Major players in the therapeutic dental equipment market are AMD LASERS LLC, BIOLASE Technology, Inc, Danaher Corporation, Dentsply Sirona and Planmeca Group.

The global therapeutic dental equipment market is expected to decline from $0.2 billion in 2019 to $0.1 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -21.3%. The decline is mainly due to COVID-19 outbreak and the measures to contain it. Several dental care facilities in affected countries have been completely closed or have been only providing minimal treatment for emergency cases. The restrictions on non-essential medical services including dental services coupled with slowed production of dental equipment and supplies due to extended factory closures in various countries is contributing to the markable decline in the market growth. The market is then expected to recover and grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2021 and reach $0.2 billion in 2023.

The therapeutic dental equipment market consists of sales of therapeutic dental equipment and related services. Therapeutic dental equipment is used for the treatment of dental diseases. The key products include dental lasers, soft-tissue laser systems, diode lasers systems, CO2 lasers systems, YAG laser systems, and all-tissue (hard/soft) laser systems.

The therapeutic dental equipment market has been geographically segmented into North America, Western Europe, Asia-Pacific, Eastern Europe, South America and Middle East & Africa. The North American market is the largest market for therapeutic dental equipment and is expected to continue to be the largest segment during the forecast period.

In the UK, institutions employing laser for dental surgeries must register with the Care Quality Commission and the National Minimum Standards and Regulations for Independent Health Care 2002 states all the standards (C1 to C32) that are a mandate to all hospitals and dental clinics that use lasers. According to the core standards, the operators must have patient guide explaining the benefits and risk of laser, statement of treatment policy, management and personnel, a complaints procedure, premises, facilities and equipment management, risk management procedure and research strategy in place.

The painless procedure using dental lasers have complications that affect the tooth and the surrounding dental region. Tooth surface, dental pulp, subcutaneous and submucosal layers are some of the regions prone to adverse effects during the use of dental lasers. Necrosis of the pulp, bone resorption, hypo/hyperpigmentation, scarring among others are the complications associated with dental lasers. In addition to this, the micro-hardness of the tooth walls is also affected, resulting in surface cracks of the tooth. Due to these effects, the growth of the therapeutic dental market is expected to be restrained in the future.

There have been continuous technological advancements in dental lasers that is resulting in a positive impact on the growth of the dental laser industry. For instance, UltraDent Products, Inc. in 2016 launched the first dual-wavelength soft tissue diode laser named the Gemini 810 + 980 diode laser, this tool is used in intraoral and soft tissue procedures. Development of such new technologically advanced devices will augment industry growth.

In the USA, manufacturers of laser devices in the medical device industry must comply with Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). As per the Title 21 Code of Federal Regulation, the performance standard and specific purpose of the laser product must also be mentioned along with other records on calibration that are provided to the customers.

Daheng Group Inc. recalled its Diode Laser Therapy System and Dental Laser Therapy System as it failed to comply with 21 CFR 1040.11 and did not provide calibration procedures to purchasers.

The changing lifestyles and unhealthy habits of people has increased the instances of oral disease & has increased the demand for dental and oral care. The major lifestyle changes that has stimulated periodontal diseases include smoking, inadequate oral hygiene, and unawareness about dental health. Diabetes is also one of the major reason for oral diseases. With increasing diabetic population, which is estimated to rise by 154% (415 million in 2015 to 642 million in 2040), the need for periodontal care is expected to rise. These lifestyle change along with rising diabetes prevalence are expected to increase the demand for dental care and surgeries thereby driving the therapeutic dental market.
