Dental laboratory ovens are used in fixed appliance fabrication and they are one of the vital components in dental laboratories. Dental laboratory functions are used for various functions such as sintering, heating, preheating, polymerization and curing. Dental laboratory ovens are used during the production of ceramic dental restoration such as crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays. Dental laboratory oven employs high temperature and pressure to process ceramic material into final states of hardening. Dental laboratory ovens are easy to use and extremely efficient in dental office and laboratories. Various dental laboratory ovens come with fully automated vacuum furnace for drying and baking of ceramics with vacuum or without vacuum.
The dental laboratory ovens have features such as pre-set programs, touchscreen controls, and can be connected to the internet. Dental laboratory ovens are used with CAD/CAM milled restorations and also with glaze systems, which add final esthetic polish. Dental laboratory ovens are designed to work with a wide range of ceramic materials, and some dental laboratory ovens are designed to produce the pressure needed to press glass ceramics, and other pressable materials.
Rapid rise in the prevalence of oral disease, increasing geriatric population, growing awareness regarding oral hygiene are factors expected to drive the growth of the market for dental laboratory oven. Increasing medical tourism in emerging countries and advancement in the technology of dental laboratory equipment are the other factors expected to spur the growth of the market for dental laboratory oven. Growing focus of the key players on the emerging markets and increased popularity of CAD/CAM technologies are some of the other factors expected to propel the growth of the dental laboratory ovens market. However, high cost of the equipment and shortage of skilled labor in developing and under developed countries are factors expected to restrain the growth of the dental laboratory oven market.
The global dental laboratory ovens market can be segmented on basis of product type, end users and geography.
