Global Dental Caries Detectors Market Is Estimated To Witness High Growth Owing To Rising Incidence Of Tooth Decay And Increasing Dental Tourism

The global Dental Caries Detectors Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 299.2 Million in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR Of 8.1% over the forecast period 2023-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

Dental caries detectors are instruments used by dental professionals to detect dental caries or caries lesions in patients’ teeth at an early stage. These devices detect the demineralization of tooth enamel and dentin, which occurs before a cavity becomes visually apparent. They help identify teeth at high risk of developing cavities or with the presence of early caries lesions that may otherwise go unnoticed. This allows dentists to treat teeth proactively before any permanent damage occurs. The devices offer advantages like being non-invasive, painless, and providing results quickly. Early detection and treatment of dental caries is important to prevent further progression of the decay into deep cavities and pulp involvement.

Market key trends:

The global dental caries detectors market is witnessing increasing adoption of advanced laser fluorescence-based devices that provide sensitive, objective, and quantitative detection of caries. Laser fluorescence utilizes the natural fluorescence of dental tissues to detect caries lesions. It has emerged as a reliable and effective alternative to visual inspection. Moreover, manufacturers are focusing on developing portable handheld devices for chairside use by dental professionals. This is increasing the adoption of caries detectors in dental clinics. Also, rising awareness about oral healthcare and availability of dental insurance is expected to drive the demand for dental caries detection devices over the forecast period.
