The use of ultrasonic devices has drastically improved the practice of dental scaling and periodontal debridement. Debridement is performed with hand instruments or mechanical instruments, usually with ultrasonic scalers. Ultrasonic scalers have a vibrating tip, which is gently held against the root surface of the tooth, in order to remove calculus, staining, and oral biofilm. Ultrasound dental scalers offer advantages such as less treatment time, easy removal of dental plaques, less chances of injury, and light weight.
Ultrasonic Dental Scalers Market Drivers
Advancements in technology in ultrasonic dental scalers is expected to drive growth of the ultrasonic dental scalers market. For instance, in September 2018, Canada-based inventor has developed a new dental silencer to lower the sound arising from use of ultrasonic scalers. The new device helps in reducing fear, anxiety, and injuries, and it is a compact, portable, and cost-effective device and this device is submitted to Invent Help for licensing or sale to manufacturers.
Ultrasonic Dental Scalers Market Restraints
Negative effects associated with the use of ultrasonic dental scalers is expected to hamper growth of the market. For instance, according to an article published in National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) February 2015, the use of ultrasonic scalers produces an increase in temperature and this heat may be due to the friction between scalers and tooth. Moreover, atrial and ventricular pacing in patients with cardiac devices such as pacemaker are affected by electromagnetic interference produced by ultrasonic scalers. Hence, these factors have led to less adoption of ultrasonic dental scalers by dentists, thereby restraining growth of the market.
Ultrasonic Dental Scalers Market – Regional Analysis
On the basis of region, the global ultrasonic dental scalers market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.
North America region is expected to hold dominant position in the ultrasonic dental scalers market, owing to increasing incidence of periodontal diseases and growing use of dental scalers for treatment of such diseases. For instance, according to an article published in Journal of Dental Hygiene in April 2016, use of ultrasonic dental scalers in treating periodontal diseases and for managing clinical outcomes of diseases is increased in U.S due to its advantages.
Europe is also expected to witness remarkable growth in the global ultrasonic dental scalers market due to advancements in dental cleaning process. For instance, according to University of Birmingham March 2016, in London, researchers are studying for efficient ways to clean dental plaques. Researchers have observed that formation of tiny bubbles around the head of ultrasonic scalers to remove built-up plaque, which aids in cleaning process of teeth.
