Rising Prevalence of Tooth Loss

Tooth loss is the prime indication of visiting a dentist to restore the tooth. Various factors lead to tooth loss, which includes aging, accidental injuries in the jawline, tooth decaying, or other related diseases. Tooth loss affects the beauty of the smile and mental status of a person in their adolescent health. In a broad spectrum, the survey conducted by the National Health Services, it is stated that the prevalence of both partial and total tooth loss in adults and seniors has decreased since the early 1970s. The development in dental science has led to various restoration techniques that have enabled to make a person smile again through esthetic. However, there are various people across the world who are not able to access dental treatment. The significant disparities in the various rural areas of the world cannot access dental care due to various factors. Hence, the majority of the patients across the world suffer from tooth loss due to some key factors such as tooth decay, periodontal diseases, injuries, accidents, and others.

Although tooth loss remains the major factor among the aging population across the world, as per the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP), 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. Additionally, 40 million people on an average in the United States are missing all of their teeth. The ACP estimates that this number is expected to rise over the next two decades owing to increasing cavity and tooth decay. Similarly, according to a Brazilian study published in the International Journal of Dentistry, the major reasons responsible for implantation procedures in Brazil were cavities (38.4%), periodontal diseases (32.2%), eruption problems (6.4%), orthodontics (5.7%), prosthetics (3.6%), injury/trauma (2.6%), occlusal problems (1.1%), and others (9%).

Technological Developments in Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry is effective teeth and mouth care solution that benefits overall oral health, specifically facial appearance. New dental implant technology allows dentists to insert implants through minimally invasive surgeries and incorporate advanced navigation and monitoring technologies. However, conventional dental implants are one of the greatest inventions in dentistry in recent years. The dental implant procedure may not be ideal for everybody. However, dental technology has now improved implantation procedures with the help of innovative products such as mini-implants, dentures, and other prosthetics.

For instance, in October 2018, Straumann introduced a new standard line of mini Restorative Dentistry at the 27th Annual Scientific Meeting of the European Association for Osseointegration conducted in Vienna. Mini Restorative Dentistry implants are small diameter monotype dental-implants, offering cost-effective, minimally invasive, and immediate solution for edentulous patients having horizontal bone. Also, in September 2018, Dentsply Sirona introduced Azento, a single tooth replacement in one box solution which can be modified or customized as per the needs and timeframes of the patients as well as dentists. Moreover, in March 2015, at the International Dental Show (IDS), Nobel Biocare, a Danaher company, introduced new NobelProcera FCZ, a new cement-free, full-contour implant crown with angulated screw channel for restoring molar teeth. The rising number of technologically advanced dental implants and their solutions used for restorative dentistry would propel the growth of the global dental laboratories market during the forecast period.
