North America Dental Equipment Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization declared it as a public health emergency, on January 30, 2020.

COVID-19 can affect the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting production and demand, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets.

Furthermore, the decrease in patients visiting dental clinics is a major challenge faced during the pandemic. For instance, according to the report published by the American Dental Association (ADA), in April 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the dental care industry in the U.S. Over three-fourths of dental practices in the U.S. saw only emergency patients, and another 18% of the dental practices were completely stopped. Moreover, according to the same source, there was a 66% reduction in the U.S. dental spending in 2020, compared to pre-pandemic projections, which could lead to a 32% reduction in dental spending in 2021.

Oral diseases are a major public health problem in today’s era. For instance, according to an article published in ‘Journal of Dental Research’, in 2017, the most common oral health condition is untreated dental caries (tooth decay) in permanent teeth. Some of the common oral health issues include periodontal diseases, dental caries (tooth decay), oral cancers, cleft lip and palate, oral manifestations of HIV, oro-dental trauma, and noma (severe gangrenous disease starting in the mouth, mostly affecting children). Most oral health issues can be prevented and treated during their early stages. The dental equipment industry is one of the fastest growing areas for technicians and biomedical engineers. Dental equipment is a tool used by dental professionals to identify and treat various dental conditions. These tools are used to diagnose, examine, manipulate, and treat surrounding oral structures.
