The dental hygiene has advanced significantly in recent years and so have the goals for cleaning your teeth through periodontal therapy to prevent and/or treat gum disease. Bacterial plaque or biofilm is the major reason for periodontal diseases and regular cleaning of hard deposits of such biofilm and tartar through scaling treatment would help in preventing gum related diseases. A recent study by Acumen Research and Consulting on Europe Teeth Cleaning Machine Market forecasts that the market for teeth cleaning machines in Europe
is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 6% during the period from 2017 to 2024 and reach the market value of over $600 million by 2024. The major factors responsible for this growth, as outlined in the report include increasing focus on cosmetic dentistry and initiatives from Council of European Dentists (CED) to promote high standards on oral healthcare and dentistry. This is expected to set new developments, enhancing the use and efficacy of teeth cleaning machines in the region. The advancement in air polishing equipment design and powder and particle technology are the key factors leading to the greater demand for teeth cleaning machines in the region. Further, Germany represented the largest regional market for teeth cleaning machines. The dental market in Europe is all set to expand on the account of growing awareness towards preventative and corrective treatments. Increasing focus on cosmetic dentistry would drive the demand for teeth cleaning machines over the forecast period.
The instruments used for removing plaque of tartar could be ultrasonic or manual. Ultrasonic instruments have a number of advantages over manual instruments; however, the usage of either of these two instruments depends on the amount of plaque deposited on the patient’s teeth. Ultrasonic instruments are preferred in case of presence of enormous amount of tartar and plaque build-up; however, many dentists prefer using hand instruments for small amount of tartar on teeth.
The major players analyzed in the report include W&H Dentalwerk International, LM-Instruments Oy, RK Transonic Engineers Pvt. Ltd., Denticator Inc., Ningbo Runyes Medical Instrument Co. Ltd., GC Europe NV and Ivoclar Vivadent among others.
