Growing Prevalence of Dental Diseases and Demand for Minimally Invasive Treatment
The prevalence of gum-related diseases is increasing. Nearly one-third of all the adults, i.e., 1 out of 5 children in the U.S. suffer from untreated tooth decay. Tooth decay can be treated with laser devices, which are minimally invasive and lead to less pain. According to CDC more than 60 million people in the U.S. are suffering from gum diseases and risk of oral systemic connection.
New techniques are designed that reduce the usage of drills and avoid the usage of anesthesia. They provide successful long-term outcomes as no heat is involved during the treatment and there is no damage to the living tissues. The lasers improve the soft tissue treatments, reduce inflammation, and enhance the tissue repair process. Increased incidence and demand for minimal invasive procedures is projected to boost the global demand for dental lasers.

Growing Geriatric and Expanding Edentulous Population
The increasing screening rates as well as geriatric population are the critical drivers of the dental lasers market. Approximately, 32% of the world’s population aged 65 and above is edentulous. According to estimates of the German Oral Health Study, 12% of the population between 65 and 75 years have lost their teeth. Thus, the growing elderly population is an important factor expected to drive the growth of the dental laser market during the forecast period. People aged above 60 years are at a high risk of developing dental disorders. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 27% adults in the U.S. suffer from tooth decay and 46% of adults aged 30 years or older suffer from gum diseases.

Growing Per Capita Income
The per capita spending on health care is increasing worldwide, which is directly expected to boost the growth of the healthcare sector and subsequently, the medical device industry in the near future. It has also been documented that the global per capita health care spending has almost doubled. Rapid economic growth and increasing disposable income are expected to the prime factors responsible for the growth of the overall healthcare industry. The Global Health Observatory Data reflected that healthcare expenditures accounted for 10.0% of the gross domestic product of the economies on an average in 2013.
Increasing healthcare spending is expected to directly impact the need for better dental treatment, which, in turn, is expected to create high growth opportunities for the players operating in the global dental laser market over the forecast period. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), about US$ 1,058.0 per capita was spent on health expenditure in 2014 worldwide.

Increasing approvals for dental lasers by FDA and other agencies has generated a lot of market enthusiasm. Over the last few years, leading players in the laser equipment segment of the dental lasers market have received regulatory approvals across major geographic markets, which has enabled them to launch various products in the market. For instance, in February 2017, BIOLASE’s new Waterlase Express Er,Cr:YSGG all-tissue laser system received FDA clearance for its commercial distribution.
Advancement in technology have widened the laser applications in endodontics and orthodontics. Various types of lasers are used in repairing the porosity of the teeth, welding of implants, repairing of broken clasps and for whitening of the teeth. For example, Er:YAG lasers are used an a substitute for acid etching of enamel. Laser etching is painless and does not involve either vibration or heat. Moreover, the easy handling of the apparatus makes the treatment highly attractive for usage. Also, as the technique is effective it will further reduce the fear in pediatric patients. Furthermore, growing awareness is expected to surge the demand for dental lasers and the drive growth of the market.
