The Dental Lasers Market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period. A dental laser is a type of laser designed for dental treatment procedures. Dental laser was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the early 1990s, in the United States for the treatment of gums or gingiva, later in the year 1996, these lasers were used on hard tissue like teeth or the bone of the mandible. Several dental lasers are currently in use with different wavelengths and for different applications in the dentistry. Dental lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. Dental lasers are of soft tissue and hard tissue types and these are used to treat tooth decay, gum disease, biopsy or lesion removal and teeth whitening. Dental lasers in surgical and dental procedures, acts as a cutting instrument and acts as a heat source and enhances the effect of tooth-bleaching agents. Dental lasers are highly preferable for dental treatments due to less contamination, non-invasive nature, less trauma, less healing time, absence of anaesthesia necessity and portability of dental lasers.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), half of the individuals in the United States aged 30 or older have periodontitis, which is a more advanced form of periodontal disease and this equals approximately 64.7 million individuals in the United States. In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO), estimated that severe periodontal (gum) disease is the 11th most prevalent disease globally.
Growing instances of dental caries, gingivitis and periodontics and rising demand for minimally invasive procedures are the key driving factors in dental lasers market.
Key Market Trends
Soft Tissue Dental Lasers Segment is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share in the Dental Lasers Market
Soft tissue lasers are of the diode, CO2, and Nd: YAG Lasers. CO2 lasers are 10,600 nm infrared wavelength, which is highly absorbed by water used for intraoral procedures. Traditional 10,600 nm CO2 lasers are currently used for soft tissues only which are very efficient and exhibit excellent hemostasis. Diode lasers are invisible near-infrared wavelengths and current machines range from 805-1064 nm used for soft tissue procedures such as gingivectomy. Diode lasers are quite popular due to their compact size and relatively affordable pricing. Diode lasers exhibit bactericidal capabilities and used for adjunctive periodontal procedures and laser-assisted tooth whitening. Nd: YAG lasers re a near-infrared wavelength of 1064 nm and are primarily used for periodontal treatments.
According to the European Federation of Periodontology, in Europe, periodontal diseases are the most common conditions, 8 out of the 10 individuals aged over 35 years of age suffer from gum diseases. In addition, periodontal diseases represent a major cause of expenditure in the adult and geriatric population. Soft tissue dental lasers segment holds a significant market share in the dental lasers market and is anticipated to show a similar trend over the forecast period due to painless treatment compared to traditional techniques, like scalpels, furthermore, these also prevent bacterial infections after dental procedures.
Rising prevalence of soft tissue disorders, such as periodontal disorders and gingivitis, increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures coupled with the rise in disposable income are the key driving factors in the soft tissue dental lasers segment.
North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period
North America is expected to hold a major market share in the dental lasers market due to the rising prevalence of gingivitis, caries, periodontics, and high disposable income in this region. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 27% of United states adults have tooth decay, while 46% of adults aged over 30 years suffer from gum diseases. In addition, according to the American Dental Association (ADA) estimates there are 10,658 orthodontists are currently practising in the United States which translates to about 3.27 orthodontists per every 100,000 population. Moreover, innovations and developments in the dental lasers, growing awareness on dental hygiene, an increasing number of dental practitioners and the presence of well-established healthcare infrastructure is also fueling the growth of the overall regional market to a large extent.
The Dental Lasers Market is consolidated competitive and consists of several global players. In terms of market share, few of the major players are currently dominating the market. Some of the companies which are currently dominating the market are Dentsply Sirona, Biolase, Inc, Fotona D.D., Gigaalaser, Lumenis, Convergent Dental, J. MORITA CORP, The Yoshida Dental MFG. CO., LTD, Danaher Corporation and A.R.C. Laser.
