Dental implants are metal posts or frames or surgical components like a tooth root that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gums. Dental implants support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. Dental implants provide stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges are mounted to securely fit dental implants that would not slip or shift while eating and speaking. Therefore, dental implants are more natural than conventional bridges or dentures.
According to the study “United States Dental Implants Market Outlook to 2025”, dental implant is similar to artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws which bond with the natural bone. They become a muscular base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns. Abutment is a connector placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support the custom-made crowns. Modern dental implants are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth which reflect and function naturally. Dental implant depends on the specific need, medical and dental history, jawbone condition, and implanting procedure. Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry, when performed by an experienced dentist. Implants are the only dental restoration devices that preserve natural bone and actually help to stimulate bone growth.
The leading players within United States dental implants market are Nobel Biocare Services AG, Straumann Holding AG, Dentsply Sirona Inc, Zimmer Biomet Holdings Inc, Osstem Implant Co Ltd and KYOCERA Medical Corp. Leading players in the dental implants market are concentrated due to few vendors creating a competitive environment among companies based on factors such as technology, price, features and product quality. Endosteal implants and subperiosteal implants are the two types of dental implants available in the United States.
An advantage of dental implant is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or eliminated to hold the new replacement tooth/teeth in place. To establish dental implants, an individual needs to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implants. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are a must for long-term healthy dental implants. Dental implanting is an expensive procedure compared to other methods of tooth replacement. Majority of the dental implant procedures processed in the United States are successful because the individuals practice good oral hygiene, avoid smoking, regular dental visits and avoid chewing on hard foods.
Availability of advanced dental implants, presence of prosthetic products such as dental crowns, and the increasing investments in R&D for the development of dental implants, will positively impact the growth of the dental implant market over the next few years. The introduction of robotic dental surgery has enhanced the dental implantation procedures with accurate placement of the dental implants which are reliable. Robotic platform has enhanced the dental implants market due to their real-time, physical, and visual guidance.
