Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with dental implants and prosthetics or replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function normally. Dental implants, also known as fixtures, are the artificial roots that are used in such surgeries. These implants support patients by providing a strong foundation and are used for the treatment of infected teeth or reconstruction of missing teeth.
Prosthetics are often used in combination with dental implants to achieve greater stability and play a significant role in restoring the oral health, functionality, and facial features of a patient.
The dental implants and prosthesis market was valued at USD 9816.4 million in 2019 and is expected to grow with a CAGR of 6.7%.

Increasing Demand for Cosmetic Products Due to Surging Prevalence of Dental Issues
The growing geriatric population and rising prevalence of tooth decay and oral cavity infections, such as periodontitis have driven the demand for dental implants. As reported by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, approximately 3 million people in the U.S. have dental implants and roughly around 500,000 people get these products installed every year.
The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey provides an estimate that approximately around 42% of children aged 2 to 11 years suffer from tooth decay. Thus, there has been an increasing willingness among consumers to adopt dental cosmetics, such as implants and prosthetics, further driving the market growth. Apart from this, the growing innovations and advancements in product features, such as the introduction of a higher quality of materials, biocompatibility, non-allergic nature, and resemblance to the natural tooth, are promoting greater acceptance and adoption of dental implants and prosthetics.
Growing Number of Dental Injuries Because of Accidents
The rising number of road accidents, surging cases of sports-related dental injuries, and growing violence across the globe have surged the prevalence of dental injuries. Surging cases of craniomaxillofacial surgery caused during football, rugby, wrestling, and kickboxing, among others, accelerate the market growth. For instance, a publication in the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA) suggests that 13 to 39% of all dental injuries are caused by sports-related incidents, where 2 to 18% are maxillofacial. As per theWorld Health Organization (WHO), roughly 10 million people are injured or suffer faces disability. Additionally, according to the American Academy for Implant Dentistry, more than 15 million people annually in the U.S. opt for bridge and crown replacements for missing teeth.
The dental implant segment is expected to witness a significant surge during the forecast period, owing to the growing demand for dental implants among patients and dental surgeons, higher acceptance of dental implants, and the presence of high-end products in the market. The implants significantly eliminate the limitations of conventional removable prosthetics, which include discomfort, lack of natural appearance, and routine need for maintenance and cost associated with it.
The titanium segment dominates the global market, owing to the widespread application of titanium for the manufacturing of dental implants for its high biocompatible nature. Titanium implants can be made as a one-piece or two-piece system. The two-piece implants are witnessing high demand as it offers features such as extensive support to overdentures.
The zirconium segment is expected to attain a high growth rate during the forecast period. Based on the physical and chemical properties of the material; zirconium resembles the features of titanium. Thus, this makes it a potential alternative to titanium, which would help eliminate the additional manufacturing stages of removal of titanium oxide, which is toxic in nature. Further, implants made of zirconium can be manufactured in different dimensions, which enables flexibility in the choice of implants based on the patients’ bone size.
