The Dental Caries Treatment Market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. Dental caries is a biofilm disease that results in the localized destruction of tooth tissues by acids that are produced in the mouth from the bacterial fermentation of dietary carbohydrates. If pH becomes too acidic (below 5.5) in the environment surrounding tooth tissues, then demineralization of tooth enamel occurs which results in the dissolution of tooth structure. Dental caries is one of the most common global oral health problems in the world today. Dental caries can affect the people in various ways like infections, presence of tooth pain, affecting the growth in children, and also affecting communication skills and recreational activities. Moreover, oral cancer and oral tissue lesions are also significant health concerns. According to the World Health Organization, globally, the oral disease persists even after great improvements in the oral health of the population in several countries. Furthermore, poor oral health may have a profound effect on the quality of life and general health.
As per the study published in the Asian Journal of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences, worldwide, approximately 2.43 billion people (36% of the population) are affected with dental caries in their permanent teeth and in the case of baby teeth it affects about 620 million people (9% of the population). Moreover between 29% and 59% of adults above 50 years of age experience dental caries. In addition, annual treatment costs for dental caries is at least 4.5 billion dollars in the United States. Dental caries are most prevalent in South Asia, Middle East countries, Latin American countries and least prevalent in China.
Increasing prevalence of dental caries among the geriatric population and new innovations and developments in the dental caries treatment are the key driving factors in dental caries treatment market.
Key Market Trends
Endodontic Segment is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share in the Dental Caries Treatment Market
- Endodontics is the branch of clinical dentistry associated with the cause, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp. It is important during the root canal procedure to reduce inflammation and prevent infection.
- Globally, dental caries is a major health problem and is the most widespread non-communicable disease (NCD).
