Follow us on LinkedIn – Dental caries or tooth decay is one of the major issues for public healthcare systems in most countries across the world, with a significant proportion of the world’s adult population and school-going children suffering from dental caries. Rapidly changing lifestyles and dietary habits and low awareness about oral care and hygiene are increasing the prevalence of dental caries, specifically among children of low- and mid-income nations. With the incidence of dental caries on the rise, preventive care is emerging as one of the most widely used approaches in dental practice to prevent tooth loss. Preventive dentistry is also aimed at cutting down the need for dental treatment by adopting preventive measures, thereby reducing costs associated with procedures such as extractions and fillings. Growing awareness about the possible implications of untreated dental caries is also contributing to the rising demand for preventive dental care products such as fluoride rinses, fluoride dentifrice, and dental sealants, among others.
Future growth in the dental preventive supplies market will be driven by increasing risk of dental caries and tooth decays among people of all age groups, and the shifting focus of dental professionals from treatment to prevention. Demand for preventive dental supplies is being bolstered by the rising emphasis on aesthetics, shrinking dentist-patient ratios, and availability of greater insurance coverage. The market is also expected to benefit from the continuous developments with respect to products and materials which are aimed at ensuring long-term benefits to patients.
Dental sealants are useful in reducing occurrence of cavities, particularly among children and teenagers, as they create a protective layer preventing erosion of teeth by acids, bacteria, and sugars released from food particles being consumed. Dental sealants have been acknowledged for their role in the treatment of dental problems by the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as various dental professionals the world over. However, dental sealants are being under-utilized due to the lack of adequate reimbursement coverage for the procedures, lack of encouragement to government/school backed initiatives, and difficulties faced in placing sealants in case of partially erupted teeth. Fluoride is another preventive product that is capable of protecting as well as strengthening the tooth’s enamel, and hence cutting down the risk of tooth decay. Given its effectiveness in preventing tooth decay, fluoride use has made widespread gains in developed markets.
