Global Dentures Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Impact on Denture Manufacturing and it’s Market Demand.
Supply chain and manufacturing activities of dentures and dental products in India, Italy, Spain, U.K., and the U.S. have been disrupted due to lockdowns implemented by governments in the past few months, while countries such as Brazil, France, Russia, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, and others are facing problems with regards to transportation of raw materials used for manufacturing of dentures.
The coronavirus or COVID-19 outbreak that started from Wuhan, China has spread across continents, affecting various industries globally. Supply of key raw materials for dentures such as 3D resins and others has been severely disrupted due to forced quarantine, and lack of labour and raw materials. As the link between regional warehouses is not smooth, the transportation of raw materials between regions cannot be carried out successfully. This shortage of raw materials and components have affected the supply chain and manufacturing of dentures and thus affecting the global dentures market.
Moreover, according to the Krager Journal factsheet 2019, patients infected with the COVID-19 infection are having potential risk of getting affected by the oral candidiasis, therefore hospitalized COVID-19 patients with dentures, dental implants are suggested to follow the strict oral hygiene protocol such as teeth, oral cavity, tongue, and dentures must be cleaned daily with brushes with 0.2% chlorhexidine. Thus, increased risk of C. albicans infection, major candidiasis in COVID-19 patients due to dentures and dental implants is expected to affect demand of dentures in the market.
Global Dentures Market Restraint
Availability of alternatives in the market such as dental implants, overdentures, and dental bridges is expected to hamper the market growth over the forecast period.
For instance, according to the Healthline, a research journal report, the dentures have high maintenance, as compared to the dental implants, as the dentures are needed to kept clean daily by following various procedures such as removing and brushing the denture after eating, the dentures are kept in the water or soaking in special cleaning solution for quite while of time. As the dental implants are similar to the natural teeth’s and require standard dental hygiene for natural teeth such as brushing of teeth’s twice a day.
For instance, according to the Westerville Dental Associates, a dental clinic association in Ohio, U.S., dental implants are the most common and effective alternatives for the dentures, as the dental implants are the titanium fixtures, which are fixed permanently in the jawbone and thus they provide long term stability and durable option than dentures.
