The dental preventive supplies market has been forecast to reach a total of $458.8 million by 2018, driven by the rising need to prevent dental caries and gum diseases among children and adults.
The development of innovative products and materials and strong demand from developing regions also bode well for market growth.
Preventive dental care is emerging as one of the most widely used approaches in dental practice. By adopting various oral hygiene products and dental treatments, occurrence of oral problems such as tooth decay and gum disease can be brought down significantly.
Preventive dentistry is also aimed at cutting down the need for dental treatment by adopting preventive measures, thereby reducing costs associated with procedures such as extractions and fillings.
Dental preventive products market is significantly influenced by the economic environment, socioeconomic background of patients, and discretionary spending levels.
The increasing awareness regarding the likely implications of untreated dental caries is also contributing to the rising demand for preventive dental care products such as fluoride gels, prophylactic pastes, and dental sealants, among others.
Furthermore, consumer emphasis on aesthetics and availability of greater insurance coverage are fuelling sales of preventive dental supplies.
According to a recent market report, 'Dental Preventive Supplies: A Global Strategic Business Report,' the United States represents the single largest market worldwide.
The need to cut down costs incurred in the treatment of dental conditions among children is driving the government to encourage dental preventive measures among children, particularly from low-income households. Among the strategies employed is the use of dental sealants on the surfaces of molars in children.
