Persistent Market Research states that the global dental implants market will grow at a rate of over 9% between 2020 and 2030.

The dental implants market is being driven by prosthetics. Also, the acceptance level on the part of dental implants is increasing amongst dental surgeons as well as patients due to the aesthetic sense instilled aftermath and 0% encroachment of soft tissues.

The dental lasers (laser dentistry) are looked upon as one of the most comfortable treatment options for dental implants that deal with hard/soft tissue. Dental lasers find their presence in whitening teeth, treating decaying of tooth, and gum disease. This step towards dental implants is expected to catalyze the dental implants market.

Dental biomaterials imply biocompatible synthetic materials and natural tissues used for restoring decayed, fractured, or damaged teeth. Biocompatible synthetic dental biomaterials include ceramics, metals, composite structures, and polymers, whereas the natural tissues include dentin, bone, cementum, enamel, and the other intraoral tissues. Dental X-Ray systems play a vital role in locating the pain area.

Dental lights need to be in place to carry out flawless dental implant surgery. The ever-increasing awareness of the public regarding oral hygiene is expected to take the dental implants (better known as artificial tooth roots) market by storm in the forecast period.

How About the Life-Span of Dental Implants?

As per experts, dental implants do last for more than 2.5 decades or even more, subject to taking a proper care. The factors that influence the longevity of dental implants include frequency of brushing and flossing, frequency of visiting the dentist (paying a visit every 6 months  is recommended), biting down or chewing hard items like pencils or pen tips, using teeth to open the boxes, and – last, but not the least – the skill of dentists in placing the dental implant.

Success with dental implants is expected to drive the dental implants market in future, as higher success rates will encourage more people to go for dental implants.

All-on-4 Dental Implants – A Revolution

The patients encountering biomechanically compromised ambience like dismal quality bone could gain some respite on having implants spread anterioposteriorly. As such, longer implants could be placed. This is where all-on-4 dental implants could be proceeded with.

The method mentioned above does advocate the tilting of distal implants in the edentulous arches. This, in turn, looks after placing longer implants along with enhanced prosthetic support to the shorter cantilever arm. Anchorage in the bone could also see improvement. So, merely 4 implants help edentulous patients with complete arch restoration. Administration of all-on-4 implants is expected to upscale the dental implants market.

What do Dental Implants say in terms of “Type”?

Dental implants consist of two types – subperiosteal and endosteal. The former ones have been rendered obsolete as they are reported to give poor results in the long run. These implants implied resting on jawbone’s top under gum tissue. Endosteal implant happens in the bone. All-on-4 implants fall in the category of “endosteal implants”.

A single dental implant is bound to cost depending upon the geography. On an average, a single dental implant does cost US $3000-4500. It is inclusive of surgery and the implant crown. The dental implant procedure proves to be costly affair on the whole, as dental insurance policy is non-existent in developing economies and doesn’t cover dental implants in developed economies.


Europe rules the roost with titanium-based dental implant expected to witness a CAGR of over 9% between 2020 and 2030. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate, especially due to India, South Korea, and China. North America is already in the saturation stage.

Competitive Landscape

The key players in the dental implants market include Zimmer Dental Inc., Sirona Dental Systems, Inc. Nobel Biocare, and Institut Straumann AG. From an inorganic perspective, Zimmer Dental did partner with Zfx to come up with Zimmer Zfx CAD/CAM Abutments inn titanium.

Dentistry is defined as the evaluation, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area and the adjacent and associated structures using surgical, nonsurgical or related procedures. The dental devices market covers dental biomaterials, dental implants, dental radiology equipment, orthodontic materials and products, digital dental X-ray systems, dental supplies, dental lasers, dental chairs, and others. A dental implant refers to an artificial tooth or a tooth root that is embedded surgically into the upper or lower jawbone. Dental implants are durable, stable, and strong; however, owing to normal wear and tear, they need to be re-tightened or replaced occasionally. The surgery involves procedures to replace missing tooth or teeth without disturbing the adjacent healthy teeth. Dental implants offer a very natural look and support and secure other bridges or dentures, if attached, well, thus making life more comfortable for the patient. Dental implants also help to restore or enhance facial tissues.

Increasing aging population, growing concern about oral hygiene and rising demand for cosmetic dentistry are some of the key growth drivers for the global dental implants market. In addition, rising disposable income in developing countries is also fuelling the growth of the global dental implants market. However, lack of awareness among people in developing countries and limited reimbursements for dental implants are some of the major factors restraining the growth of the global dental implants market. In addition, economic slowdown is also restraining the growth of the global dental implants market.

Technological advancements in dental implants surgery such as CAD, mini dental implants, and 3D laser dentistry are some of the trend for the growth of the global dental implants market. In addition, medical tourism in various countries such as Malaysia, Hungary, Costa Rica, Mexico, Thailand, and India is another trend for the growth of the global dental implants market. 

In the geographical analysis, the report identifies and analyses market size and forecast of Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World (Row). Europe is dominating the global dental implants market due to growing concern for oral hygiene, increased clinical adoption of dental implants therapy, and technological advancements. Europe is further segmented into Germany and the U.K. Similarly, North America is segmented into the U.S. Asia Pacific is further segmented into Japan and India. Asia Pacific is the fastest growing market for dental implants due to large base of aging population in India and China.
