Dental Restorative Supplies: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) May 20, 2013
Follow us on LinkedIn – Dental caries or tooth cavities is one of the major issues facing public healthcare systems in countries across the world. A significant proportion of the world’s adult population and around 60-80% of children in the school-going age group suffer from dental caries. Key reasons cited for the global increase in dental caries include rise in the consumption of carbohydrate rich diets, sugary drinks and foods, and improper brushing, among others. Against this backdrop, the growing need for restorative dental care is driving growth in the dental restorative supplies market.
One of the most widely used restoration materials is amalgam, although its use has been declining due to the rising awareness over the risks posed by mercury contamination. Though demand for alternatives to amalgam is rising, lack of clinical support for such materials continue to make amalgams the most widely used material for restorative procedures. In the coming years, the growing preference for natural tooth-like restorations among patients is expected to affect demand for non-aesthetic restorative materials such as amalgams, gold, and silver. Manufacturing procedures for dental restorative supplies is witnessing increased use of sophisticated machines and digital technology, due largely to the rising demand for precise and cost-effective restorations. Additive manufacturing technologies are also gaining prominence, given the growing competitive need to produce high-quality restorations while achieving significant savings in both time and cost.
The market is broadly impacted by the economic climate, changing dental insurance and reimbursement policies. Sales of restorative supplies declined during the 2007-2009 recession period largely as a result of the decline in patient traffic and the subsequent fall in demand for supplies from dental labs. Adverse economic conditions also led patients to lay emphasis on cost effective yet high-quality restorations. In the coming years, rising number of edentulous people and increasing burden of dental caries are expected to stimulate demand for dental restorative materials.
