Dental 3D Printing Market

Dental 3D printing market includes services, equipment, and materials used for the creation of dental prostheses, appliances, models, and surgical guides through utilizing the three-dimensional printing technology. Owing to the growing incidence of dental issues like tooth decay, periodontal disease, and dental injuries, there is a rising need for dental restorations and prosthetics.

According to the February 2023 article from Institute of Health Policy and Leadership, the incidence of oral diseases has risen by 50% over the last three decades. This has significantly increased the demand for dental consumables such as crowns, dentures, bridges, and implants. 3D printing technology has significantly aided dental practices in meeting this rising demand by providing efficient and cost-effective methods for producing dental consumables, thereby driving the revenue growth in the market.

Dental 3D printing Market Trends

  • The shift from conventional analog techniques to digital dentistry has played a crucial role in driving the adoption of 3D printing within the dental sector. Digital processes such as intraoral scanning, dental computer-aided designing/computer-aided manufacturing (dental CAD/CAM) have streamlined the incorporation of 3D printing solutions across a wide range of dental procedures. Moreover, the introduction of novel biocompatible materials is helping the manufacturers to broaden the array of choices for dental 3D printing, enhancing the aesthetics, strength, and longevity of dental restorations, which has helped in driving the demand for dental 3D printing.
