LONDON--()--According to the latest market study released by Technavio, the global dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 12% during the forecast period.

This research report titled ‘Global Dental Cone Beam Computed Tomography Market 2016-2020’ provides an in-depth analysis of the market in terms of revenue and emerging market trends. This market research report also includes up to date analysis and forecasts for various market segments and all geographical regions.

CBCT is a medical imaging technique used for complex dental treatments. It helps dentists evaluate endodontic and periodontics health for evaluation and surgery. It is a relatively new technology, mainly used for various dental specialty applications. CBCT has simple functionality and ensures low exposure to radiation, which makes this a key technology to replace traditional CT scanners.

A growing number of dentists and specialty hospitals are adopting CBCT imaging techniques to increase professional competency. Combined with the increased acceptance of the technique by the public, this procedure is becoming standard for both orthodontic and endodontic cases. Confidence in the technology, presence of quality dentists, and well equipped dental clinics are driving more patients to opt for necessary corrective and cosmetic procedures. The combination of these three key factors are driving the market to growth.

Based on application, the report categorizes the global dental CBCT market into the following segments:

  • CBCT in dental implants
  • Dental CBCT in orthodontic
  • Dental CBCT in endodontics and periodontics
  • Dental CBCT in dental surgeries

The top three revenue generating application segments in the global dental CBCT market are discussed below:

CBCT in dental implants

Dental implants are metal products used provide a stable support to artificial teeth, dentures, and bridges. There is a growing need for quality 3D imaging software to get a proper understanding of the oral structure to provide better quality implants. Studies have found that CBCT combined with 2D radiography could help complex dental implant procedures, where a 3D image helps to understand the exact oral structure”, says Srinivas Sashidhar, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for medical imaging research.

CBCT imaging costs for dental implantation procedures can be around USD 350 – USD 600. While this brings in good revenue, vendors are looking to reduce this cost to attract more customers. Partnership with dental laboratories and direct sales and distribution of CBCT is a major business strategy used by companies. This can enable better treatment planning at a lower cost, thus adding more volume to the market.

Dental CBCT in orthodontic

Orthodontics is a segment of specialized dental treatment which emphasizes on proper alignment and positioning of the jaw and teeth. Orthodontic surgeons use medical imaging tools like X-ray and CBCT to determine exact structure of jawline and determine type of treatment required. Treatment can involve fixed orthodontic devices like braces or fixed space maintainers, or removable orthodontic devices like aligners, splints, and palatal expanders.

To offer the best imaging technology, companies are forming partnerships with companies specializing in developing high-quality 3D digital imaging. These partnerships have resulted in a single equipment capable of CT, panoramic, and cephalometric imaging. Solutions like this provides a three-in-one flexible diagnostic option, which is preferred over single function equipment and accepted by many customers.

Dental CBCT in endodontics and periodontics

Endodontics refer to dental procedures related to root canals while periodontics refers to study and treatment of infection around gums and cementum of teeth. Oral and dental hygiene is very important to maintain good endodontic and periodontics health. CBCT is increasingly being incorporated to diagnose and treat dental conditions. There is an increasing number of private and public dental clinics in China, which treat endodontic and periodontics cases using CBCT. In the US, more than 15 million root canals are performed every year.

To further penetrate the market, companies are either conducting CBCT webinars or participating in various conferences to increase more skilled professionals in the market. This will push for mainstream use of CBCT for endodontics by specialized dental clinics will help in the market growth”, says Srinivas.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Carestream Health
  • Dentsply Sirona
  • Danaher
