Dental filling is the process of treating a cavity or repairing broken or cracked teeth due to misuses like tooth grinding or nail-biting. Dentist removes decayed portion of tooth and fills the area. Dentists numb the area first with the help of a local anesthetic to remove the decayed portion with a laser, drill or air abrasion. Doctor’s choice of instrument depends upon various aspects such as dentist’s training, comfort level along with location and extent of decay. Once the removal of decay is over, doctor prepares the area for filling by cleaning bacteria and debris in cavity. In case, decay is near root, dentist puts a liner first, which is made of composite resin, glass ionomer, or other material, for protecting nerve. Once the filling is over, dentist does the finishing touch and polishes it. Currently, several dental filling materials are available in the market. Silver amalgam, porcelain, and gold are used to fill teeth. In addition, tooth-colored and composite resin fillings of plastic and glass are also used for dental filling. Decision on type of filling depends upon various facts such as location and extent of decay, patient’s insurance coverage, cost of filling material, and dentist's recommendation.
The major factor driving demand for dental fillings is increasing prevalence of dental caries. In addition, prevalence of other dental conditions such as cavity and tooth decay due to bad eating habits along with growing patient awareness and increasing geriatric population are expected to increase demand for dental fillings in the global dental fillings market during the forecast period. Due to poor dental hygiene and unhealthy dietary habits, oral diseases such as dental caries are highly prevalent among elderly population and children in developing countries. World Dental Federation reports that approximately 3.9 billion people are becoming prey to dental caries annually, which comes around half of the world’s population. Apart from dental caries, periodontal diseases are also highly prevalent among the adult population. Such a high prevalence of dental diseases among individuals is expected to further drive growth of the market globally during the forecast period. Other factors driving the market include increasing demand for dental aesthetics and growing demand for cosmetic procedures due to technology advancements. The two major categories, boomers and millennials, usually demand for these procedures. Boomers demand for dental aesthetics such as dental implants and veneers to maintain youthfulness, whereas millennials are more focused on orthodontia, tooth whitening, and exotic surgeries. Innovations in dental filling materials is also expected to increase demand for the market in the global dental fillings market during the forecast period.
