Our mouth is filled with bacteria which forms a plaque on the teeth. If the plaque is not removed it can harden and cause gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is a lenient form of gum disease which causes inflammation of the gums. Symptoms of gingivitis are tender gums, bad breath, pain while chewing and loose teeth. The risk factors for gingivitis are smoking, older age, chewing tobacco, genetics, and consumption of drugs such as steroids. Untreated gingivitis can lead to periodontitis. In periodontitis, spaces are formed due to pulling away of gums from the teeth. The symptoms of periodontitis are formation of pus in between teeth and gums, swollen gums, tender gums, bad breath, formation of space between teeth and loose teeth. The risk factors for periodontitis are smoking or chewing tobacco, older age, poor oral health habits and gingivitis. There are three types of periodontitis, namely, necrotizing periodontal disease, aggressive periodontitis, and chronic periodontitis. Moreover, dental abscess is another periodontal disease. In dental abscess, pus gets collected in gums, teeth or bones and root of a tooth is infected. Causes of dental abscesses are tooth decay and consumption of sugary food in excess amount. The symptoms of dental abscess are swollen gums, bad breath, bitter taste in the mouth, sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures and pain while chewing. The risk factors for dental abscess are decayed tooth and poor oral habits. In cases of periodontitis, dental implants can be used.
Gum diseases lead to teeth loss and gum infection. Dental implants are used to restore the teeth which are lost due to gum diseases. They are metal posts or frames or replacement tooth roots surgically placed in the jawbone beneath the gums.Further, dental implants help in maintaining natural shape of face and smile. They are designed to fuse with the bone. These implants are made from zirconium and titanium. As zirconium is strong and hard it is used in the making of bridges and crowns. It is used in the form of zirconium oxide in these implants. Zirconium implants are made as one piece. However, titanium implants are versatile when compared to zirconium implants as they can be made into two-piece systems or one piece systems. Titanium has high biocompatibility. Moreover, it is thermally non-conductive; no corrosion takes place and no sign of piezoelectric current. Further, intramucosal implants, a type of dental implant are projections made of titanium which are attached with an acrylic to a denture. Moreover, subperiosteal implants are dental implants that are placed under the gum. They are used in patients having shallow jawbone. When it comes to endosteal Implants, they are placed in jawbone.
The main reason for the growth of dental implants market is growing awareness about oral healthcare. For instance, according to FDI World Dental Federation report for the year 2014, worldwide, between 60 and 90% of school children have dental caries. Moreover, increasing geriatric population will further contribute to the growth of the dental implant market.For instance, according to WHO, in 2015, 900 million people were 60 years of age or older and this number is expected to reach 2 billion by 2050. Also, the high prevalence of periodontal diseases and dental caries will fuel the growth of this market. For instance, according to FDI World Dental Federation, in 2014,30% of people worldwide aged between 65 and 74 years have lost all their natural teeth. Furthermore, rise in demand for cosmetic dentistry will fuel the growth of this market. On the other hand, limited reimbursements for dental implants surgery can hamper the growth of the dental implants market.
The key strategy followed by major companies in the dental implants market is acquisition to gain more share. For instance, on March 2017,Dentsply Sirona acquired Recherches Techniques Dentaires (RTD). With this acquisition, Dentsply Sirona will be able offer dental professionals with solutions for safer, faster and better tooth restoration and root canals. This acquisition will help Dentsply Sirona to gain more market share.
Some of the major companies in dental implants market are Nobel Biocare Services AG, BioHorizons, Inc., Institut Straumann AG, Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc., DENTSPLY SIRONA Inc., OSSTEM IMPLANT.CO. LTD., DENTIUM Co., Ltd., and DENTIS.

Market Modeling and Forecasting
We use epidemiology and capital equipment-based models to forecast market size of different segments at country and regional level.
- Epidemiology-based Forecasting Model: This method uses epidemiology data gathered through various publications and from physicians to estimate population of patients, flow of treatment of individual disease and therapies. The data collected through this method includes statics on incidence of disease, population suffering from disease, and treatment population. This method is used to understand:
- Number of patients for particular device or medical procedure and
- Repeated use of particular device depending on health and condition of patient
- Capital-based Forecasting Model: This method of forecasting is based on number of replacements, installed-based and new sales of capital equipment used in various healthcare and diagnostic centers. These three parameters are calculated and forecast is developed. Installation base is calculated as average number of units per facility; while sales for particular year is calculated from number of new and replace units. Secondary data is collected through various supply chain intermediaries and opinion leaders to arrive at installation and sales rate. These techniques help our analysts in validating market and developed market estimates and forecast.
We do forecast on basis of several parameters such as market drivers, market opportunities, industry trends government regulations, raw materials supply and trade dynamics to ensure relevance of forecast with market scenario. With increasing need to granulized information, we used bottom-up methodology for forecasting where we evaluate each regional segment differently and combined all forecast to develop final market forecast.
We believe primary research is a very important tool in analyzing and forecasting different markets. In order to make sure accuracy of our findings, our team conducts primary interviews at every stage of research to gain deep insights into current business environment and future trends and key developments in market.
