A dental filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. It is additionally used to repair tooth decay, insignificant tooth fractures, and other harmed surfaces of the teeth. The dental filling procedure is done by removing the decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area, and then filling the cleaned-out cavity with a filling material. Materials used for fillings include gold, porcelain, a composite resin and an amalgam (an alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc). These materials are designed to interact with the oral system to treat, repair, augment or replace a tissue function of body. The best tooth fillings for a person depend on cost, what your insurance may cover, and your aesthetic preferences. The two most common types are amalgam and composite.
The global dental filling material market is expected to be driven by growing prevalence of dental disorders, increasing number of dentist, increasing patient awareness and demand. Dental caries (tooth decay) is the most the most prevalent chronic disease in both children and adults. Due to the changing life style people are suffering from various types of oral diseases, leading to the dental conditions which further boost the growth of the market. Dental caries is estimated to affect 60% to 90% of the population, increasing the requirement for high quality tooth fillings Furthermore, Increased public awareness for oral hygiene, strong public awareness trends regarding oral hygiene, favorable reimbursement scenario for tooth filling procedure have increased global number of dental procedures. However, inflammatory reactions caused by filling materials and stringent regulation is challenging the growth of the dental filling material market.
The report analyses the dental filling material market on the basis of type, type of material, end user and geography
Dental filling is determined by the extent of the repair, whether a person have allergies to certain materials, where in a mouth the filling is needed, and the cost. Considerations for different types include Amalgam, Composite Resin, Cast Gold, Ceramics / porcelain filling, Glass Ionomer and others. The two most common types are amalgam and composite resins.
Amalgam (silver) fillings are mixture of silver, tin, zinc, copper and mercury. These fillings are resistant to wear and relatively inexpensive. However, due to their dark color, they are more noticeable than porcelain or composite restorations and are not usually used in very visible areas, such as front teeth. Amalgam remains an important filling material in dentistry owing to its high durability and rising demand for cosmetic dental procedures
Composite resins is a mixture of plastic and fine glass particles. Composite resins are matched to be the same color as natural teeth and therefore used where a natural appearance is desired. These materials are mostly used for Small and large fillings, especially in front teeth or the visible parts of teeth and also for inlays. Growing preference for dental aesthetics among the people will result in increased demand and adoption of composite fillings. Several advantages offered such as dental aesthetics, dental filling in one visit and better strength will boost the composite tooth filling materials industry growth in the near future.
Gold fillings are made up of gold alloy (gold mixed with other metals. Gold inlays are well tolerated by gum tissues, and may last more than 20 years. For these reasons, many authorities consider gold the best filling material. However, it is often the most expensive choice and requires multiple visits.
Porcelain fillings are called inlays or onlays and are produced to order in a lab and then bonded to the tooth. They can be matched to the color of the tooth and resist staining. A porcelain restoration generally covers most of the tooth. Their cost is similar to gold.
Glass Ionomer Made of Acrylic and a component of glass called fluoroaluminosilicate. Glass ionomer used most commonly as cement for inlay fillings. The glass ionomer is typically used in people with a lot of decay in the part of the tooth that extends below the gum (root caries). It is also used for filling baby teeth and as a liner for other types of fillings.
Growing preference for dental aesthetics among the people will result in increased demand and adoption of composite fillings. Several advantages offered such as dental aesthetics, dental filling in one visit and better strength will boost the composite tooth filling materials industry growth in the near future.
By End User, the dental filling material market is segmented into Dental Clinics, Hospitals, and Dental Colleges among Others. Dental clinics are expected to dominate the end used segment in the global dental filling material market. Dental clinics have all the materials and tools for tooth filling processes at one place that makes it the most preferred place for tooth filling procedures. Increase in number of people opting for dental clinics due to easy accessibility and convenience contribute to the growth of the dental clinic segment.
Based on Geography, the global clinical nutrition market is segmented into North America, Europe, APAC and Rest of the World (RoW).North America and Europe region collectively held for the largest market share of dental filling material market. Presence of large number of dental clinics, and better reimbursement policies and increased affordability of the patient population in the U.S. In The Europe region in last few years, the cases of oral disorders such as dental caries, dental decay and dental lesions among children and adults has increased at a considerable rate. This increase in prevalence of oral disorder contributing to the demand of tooth filling material in Europe.
Asia Pacific tooth filling materials market is estimated to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast timeframe. This is mainly attributed to the high population growth rate in key countries, such as India and China. The trend in India indicates an increase in oral health problems especially dental caries. Proper and advanced oral healthcare treatment, growing dental caries prevalence trends, and growing awareness regarding oral health are the factors expected to contribute to the growth of APAC dental filling material market.
Some of the leaders driving the global dental filling material market include SDI limited, Coltene Whaledent, Ivoclar Vivadent, Kerr Corporation, DENTSPLY International, Kuraray Noritake Dental, Shofu dental and VOCO GmbH. The companies mainly focus on important strategic decisions such as increase in the research and development investment and expansion of product portfolio.
