About Dental Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges are prosthetic dental devices used for dental restoration. They help to alter the shape and size of tooth, offer strength, and improve aesthetic appearance. Some of the common dental problems include bad breath, tooth decay, gum disease, mouth sores, oral cancer, and tooth sensitivity. Most crowns and bridges are made of porcelain or ceramic material that matches the color of the natural tooth. Other materials include titanium, gold, acrylic, and metal alloys. These are mounted or cemented onto existing tooth, which can only be removed by dentists.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global dental crowns and bridges market to grow at a CAGR of 7.69% during the period 2016-2020.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A noteworthy trend is the rising popularity of medical tourism in the APAC region. APAC is the fastest-developing healthcare market and is an attractive destination for medical tourism. Though dental clinics in developed countries offer quality medical care, high costs and lack of reimbursements compel people to opt for cost-effective alternative clinics. Most countries in APAC, particularly China’s private medical facilities, provide low-cost dental care with high-quality standards to attract patients from all over the world.”
According to the report, a rise in the incidence of oral diseases is becoming quite common among people of all ages but many are preventable. Oral diseases range from cavities to oral cancer. Tooth decay (cavities), chronic bad breath, periodontal gum, and bleeding gums are the most common oral diseases. The risk of acquiring periodontal disease is high in people with diabetes. This disease can lead to difficulties in chewing and may lead to tooth loss in several cases.”
Further, the report states that a lack of consumer awareness and limited availability of dental care can hinder market growth.
