The global dental caries treatment market was valued at US$ 6,302.2 Mn in 2021 and is forecast to reach a value of US$ 8,691.8 Mn by 2028 at a CAGR of 4.8% between 2022 and 2028. The global dental caries treatment market is experiencing strong growth due to the increasing geriatric population suffering from dental caries. Moreover, increasing incidence or prevalence of dental caries around the world and increase in focus on the development of novel dental caries treatment is expected to boost the growth of the market. However, factors such as lack of knowledge about dental caries treatment and high failure rate of endodontic treatment are expected to hamper growth of the global dental caries treatment market.

Global Dental Caries Treatment Market: Regional Insights

Based on geography, the global dental caries treatment market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

Among regions, North America is expected to gain highest share in the market over the forecast period owing to the increase in geriatric population and increase in awareness about dental care or hygiene in this region, especially in the United States. For instance, cavities, also known as tooth decay or caries, are one of the biggest health treatment needs. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), among adults aged 20 and older, about 90% have had at least one cavity, and 1 in 4 adults aged 20 to 64 currently has at least one cavity. This in turn is expected to increase demand for dental caries treatment in this region.

Asia Pacific is also expected to witness significant growth in the global dental caries treatment market due to the growing geriatric population, favorable government policies, and increase in demand for dental procedures in the region. For instance, according to the Ministry of Health And Family Welfare (India), dental caries affects over 60% and periodontal disease over 85% of the Indian population, the country is considered the world capital for oral cancer. Thus, there is an increase in demand for dental caries treatment in the region.

Global Dental Caries Treatment Market Drivers:

Increasing incidence or prevalence of dental caries around the world is expected to propel the growth of the global dental caries treatment market over the forecast period. The World Health Organization (WHO) lists dental caries as the 3rd most common chronic, non-infectious disease after cancer and cardiovascular disease. Worldwide, over 2 billion people suffer from caries of permanent teeth and over 520 million children suffer from caries of primary teeth. Thus, with the increase in incidence or prevalence of dental caries, the demand for dental caries treatment is also increasing with a rapid pace, worldwide.

Increase in focus on the development of novel dental caries treatment is expected to boost the growth of the global dental caries treatment market over the forecast period. For instance, with the increase in prevalence of dental caries and growing geriatric population, demand for dental caries treatment is also increasing worldwide. In January 2020, Pearl announced the launch of the Scan Clarity Score. The Scan Clarity Score addresses the issue of working with low-quality intraoral scans by examining the margin clarity for each patient for dental restorations. It allows dental labs to score and bucket each patient scan based on margin clarity.

Global Dental Caries Treatment Market Opportunities:

Rapid growth in the geriatric population across the globe is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the global dental caries treatment market. For instance, the elderly are at risk for root caries due to dentures, lack of dexterity, a shift from complex to the simple sugars, and poor oral hygiene. According to the American Dental Association, older adults are at increased risk for root caries because of both increased gingival recession that exposes root surfaces and increased use of medicines that produce xerostomia. More than 50% of individuals aged 75 years and older have root caries affecting at least one tooth.

Technological advancements in dentistry are expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the dental caries treatment market. For instance, in May 2019, Pearl raised US$ 11 million to analyze dental scans with AI (Artificial Intelligence). It will streamline tedious, repetitive tasks, enhance profitability across dentistry, and, most importantly, it will improve the standard of care by validating diagnoses, removing large elements of uncertainty from the dental equation, according the company.

Global Dental Caries Treatment Market Trends:

The use of advanced technologies, such as robotics, in dentistry, is expected to boost the growth of the market. Moreover, availability of open-source control systems, compliant robot systems, and the design of dentistry-specific robot technology may facilitate the process of technological development in the future. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period

With the increase in focus on oral health, increase in awareness among people about the oral hygiene, growing geriatric population, and continuous research in field, the demand for dental caries treatment is also expected to increase in during the forecast period. This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period, as there are tremendous opportunities in the market.

Global Dental Caries Treatment Market Restraints:

Lack of knowledge or lack of awareness regarding dental caries treatment is expected to hinder growth of the global dental caries treatment market. Poor oral health is a contributing factor for many wider conditions and diseases. To reduce dental disease, people need to be more informed and educated about tooth decay. Dental professionals have an important part to play in the oral education of patients inside and outside of the practice setting.

High failure rate of endodontic treatment is expected to hamper the growth of the dental caries treatment market. For instance, the most common problem during the treatment of dental caries is endodontic failure. With increasing number of endodontic treatments being done each day, it has become imperative to avoid/minimize most fundamental of reasons leading to endodontic failure. Various studies have also been conducted to demonstrate the reasons for the high failure rate endodontic treatment.

*Definition: Tooth decay (tooth caries) is damage to tooth that can occur when decay-causing bacteria in the mouth create acids that attack the tooth surface or enamel. This can lead to a cavity. If left untreated, it can cause pain, infection, and even tooth loss. Therefore, there is an increase in demand for dental caries treatment worldwide.

Dental caries (tooth decay or dental cavities) is the most common noncommunicable disease worldwide. It is the most prevalent chronic disease in both children and adults, even though it is largely preventable. Severe dental caries affects general health and often causes pain and infection, which may result in tooth extraction. If left untreated, it can cause pain, infection, and even tooth loss. Advanced stages of dental caries may lead to pain, infection, and abscesses, or even sepsis. There are basically four types of treatment to deal with dental caries and they are fillings, crowns, root canal, and tooth extraction.
