Maryland Bridges with All Ceramic Materials and Single Tooth Implants to Record a Significant Growth Rate in the Near Future
Dental bridges and single- tooth implants are among the most widely used dental restoration products for tooth loss. Presently, single-tooth implants are more widely used as compared to dental bridges, accounting for a share of ~73% of the global single-tooth implants and dental bridges market.
Though there are several options for tooth replacements, a single-tooth implant provides various advantages over other forms. It helps in tooth replacement without affecting the adjacent tooth. It also helps reduce the chances of the jaw bone getting reabsorbed, a phenomenon common with the use of bridges. Moreover, the ease of use and better aesthetics of single-tooth implants as opposed to bridges add on to the advantages of single-tooth implants. Europe is the major market for single-tooth implants. A majority of the demand for single-tooth implants in the European region is from Switzerland, France, and Germany. This is mainly attributed to higher acceptance of single-tooth implants in these countries, greater adoption of high-quality dental care, and patientsí willingness to incur higher expenses for dental procedures. The growth in medical tourism in countries such as Hungary and Spain are also expected to contribute to the overall growth of the single-tooth implants market in the European region.
Among the type of dental bridges that are used, the adoption of Maryland bridges is expected to increase significantly in the near future. Maryland bridges are minimally invasive in nature and get attached to the surrounding teeth through their metal wings. These bridges, due to their aesthetic appeal as compared to other bridges, can be used for front as well as back teeth. Moreover, less procedural time required for these bridges and the requirement of minimal adjustments to the enamel of the abutment teeth further propels the adoption of these bridges.
Dental bridges may are made of different types of materials such as all ceramic, metals, and porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM). Though most dental bridges are made of PFM, the market is gradually shifting toward greater utilization of ceramic in dental bridges, with increasing preference for zirconium bridges. This is mainly due to several benefits such as better aesthetics and lower fracture rates zirconium crowns offer. Moreover, these materials are also widely used in CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) technology, which has been increasingly adopted by the dental industry. The usage of this technology has not only aided in preparation of better custom-made bridges, but also in the reduction of the overall chair time for patients. Thus, all ceramic bridges are expected to witness high growth during the forecast period.
