Market Overview

The dental cement market is expected to witness a rapid growth, due to an increase in the incidence of teeth discoloration, gaps between teeth, misalignment of teeth, etc. Furthermore, there is a significant increase in the number of cases of dental cavities. The primary cause for the high prevalence of dental cavities and dental diseases across the world is poor oral hygiene status and aging of the population. Thus, there is an increase in the number of public health awareness programs, in order to promote the importance of proper oral hygiene and educate consumers on dental caries.

Dental cement is used to fill the gaps between the restorations and natural tooth. Moreover, it is considered to be crucial in the precise positioning of dental restorations. Mercury amalgam and alternative filling materials, such as composite resins, glass ionomer cement, ceramics, and gold alloys, are safe to use for restoring teeth.


Scope of the Report

As per the scope of the report, dental cement is considered as a group of materials, with a wide range of dental and orthodontic applications. The common applications of dental cement include temporary restoration of teeth, cavity linings, sedation, and insulation, as well as for cementing during the fixation of prosthodontics. The dental cement has unique properties, such as non-irritant, prevent leakage, high tensile strength, chemical and thermal resistance, and low thickness.

Key Market Trends

The Zinc Phosphate Segment is Anticipated to Register High Growth Over the Forecast Period

Zinc phosphate cement is one of the oldest and widely-used cements, mainly for luting permanent metal restorations. Zinc phosphate witnessed high growth, in terms of adoption, due to high-strength cement base when mixed with zinc oxide powder and phosphoric acid liquid. There are many other uses of this cement, including the permanent cementation of crowns, orthodontic appliances, intraoral splints, and fixed partial dentures. Thus, this dental material is witnessing high clinical success rate, primarily associated with its long-term usage. Some of the key brands in the market include DeTrey Zinc Improved (DENTSPLY Caulk), Fleck’s Zinc (Mizzy, Pearson Lab), Hy-Bond (Shofu Dental Corporation), and Modern Tenacin (DENTSPLY Caulk), among others.

According to the World Health Organization’s report, dental caries is one of the major oral health problems affecting nearly 60-90% of the school children and a vast majority of adults. Moreover, there has been a steady increase in the number of geriatric population in the region. The geriatric population generally requires regular dental check-ups and dental health assistance. This is driving the growth of the market. In addition, the rising health awareness and increasing adoption of cosmetic dental procedures are considered to be the key factors for the market’s growth.
