Europe Market Report for Dental Bone Graft Substitutes 2017 - MedCore
Dental bone grafting procedures are typically associated with dental implants to restore the edentulous area of a missing tooth. Dental implants require sufficient bone tissue in the jawbone to support the implant and ensure proper integration into the mouth. If a patient has endured being toothless (edentulism) for a prolonged period, they run a high probability of having insufficient bone tissue. In this case, they ideally required a bone graft in order to maximize the outcome of a dental implant surgery. The bone grafting market is segmented on the basis of the material’s origins. Dental bone graft procedures include autografts, allografts, xenografts and synthetics.

The European dental bone graft substitute market can be segmented by material type, yielding three segments: allografts, xenografts and synthetics. As autografts are harvested from a patient and are not necessarily sold within the market, they are not included within the market analysis of the overall DBGS market. Instead, autograft bone materials are considered separately as a potential market. Consumer preferences for less invasive procedures and lower total operation time have lessened the demand for autograft procedures and instead pushed forward the market for DBGS materials.
Further increasing the demand for the DBGS market is growing consumer awareness. Consumer awareness pertains both to dental professionals and patients. In recent years, dental implant companies have invested significant resources in dental implant training programs, which have greatly improved the expertise level of dental professionals conducting dental implant and corresponding DBGS procedures. Dental professionals (including general practitioners) are now better educated of the necessity of sufficient bone quality for a successful implant procedure and the innovative products available on the market. Because they are now better equipped with this knowledge, dental professionals are more likely to recommend patients to undergo a DBGS procedure where necessary. Additionally, a greater pool of dental professionals is now trained and able to conduct DBGS procedures in the market. Patients are now more knowledgeable of the options available to them and the benefits of each and therefore have grown more accepting of procedures that utilize synthetic, animal or other human bone materials as opposed to autograft materials."
