Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that function to support a restoration put in place for a missing tooth or teeth and additionally aid in the prevention of jaw bone loss. They are typically offered in the form of a metal-based material, such as titanium, and are inserted into the jaw to replace missing teeth. They can be described based on their shape and method of attachment to the jaw. Ultimately, dental implants serve to support restorative products such as crowns, bridges and dentures.
Dental implant treatments consist of one-stage, two-stage and immediate loading procedures. Dental implants are available in a variety of forms including tapered or parallel wall shapes. In addition, they are offered with internal or external connections, or manufactured as a single unit.
In 2014, the overall dental implant market, including dental implants, final abutments, dental implant instrument kits, treatment planning software and surgical guides, generated revenues exceeding
$900 million. These implant markets are limited by shifting consumer preferences. Growing price sensitivity has changed the value and discount segments of the implant market. The instrument kit and treatment planning software markets have been largely restricted; these products are now typically heavily discounted and bundled with other product sales in order to retain consumers. To mitigate the effects of the recent economic recession, market leaders are altering their sales strategies to cater to the new, growing pool of general practitioners entering the market.
