Mercury-free dental implants are made from zirconia, ceramic or titanium which is a bio-compatible, ceramic material.  Zirconia completely assimilates (osseointegrates) into jaw bone without any signs of inflammation or foreign body rejection. Titanium implants are gray in color.  of the titanium implants. Zirconia is white and therefore will not show thru thin tissue. Dental prosthetics are implants or dental fillers that facilitate bone formation and help in wound healing procedures in dental cavities due to tooth loss or tooth decays. Over the past years, more ceramic components have been incorporated into dentistry due to their clinically proven strength and aesthetic benefits. All-ceramic crowns and implant abutments in treatment plans are in trend, but the implant itself is now available in a one-piece design made from biocompatible zirconia.

Mercury-free dental implants materials market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

The spread of coronavirus is negatively impacting the sales of mercury-free dental implant materials which are majorly used for treatment of different dental diseases. The dental procedures generally require close contact with the patient’s oral cavity, saliva, blood, and respiratory tract secretions which can increase the risk of cross-infection. Furthermore, in the current situation, dental clinics will remain closed in containment zones, however they can continue to provide tele triage. Patients in this zone can seek ambulance services to travel to the nearby COVID dental facility. Dental operations are restricted to emergency and urgent treatment procedures only.

The mercury-free dental implants materials market is estimated to be valued at US$ 10.3 billion in 2020 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period (2020-2027).

The increasing prevalence of dental diseases and product approvals are expected to boost growth of the mercury-free dental implants materials market

The increasing incidence and prevalence of dental diseases such as dental carries is expected to boost the mercury-free dental implant materials market growth during the forecast period. According to FDI World Dental Federation’s Oral Health Atlas published in 2015, oral disease affects around 3.9 billion people worldwide, with untreated tooth decay impacting around 44.0% of the world’s population. The reason for poor oral health is unhealthy diet, tobacco use, excess alcohol consumption, and poor oral hygiene which lead to various dental issues such as cavities, gum disease (gingivitis), periodontitis, sensitive teeth, and others.

Furthermore, the mercury-free dental implants materials market is expected to witness significant growth in the near future owing to launch of new products. For instance, in June 2018, Nobel Biocare announced the launch of new NobelPearl ceramic implants at EuroPerio9 (Congress of European Federation of Periodontology) in Amsterdam. NobelPearl offers greater restorative flexibility compared to one-piece or cemented ceramic implants owing to the two-piece, reversible cement-free internal connection. The Inter-X internal connection is specifically designed for ceramic implants.  

Mercury-free dental implants materials market - Restraints

High treatment costs and lack of insurance coverage dissuades majority of the population from visiting a dentist even in developed economies such as the U.S. and U.K. which is expected to hamper the mercury-free dental implants material market growth. For instance, according to 2016 statistics of the Oral Health Foundation, 88% of the adult population in the U.K. does not have dental insurance and around 63% of the adults prefer visiting National Health Service (NHS) dentists rather than private dentists due to high costs associated with the later. Furthermore, according to the New National Survey published in the American Dental Association in 2014, 40.2% of adults in the U.S. said that they would forego dental care due to high costs associated with it.

Mercury-free dental implants materials market – Regional Analysis

North America accounted for the largest share in the mercury-free dental implants materials market in 2019 owing to increasing tooth loss among adult and geriatric population. This has resulted in an increase in the number of dental implantation procedures in the region. For instance, according to statistics by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry in August 2018, in 2017. Moreover, around 500,000 people undergo dental implantation treatment each year in the U.S. Thus, the rising number of dental implant procedures is expected to drive the mercury-free dental implant material market growth during the forecast period.

Furthermore, between key players are expected to accelerate the Asia Pacific mercury-free dental implants materials market growth in the near future. For instance, in August 2016, Institut Straumann AG announced that they have acquired Equinox, a fast-growing dental implant company with a leading position in the value segment in India. The acquisition enabled Straumann to enter the emerging Indian market where the need for reliable, effective and affordable tooth replacement solutions is huge. Straumann will provide Equinox with the resources to sustain its development and dynamic growth in the value segment and will benefit from Equinox’ networks, infrastructure and local expertise to establish Straumann’s premium brand in India.

Mercury-free dental implants materials market - Competitive Landscape

Key players operating in the mercury-free dental implants materials market are Dentsply Sirona, Institut Straumann AG, Coltene Group, VITA Zahnfabrik, Upcera Dental Co. Ltd., Aidite Technology Co. Ltd., Huge Dental Material Co., Ltd., Kuraray Noritake Dental Inc., Zirkonzahn GmBH, 3M, VOCO GmBH, Danaher Corporation, Ivoclar Vivadent AG, Mitsui Chemicals, Inc., GC Corporation, Ultradent Products Inc., and SHOFU Dental Corporation.

Mercury-free dental implants are tooth root replacements, capped with a ceramic dental crown. The crown (replacement tooth) is connected to the implant with an abutment. Zirconia implants are new implants in the dental implant field. In the U.S., dentists have been using Zirconia for implants since 2007 (Europe since the late 1980’s) while dentists have been using Titanium for dental implants since the 1960’s. Both materials are biocompatible offering high acceptance rates with the body promoting osseointegration which means bone can grow around the implant material just as it does around natural tooth roots. Currently, most U.S. FDA approved Zirconia implants are one piece. This means that the synthetic tooth root and the abutment are connected whereas they are two pieces with Titanium dental implants giving the dentist more control over a few elements of the entire implant placement process.

Market Dynamics

The increasing prevalence of dental carries because of poor oral hygiene is expected to contribute to the mercury-free dental implants materials market growth during the forecast period. For instance, according to the Global Burden of Disease Study, in 2016, around 3.58 billion people, globally, were affected with dental caries (tooth decay) in permanent teeth. Moreover, according to the WHO, in 2012, around 60-90% of children had dental cavities and around 15-20% of the population in the age group of 35-44 suffered from severe periodontal disease globally. The factors leading to oral health diseases include unhealthy diet, tobacco use, excess alcohol consumption, and poor oral hygiene.

However, growth of the global mercury-free dental implant market is expected to be hampered during the forecast period owing to product recalls of dental implants. For instance, in November 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a notice to recall Tapered Screw-Vent MTX Model TSVTB11 developed by Zimmer Dental Inc. dental implant vial caps in the recalled implant lot. Distribution of this product in the U.S., Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, and Spain has been stopped after the announcement of this recall.
