At a current value of USD 1,673.2 Million Denture Market is expected to have a cumulative CAGR of 7.3% within the forecast period of 2022-2028. A denture is a permanent or adjustable restoration for missing teeth and tissues around missing teeth. Complete and partial dentures are the two types of dentures that are offered. When all teeth are lost, complete dentures are utilized; when some natural teeth are still present, partial dentures are. Conventional and immediate dentures are generally two options offered in the case of complete and partial dentures. Conventional dentures are customized ones that are prepared by taking the impression of the missing tooth area and applied after the gum is healed. Whereas the immediate ones are generally temporary one that is applied just after removing the decayed teeth before the healing process of the gum tissue is completed. During the healing process, the bones and gum will shrink and would misfit the immediate dentures, which ultimately needs to be replaced by conventional one. Various problems are associated with missing teeth; low confidence while speaking, smiling, and appearance are the major issue faced by patients who undergo denture application. Other problems include distortion of proper pronunciation, distortion of jaw shape and facial muscle, which makes a person looks older, and problems in eating certain types of food. Nowadays, tooth decay and loss are widespread in the modern generation due to excessive consumption of ready-made available sugary drinks, junk food, and lack of proper oral health care. According to the data from the American College of Prosthodontics, around 36 million American do not have any teeth, and 120 million American lacks at least one tooth. With the modernization and urbanization of society, along with adaptation to modern lifestyle, tooth decay and loss problems are increasing. Thus, millennials, including teenagers, are suffering from partial tooth loss, and the demand for dentures and dental implants are in a surge which is one of the major driving factors for the growth of the global denture market. Furthermore, with the increasing geriatric population where tooth loss was already a common health issue, despite adjusting without teeth due to the non-availability of convenient solutions to the problem are leaning towards dentures which again will boost the global denture market in the forecast period. With the advancement of denture manufacturing technology like the implication of computer-aided design (CAD), there has been a vast improvement in the convenience, precision, durability, and consistency for which the millennials are getting attracted to dentures more than before. With the assimilation of modern technology in the dental care industry, the diagnosis precision and placement of dentures are safer and more convenient than before. Along with this, the awareness of personal appearance is increasing among the young population who are convinced to spend on aesthetic dental procedures with the available convenient technology, this is acting as a significant driver for the growth of the denture market. Two types of use options are currently available the removable one and the fixed one. Fixed dentures are often associated with dental implants, which give a better feeling of natural teeth but have the disadvantage of the high cost of manufacture. Most of the cases there is a partial loss of teeth in the young population, which drives the market for removable partial denture as these products comes with the advantage of wearing the dentures conveniently and are also much cheaper. Dental adhesives are sometimes used to increase the sense of security the patients with partial dentures as these products enhance the holding of dentures in place. Although there is much availability of modern technology with that, the cost of the overall procedure from start to end in increasing. Also, there is limited reimbursement the aesthetic dental procedures. Furthermore, major insurance companies are not covering these types of procedures. These factors are becoming the key restraints for the global denture market to grow.
