Industry Trends The overall U.S. dental material market is projected to experience modest growth over the forecast period, largely limited by the emergence of intraoral scanners. Although digitization is yet to become widespread, it has already impacted the dental material market, particularly towards impression and temporary restorative materials. As digital impression taking scanners are becoming
Dental impression materials are used to take an imprint of hard and soft tissues in the intraoral cavity. The production of the mold requires placing viscous impression material in a patients mouth. This material later solidifies and produces a cast, which is sent to a dental laboratory. Typically, these solid tooth impressions serve to develop crowns, bridges and dentures.
Dental impression materials are used to take an impression of the hard and the soft tissue in the intraoral cavity. They are then sent to the dental laboratory to be used in the production of prosthetics. In essence, they are an imprint of the teeth structure and the soft tissue surrounding it. The conventional method of taking an impression involves placing the material on the teeth to produce a cast. The type of material used in this process matters significantly, as it has to represent the actual teeth structure accurately and should remain stable until the production of the restoration.
