Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global dental lasers market:
- Increase in prevalence of orthodontic and periodontal diseases

- Growing demand for laser dentistry and painless treatment
Increase in prevalence of orthodontic and periodontal diseases
The rise in oral disease has propelled the demand for dental and oral care. Prevalence of periodontal disease such as bleeding in gums is prevalent among adults and pediatric population. According to the CDC, around 47% of adults in the age group of 30 years and above have some form of periodontal disease and nearly 30% of individuals aged 65-75 years are devoid of natural teeth. Other percentages in the report show a significant portion of the global population is affected by different types of oral diseases.
Barath Palada, a lead orthopedics and medical devices research analyst at Technavio, says, “Some of the major causes of periodontal diseases are smoking, inadequate oral hygiene, diabetes, and unawareness about dental health. Many people in urban areas visit dental clinics due to the awareness of dental diseases and related services offered, which increases the demand for improved dental procedures.”
Increased demand for oral care
Governments and private organizations have started taking initiatives for creating awareness on oral health as oral health is linked to heart disease, low birth weight, and transmission of flu. Because of the changing habits of the customers over time, oral care and dental hygiene have become a major concern.
“For effectively controlling oral health risks, initiatives such as building oral health policies has been taken up by WHO. Some of its initiatives include developing community-based projects for the prevention of oral and dental diseases. These initiatives are encouraging national health authorities to implement efficient fluoride programs to prevent periodontal problems, dental caries, and provide technical support to various countries to integrate dental health into public health and strengthen their dental health systems,” adds Barath.
Growing demand for laser dentistry and painless treatment
There is a gradual change in the trend for oral treatment from the conventional to advanced treatment. This is due to the increased prevalence of oral problem globally. Advanced dental care services, such as cosmetic dentistry and laser dentistry have overpowered the traditional dental services. The popularity of laser technology in dentistry is booming among patients as well as the oral care specialists. This painless technology has gained popularity with increasing demand for laser dentistry for extraction of tooth, orthodontics, and periodontal decay.
