Dentists are typically hesitant towards adopting emerging trends in the industry. The older generation of dentists tends to be conservative in their practice. In addition, dentists are often unwilling to invest a large sum of money into new technologies, especially with minimal research articles and publications verifying their effectiveness. In the past, minimal scientific proof deterred dentists from purchasing capital equipment such as dental surgical lasers.
The dental lasers market is expected to grow to over $151 million by 2023 in the United States, and $60 million in Europe.
The dental laser market in Europe is an exciting new area of investment for dental equipment companies. This market has a great potential for growth as dental lasers are expected to become staples of dental offices in the next few decades. However, the current economic situation and the existing reimbursement policies in some European countries are preventing the laser market from growing. Sales of dental lasers are expected to increase through 2023; the market value will slightly increase due to higher unit sales and inexpensive, smaller dental lasers entering the market.
Dental surgical lasers especially all-tissue lasers, are quite expensive in relation to most other dental equipment purchases, but they compensate with their wide range of applications in both hard and soft tissue operations. They can be used for incisions, excisions, periodontal treatment and bone surgery. With all-tissue lasers, the switch from soft to hard tissue applications is as simple as a change in settings. Additionally, dental lasers provide greater patient comfort during painful and invasive procedures. Traditional tools such as scalpels often cause trauma to the affected areas of soft tissue. With dental lasers, there is a significant reduction in bleeding of the gums and pain associated with the incisions; coagulation of the blood vessels is promoted from the thermal heating of the tissue, while the nerve endings are sealed off, which prevents the patient from experiencing excessive pain.

Dental Lasers Market Share Insights
Biolase dominated both the soft and all-tissue laser markets in the United States but was only the second leading manufacturer in the European market. Biolase dominates because of its strong reputation as a reliable, high-end product and its ability to cater to a large audience through a diverse and innovative product line, offering solutions for any need and price point. AMD Laser was the second leading competitor in the soft tissue laser space in the U.S., owing credit to its extremely cost effective products in the diode segment, the largest of the three segments in this market. The low cost of these systems made the product extremely attractive to smaller practices and first time purchasers of dental lasers alike.
In the European dental lasers market, Fotona was the market leader by a significant margin over Biolase. The company is based in Slovenia and is best known for its combination Er:YAG and Nd:YAG lasers. The company benefited from its strong distribution partnerships with Henry Schein and other major regional distributors. Fotona had two lines of products, the AT Fidelis® and the LightWalker®, both offered as combo units to the dentist. The convenience of combining soft and hard tissue procedures in one laser was an attractive feature for many dentists. However, this market was significantly limited compared to diode lasers due to intense pricing pressures from other types of lasers, most notably diode lasers.
