US Dental Equipment Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2020 - 2025)
Published: June 1, 2020 Content info: 80 Pages

The United States Dental equipment market is driven by the increasing burden of oral diseases and the ageing population in the United States. According to the American Academy of Periodontology 2019, half of Americans adults above 30 years of age have periodontitis in one or more teeth, the more advanced form of periodontal disease that equals approximately 64.7 million Americans. Moreover, about 7.8 % of those adults have severe periodontitis.​

Additionally, the rising demand for cosmetic surgery, growing geriatric population, and an increasing number of dental clinics and practitioners providing dental care services are the other factors driving the growth of the US dental equipment market. A survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry in 2017, showed that almost 99.7% of the American adults believe that a good-looking smile is an important asset that attracts the opposite sex and works for advancing careers. Therefore, many of the Americans are preferring the dentistry procedure, which is ultimately driving the US dental equipment market.

However, the high cost of the procedures and lack of proper reimbursement policies are likely to hamper the growth of the market studied.

Key Market Trends

The Crowns and Bridges Segment is expected to Dominate the US Dental Equipment Market

  • A dental crown covers the damaged tooth and restores its shape, size, and strength, and improves its overall appearance. A dental bridge is used to fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
  • A bridge includes two or more crowns for the teeth present on either side of the gap. After examination of the teeth, the dentist takes an impression of the tooth, to provide an exact mould for the crown or bridge. The crown or bridge can be manufactured manually or with the help of CAD/CAM technology.
  • The crowns are a fusion of all-ceramic and metal-alloy crowns. Advantages of this technology are its greater strength and durability. Owing to the emergence of other technologies, like all-ceramic crowns, the popularity of porcelain has been declining, over the past few years.
  • Although there are other emerging technologies, dental porcelain-fused-to-metal technology is expected to continue to be in demand in the US dental equipment market.

Competitive Landscape

The market studied rapidly evolved over the past few years. The industry observed significant changes, in terms of adoption of market strategies, such as product developments, mergers, and acquisitions. For instance, in February 2019, Align technology has launched new IteroElement 5d imaging system for comprehensive preventative and restorative oral care at IDS. First intraoral scanner with near-infrared imaging (NIRI) technology that scans the internal structure of a tooth (enamel & dentin) in real-time.

Major companies operating in US dental equipment market are Danaher Corporation, 3M, Straumann Holding AG, Dentsply Sirona, Zimmer Biomet, and Henry Schein Inc., among others.
