Intramucosal implants are type of dental implants made with either titanium or zirconium, attached to palatal side of partial or complete denture in mouth region. They require proper thickness of palatal to get attached hence they are inserted in maxilla region of mouth, as it is thick. Intramucosal implants are relatively easy, quick, minimally invasive, and reversible to use.
Intramucosal Implants Market Driver
Use of innovative ideas such as CAD/CAM technology in the field of dentistry is expected to boost growth of the intramucosal’ implants market. For instance, according to the Journal of Interdisciplinary Dentistry 2015, use of Computer Aided Drug Designing (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) in the dentistry offers extremely aesthetic, biocompatible intramucosal implants by using materials such as metal alloys, composites, titanium, and polyether ether ketone, and milling machines that restore implants to proper position.
Moreover, increasing use of robotics to assist dentists with procedures such as root canal surgery and orthodontic operations are expected to increase adoption of intramuscular implants. For instance, in September 2017, a robot dentist performed first successful autonomous dental implant surgery by fitting two new teeth into a woman’s mouth in China. The robot was developed by joined collaboration of the Fourth Military Medical University’s affiliated Stomatological Hospital and the Robotic Institute at Beihang University.
Intramucosal Implants Market Restraint
The high cost of intramucosal implants is expected to restrain growth of the market. For instance, according to Dental Associates, in January 2018, the cost for a single implant is US$ 4,817 without bone grafting and US$ 5,557 with bone grafting.
Intramucosal Implants Market – Regional Analysis
On the basis of region, the global intramucosal implants market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.
North America is expected to hold dominant position in the global intramucosal implants market, owing to marginal expansions of key players in the dental field. For instance, in July 2018, Danaher Corporation, U.S. based company, announced to expand its dental section into independent, public trading company DentalCo, to maximize dental business innovation in developing implants, services, and solutions to customers.
Asia Pacific is projected to witness significant growth in the intramucosal implants market, owing to increasing awareness regarding use of dental implants through conferences. For instance, in February 2018, Asia Congress of Oral Implantology was held in India to engross educationalists, practitioners and researchers in eminent presentations on the technological, scientific and clinical advancements in the oral implantology sector.
Moreover, in March 2018, Dental Society of Implant Dentistry Center held first Ultra-Short conference specialized in comprehensive dental Implantology on short dental implants in India. Short dental implants allow universal brace positioning and has also been proven bacterially sealed.
