The American population is increasingly aware of the benefits of better oral health. This trend is resulting in more trips to the dental office for diagnostic and preventative procedures, such as x-rays and cleanings. During these dental office visits, threats to oral health are identified and treated, resulting in a comparatively lower rates of operations to restore severely decayed teeth, such as core build-ups.

The aging generation born between 1944-1964, commonly referred to as the “Baby Boomers”, currently has a population of 76 million and will be a major driver of the dental materials market. The baseline health of this generation has improved over previous generations; however, the dental needs of this population will increase with age. This age group is at an increased risk of caries from gum recession and dry mouth from prescription medication use. In addition, this age group is also at higher risk of secondary coronal caries, as restorations acquired decades ago will begin to fail with time. As such, this age group’s demand for dental care will increase.
