The global dentures market is classified into four types.

  • Complete Dentures
  • Partial Dentures

The global dentures market is driven by key factors such as the rising prevalence of dental diseases and gum diseases such as gingivitis, periodontitis, etc. Additionally, the increasing number of dental problems, such as dental cavities and traumatic injuries resulting in tooth loss, will also result in a growing demand for complete and partial dentures among eligible patients. Denture manufacturers are constantly striving to create dentures that meet the specific needs of certain dental anomalies, such as amelogenesis imperfect and congenital anomalies associated with cleft palate and craniofacial defects. The partial dentures segment generates the most revenue, owing to rising public health awareness regarding oral care and the rising prevalence of dental cavities. Growing demand from a younger patient population demanding aesthetic and cosmetic improvements also facilitates the growth of this segment. Because of the rising prevalence of periodontal diseases and gingivitis, as well as the growing geriatric population, which is more vulnerable to tooth loss as they age, complete dentures will perform admirably. Complete dentures also find huge clinical applications in edentulous patients, such as improvement in mastication, better pronunciation of words containing sibilants, and improved quality of life. The major players in the global dentures market are DENTCA, Inc., Caiyu Dental, Dentsply Sirona, GlaxoSmithKline plc, Heraeus Kulzer GmbH, Klema Dental Products GmbH, Modern Dental Group Limited, Vita Zahnfabrik, and other notable players.

The global dentures market is classified based on the material used.

  • Acrylic
  • Flexible Thermoplastics
  • Replacement Partials
  • Combination of Metal and Acrylic
  • Cast Metal

Dentures are custom-made tooth replacements that are fitted into the mouths of edentulous patients. Dentures support the facial muscles and structures, decrease oral bone loss, and improve the patients' self-esteem and quality of life. Acrylic dentures currently have a lucrative market and hold the largest market share. Factors such as the growing number of geriatric patients suffering from tooth loss due to gingivitis and periodontitis, as well as the inherent benefits of acrylic material in the making dentures such as easy fabrication, adjustment, and trimming, excellent chemical bonding with the denture base, and batter compatibility when compared to other materials, all, contribute to this segment's dominance. Additionally, acrylic dentures are lighter in weight and cause less trauma in the denture-bearing area. The combination of metal and acrylic segments is anticipated to be the fastest-growing market. Acrylic and metal combination dentures have a huge advantage in meeting the requirements of patients with few remaining teeth, such as enhanced dental clasps, support, and a better fit in the denture-bearing area. The combination material also provides bulk to dentures and leaves the palate uncovered, where the patient can experience the taste of food.

For the purpose of this study, the global dentures market is categorized into the following regional and country-specific markets:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • Middle East and Africa

North America dominated the global dentures market in 2016, and this trend is expected to continue throughout the forecast period. According to the CDC's 2015 statistics, approximately 64% of the American population between the ages of 18 and 64 have had dental complications addressed. The leading position of the North American market is mainly attributed to aspects such as the significant rise in the prevalence of dental complications and diseases among both young and geriatric populations, the widespread presence of advanced dental clinics and facilities, and the domicile of several large players in the region. The European market is mainly characterized by the swift adoption of advanced and breakthrough technologies by patients and caregivers alike and the growing demand for dentures used in aesthetic procedures. Additionally, Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-progressing regional segment during the forecast period. The growing prevalence of dental diseases, significant growth in the senescent population, rising health awareness, and increasing disposable incomes are some of the critical factors that support the growth of the Asia-Pacific market. Furthermore, the growth of medical tourism in the region, as well as the penetration of major market players, has created significant opportunities in the Asia Pacific dentures market.
