The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising prevalence of oral health conditions and growing awareness among the population for oral health. According to WHO Global Oral Health Status Report (2022), it is estimated that globally 3.5 billion people suffer from oral diseases, 514 million children suffer from tooth decay, and 2 billion people have caries of permanent teeth.
The market saw a significant decline due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic resulted in a decline in various dental treatments as they were elective surgeries and had a high risk of transmission of the virus, leading to the closure of dental clinics. However, after the second quarter of 2020, dental procedures such as root canaling, implants, and others resumed, which is expected to boost the demand for the market globally.
Dental burs are rotary dental equipment that is quintessential in vast categories of dental treatments. These instruments are often used for interproximal reduction, to cut the tooth with precision, shaping, polishing as well as preparing cavities for fillings, shaping bone, and removing old fillings. Dental burs attach to a handpiece that has a driving motor and are mostly made of stainless steel, diamond grit or particles, and tungsten carbide. Each material has its benefits and characteristics, which the dentists choose based on the required treatment.
Awareness among people about oral health & available treatment options aided with advancements in treatments substantially helped in improving patient outcomes. For instance, in the U.S., February is celebrated as National Children's Dental Health Month, sponsored by the American Dental Association to raise awareness among children regarding the importance of oral health. However, dentists are the prime point of contact for spreading awareness regarding oral health in their patients.
This market is witnessing growth as oral disorders such as periodontal disease, oral cancers, and environmental injuries resulting in Orodental trauma have witnessed a gradual increase. The clinician's bur selection totally depends on individual preference, the type of procedure, and the bur's effectiveness in the given clinical situation. They can be used in restorative procedures, cavity preparation, crown preparation, etc. As the utilization of these burs is endless in dentistry, the demand for these products and the advancements in bur designs and materials is expected to boost the market growth.
Improvements in burs, such as developing one-piece carbide burs with an eliminated brazed joint of two-piece burs, and new delivery methods with sterile packaged products are developed to aid technological advancements in the market. For instance, in November 2022, Mydent International launched its diamond and carbide burs products line, which are manufactured with German electroplating technology. However, diamond burs have not undergone major changes over the years, but conditions are improving, and such advancements in dental procedures & dentistry products are expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.
However, the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the overall dental and oral hygiene market. Regular dental visits, appointments, and consultations were halted in most countries as dental treatments are high-contact services, and the rate of virus transmission was deemed high. However, the market is expected to recover with the ease of restrictions. For instance, Dentsply Sirona, a key market player in the market, reported that its technologies & equipment segment, including burs, witnessed an increase in net sales by 28.7% in 2021 compared to 2020. This indicates that the market is recovering from the negative impacts caused by the pandemic.
Moreover, with the ease in COVID-19 restrictions, the demand for single-use dental burs is growing. The single-use burs are more efficient and less transmissive than the traditional ones as they do not come in contact with multiple patients. Hence, to cater to the growing demand for these single-use burs, companies are launching advanced single-use products. For instance, in April 2021, Komet USA launched hundreds of sterile, single-use dental burs, including carbides and diamond burs.
