The technological advancements in the global dental lasers market are one of the major factors responsible for the growth of the market. Laser systems that were previously bulky are now available in small and portable models and are handy and convenient to use. Some are also available in a structure similar to that of a dental handpiece. Some of the latest models of these devices make use of modern fibre-optic delivery systems.
Dental lasers eliminate the need to use surgical instruments such as handpieces, dental drills, and anaesthetics. Dental treatment using laser ensures less bleeding at the surgical site, less trauma and overall comfort to the patient. Since most of the tedious stages of dental surgery are eliminated, the overall procedural time is also effectively reduced. Key players operational in the dental lasers market are Biolase, KaVo Dental and Sirona Dental Lasers.
Lasers find numerous applications in restorative dentistry, ranging from prevention of dental carries to the multitudinous uses in crown and bridge work. Lasers are also used effectively for sealing pits and fissures. CO2 lasers can remove the organic and inorganic debris found in pits and fissures. Argon and the helium-cadmium lasers are effective in detecting initial caries. Lasers such as Nd:YAG lasers can be used to remove decayed tooth materials.
Low-intensity laser therapy induces analgesic, anti-inflammatory and bio-modulation effects at cellular or molecular levels, with photochemical responses improving tissue healing processes and less post-operative discomfort for patients. In addition, the use of lasers to replace aerosol-producing headpieces in periapical surgery can reduce the risk of contamination of the surgical environment by blood-borne pathogens. The unique properties of laser light pertaining to endodontic surgery are: precision, coagulation, decreased post-operative pain, reduced scarring, and sterilisation of the oral cavity.
In 2015, North America dominated the global dental lasers market. Factors such as increased technological advancements, rise in awareness of oral hygiene, and prevalence of gingivitis, caries and periodontics are the major factors expected to drive the growth of this market.
The rising awareness among people and dentists and cosmetic dentistry in both developing and developed nations due to changing lifestyles and an increased desire to retain natural teeth are some of the major factors fuelling the growth of the global market. Countries such as Germany, China, Brazil and others are the major markets for dental lasers in the respective regions.
