number of dental clinics, the high preference among patients to visit dental clinics to avoid long waiting times compared to hospitals, and the economic cost for minor dental issues contribute to the large market share of this segment.
An in-depth analysis of the geographical scenario of the dental implants market provides insights into five major geographies (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa). In 2022, North America is expected to account for the largest share of the dental implants market, followed by Europe. Moreover, the presence of leading dental implants manufacturers, support from government and regulatory authorities to promote oral health, and various companies expanding their manufacturing capacities and operations contribute to the large market share of the market.
