Market key trends:


One of the key trends in the dental market is the increasing adoption of dental digital imaging systems and guided dental surgery. 3D dental X-ray imaging and cone beam computed tomography provide high resolution images to accurately diagnose oral health issues. Guided dental implant surgery uses 3D dental scanners and surgical guides for accurately placing and restoring dental implants. This minimizes risks of nerve damage and improves restoration outcomes. Another trend is rising demand for dental lasers for performing non-invasive procedures such as tooth whitening, soft tissue removal and dental wound healing. Dental lasers offer benefits like minimal pain, less bleeding and faster recovery over conventional procedures. Growing focus on dental aesthetics is driving higher usage of dental veneers, crowns and bonding for closing gaps and improving smile appearance.
