Over the last decade, dental imaging devices have become a trusted tool to help dentists diagnose and treat their patients. Preventative care is directly linked to dental imaging because early detection of oral cancer is possible with these devices. This would prevent ineffective treatments that are often used when cancer is identified late in the disease process. Dental imaging devices can also detect cavities in teeth, fractures in teeth, worn roots, gum disease, root canal treatment, and other problems in our mouths.
Dental imaging devices allow for complete visualization of the dental cavity and other problems to be detected and monitored. It is easy to see an increase in dental problems across all age groups. It is leading to increased use of dental imaging equipment to detect problems early. A small camera is mounted on dental imaging devices to provide visual images of the inner corners and jaws in order to detect small cavities.
These devices allow dental professionals to identify and treat the problem, then determine the best treatment based on the patient’s needs. Dental imaging devices are driven by the rise in geriatric populations, high disposable income, increased cosmetic awareness, and technological advancements. North America will be the most represented region over the forecast period due to its high-end technology and huge demand.
Functions of dental imaging devices:
When it comes to the health and wellness of your teeth, dental imaging devices come in handy. These types of products allow dentists to detect diseases and problems before they become a severe issues. Dental imaging devices can range from x-rays to intraoral scanners. CT scans are typically used for detecting the anatomy and bone structure of a person’s mouth, including their jaws, skull, palate, teeth, and nerves.
Benefits of using dental imaging devices:
Dental imaging devices have been proven to help dentists diagnose dental problems. It’s been found that those who use these devices for diagnosis have a better chance of providing their patients with an accurate diagnosis and course of treatment.
Due to their high performance, Dental Imaging Devices account for the largest portion of the extra-oral radiography segment. Dental imaging devices can detect dental problems early in life, helping to reduce the risk of developing dental problems.
Dental Imaging Devices was valued at US$ 2,353.4 Mn in 2021 and is expected to reach US$ 4,390.9 Mn by 2031 at a CAGR of 6.4%.
Other factors that can be expected to boost the growth of dental imaging equipment include the various government initiatives to raise awareness and increase disposable income. Dental imaging devices are expected to grow due to the growing geriatric population, as well as increasing dental implant or surgery growth. The digital imaging process has become easier and faster than traditional dental imaging. This also offers options for the professionals like image storage and retrievals, as well as picture manipulations. These options are expected to help in the growth of dental imaging equipment.
CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography), which emits high radiations, can have a negative impact on patients’ health if they are not treated with care. Professional practice is required to use these devices. The industry has fewer experts, which reduces the adoption of cone-beam computed Tomography and restricts the growth of dental imaging equipment.
There are strict regulations in certain areas regarding X-rays and the risk of developing cancer in young people due to exposure to ionizing radiation. These factors could hinder the growth of Dental Imaging Devices. The segment can be divided by product type into Intraoral Xray Systems, Intraoral Plate Scanner ExtraoralX-ray Systems, and others. During the forecast period, the largest share of the market will be held by Extraoral X-ray Systems.
Dental imaging devices such as intraoral cameras and panoramic x-rays provide dentists with a less invasive way to diagnose disease and detect abnormalities in the patient’s mouth. The camera provides a detailed, 3D view of the patient’s throat and teeth. Intraoral cameras also enable the dentist to see every corner and crevice of the patient’s mouth, including any cavities or other problematic areas.
