Industry Trends A major limiter preventing market growth in the dental bone graft substitute and other biomaterials markets is the commoditization across the dental bone graft substitute and dental barrier membrane segments. While various distributors compete for market share, many receive their products from the same suppliers, and further market penetration of small competitors has
Industry Trends The drive towards commoditization has limited the dental implants market. While premium implant companies control a large portion of the market, more affordable value and discount options are on the rise. As a result, many companies have engaged in price cuts to attract customers from their competitors. Even premium companies are recognizing the
Industry Trends An ongoing trend within the dental prosthetic market would be the increasing movement towards digitization, which is also driving market growth. The digital denture market encompasses both dentures that are produced via 3D printers and those developed from CAD/CAM technology. The current 3D printer market is largely centralized around models and trials. As such,
Industry Trends The most impactful factor limiting growth of the digital dentistry market is the emergence of relatively inexpensive products. Foreign, inexpensive brands have penetrated the market for zirconia CAD/CAM blocks and discs in the United States and Europe, driving the overall ASP downwards. Generic brands produced in the U.S. have captured a notable portion
The full report suite on the Brazilian market for digital dentistry includes CAD/CAM systems and CAD/CAM materials (blocks and discs). An appendix on rapid prototyping systems has been added separately, due to the new nature of the market.
Industry Trends Growth of the denture market is dictated by a couple of factors, including the aging population. The elderly population in the United States consists of the largest demographic of edentulous patients. As such, growth of the elderly population will increase the potential volume of patients for denture procedures, thereby stimulating market growth. In
The full report suite on the Brazil market for dental bone graft substitutes includes dental bone graft substitutes and dental membranes. In addition to the primary market segments, there is an appendix outlining the emergence of dental growth factor products. However, as this market is relatively small, a complete market analysis of the respective space was not conducted in for this report.
The full report suite on the Brazil market for dental implant fixtures and final abutments includes dental implant fixtures and final abutment materials. In addition, there is an appendix outlining the emergence of treatment planning software and surgical guides. However, as these markets remain relatively small, a complete market analysis of the respective spaces was not conducted in this report.
Dental bone grafting procedures are typically associated with dental implants to restore the edentulous area of a missing tooth. Dental implants require sufficient bone tissue in the jawbone to support the implant and ensure proper integration into the mouth. If a patient has endured being toothless (edentulism) for a prolonged period, they run a high probability of having insufficient bone tissue. In this case, they ideally required a bone graft in order to maximize the outcome of a dental implant surgery.
The bone grafting market is segmented on the basis of the materials origins. Dental bone graft procedures include autografts, allografts, xenografts and synthetics.
Barrier membranes are a critical component to regeneration therapy and are aimed at restoring the form and function of the mouth. Commercially available on the market, barrier membranes function in dental surgeries to help retain bone grafting materials, to exclude epithelium and connective tissue from entering into sites of desired bone and ligament regeneration, or for the combination of these reasons. Whether restoring lost bone around teeth or implants, or in larger areas of the jaws affected by trauma or disease, too often there is inadequate gingival tissue to cover the membranes, leading to membrane exposure, extensive membrane contamination and procedural failure, which is unacceptable.
Dental implant fixtures are artificial tooth roots that support a restoration placed for a missing tooth or teeth and aid in the prevention of jaw bone loss. They are typically offered in the form of a metal-based material such as titanium and are inserted into the jaw to replace missing teeth. They can be described based on their shape and method of attachment to the jaw. In the case that a patient suffers tooth loss from tooth decay, root canal failure, gum disease (periodontists), trauma to the mouth (a tooth injury), excessive wear and tear or congenital defects, he or she may be in the position to receive an implant fixture. Other options are available on the market in the case that a patient has a missing tooth. Experts now regard implant fixtures with attached crowns as the preferred method for treating tooth loss because implants maintain the same functionalities as natural teeth and help preserve the jaw structure by preventing atrophy from bone loss. Bridgework and dentures are an alternative solution that addresses the cosmetic issue of having a missing tooth, but they do not prevent bone loss. Permanent implants maintain proper chewing function and exert appropriate, natural forces on the jawbone to keep it functional and healthy.
A dental abutment is a metal piece that connects to a dental implant fixture via an abutment screw. The abutment further functions as a connector between the implant fixture and final outer crown placed on top of the implant. Often times, a provincial abutment is administered, but ultimately it must be replaced by a final abutment to ensure a permanent solution. Abutments are offered in a variety of material types including titanium, steel, ceramic, zirconia and even gold.
