Dental Restorative Supplies: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 25, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – Dental restoration is a procedure where a restorative material is used to restore the morphology, functionality and integrity of a missing or damaged tooth, caused by either by caries or due to external trauma. The need to repair decayed, damaged, worn out or missing teeth is driving demand for dental restoration procedures. In addition to the need for restoration of broken or damaged teeth, restorative procedures are also performed to improve aesthetics. Dental restorative supplies are materials that are used to seal, line, and fill excavated tooth cavities and repair broken or injured teeth. Dental amalgams, bonding agents, composite resins, glass ionomers and dental ceramics are the most commonly used materials for dental procedures. The type of material used for dental restorations is significantly influenced by factors such as type of tooth and site of cavity, patient preferences, procedure cost, and availability of insurance coverage. Most of the dental restorative supplies are capable of withstanding extreme conditions, which is of huge significance due to the fact that significant force and contact stress is created due to the mastication process.
In the coming years, rising number of edentulous people and increasing burden of dental caries are expected to stimulate demand for dental restorative materials. Growing popularity of cosmetic procedures, driven by rising awareness among people about dental aesthetics, is encouraging individuals to spend more on high-quality restorative procedures. Of the various types of materials, dental amalgam is one of the most widely used materials, although its use has been declining due to rising awareness over the risks posed by mercury contamination. Also, the lack of clinical support for these alternatives implies that dental amalgams continue to be widely used in dental restorations. The need for alternatives to dental amalgam and better materials is contributing to the increased use of materials such as glass ionomers and composite resins. Composites are likely to continue gaining prominence in dental restorative procedures, given their ability to offer aesthetic advantages over dental amalgam-based restorations and also involve minimally invasive treatments requiring lesser loss of natural tooth structure.
As stated by the new market research report on Dental Restorative Supplies, Europe represents the largest market, worldwide. Aging population prone to dental disorders is a major growth driver in the region. European countries are making active efforts to phase out the use of dental amalgams in restoration procedures. The scenario is encouraging demand for alternatives such as composite resins and glass ionomers. Demand for composite dental filling materials is also being bolstered by the rising number of patients opting for cosmetic dentistry procedures. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing regional market led by the heavy burden of dental diseases. Changing dietary habits and poor oral care in the poor and disadvantaged sections of the society in Southeast Asian countries represent factors responsible for the high incidence of dental diseases in the region. Dental amalgam is widely used restorative material in most countries across the region, although demand for composites is steadily gaining momentum. Asia-Pacific is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 6% over the analysis period.
