Intraoral Scanners

The Requirement of Advanced Intraoral Scanners Worldwide Is Likely to Compel Key Manufacturers to Develop Cost-Effective Products in The Upcoming Years.

Intraoral Scanners (IOS) are dental equipment used in dentistry to capture direct digital impressions. In other words, it is a digital device used to capture 3-D images of internal area of the mouth. It works similarly to other scanning devices. A laser source is projected onto the tooth site, which must be observed. Intraoral scanners are utilized to scan dental arches, prepared teeth, and implant scan bodies. These scanners have overcome many obstacles, unlike classic scanners that use impression plates and trays. Intraoral scanners also cause little discomfort for geriatric patients when trays are used during scanning. As a result, patients prefer 3D digitization impressions that are more comfortable and pleasant. Recent intraoral scanners, due to technological improvements, can scan the entire arch of teeth in less than 3 minutes. Intraoral scanners also reduce the procedural stress for dental professionals by making impressions easier under difficult circumstances.

Major Factors Driving Growth Of The Global Intraoral Scanner Market:       

According to Reports and Data, high revenue growth of the intraoral scanner market is attributed to rising demand for tooth restoration operations. Tooth restorations are necessary to restore missing teeth, dental structure fragments, or structures that must be removed to prevent tooth decay. Tooth restorations enable patients to chew food properly and speak clearly. It also helps in restoring an individual’s self-confidence. In addition, for effective tooth restorations and fixed tooth prosthesis, precise dental imprints are required.

Furthermore, intraoral scanners are used in dentistry operations for collecting data to control the digital workflow. It generates an accurate dental imprint and acts as the fundamental stage in tooth restoration. Rising usage of intraoral scanners also eliminates analogue impressions, which are one of the most common barriers to providing improved patient assessment & treatment and sources of errors in dentistry workflow. Digital impressions can enhance efficiency and productivity of dental procedures, while giving a high extent of precision.

Factors Restraining Growth Of The Global Intraoral Scanner Market:

The global intraoral scanner market growth is substantially hampered by several unfavorable factors. High initial cost of digital technology is one of the restraints of this market. The cost of purchasing computer hardware and software solutions, as well as digital imaging sensors, is very high. Maintenance, repairs, software upgrades, and equipment replacement must be considered while transitioning from radiographic film to digital imaging.

Moreover, manufacturers have addressed numerous concerns about image manipulation. If the enhanced image does not match the original image, dental software solutions will issue a warning. It is advised that original photographs must be copied and maintained on the computer or network servers. Researchers in the field of fraudulent digital dental records state that digital content includes metadata. Limited intraoral positioning of the sensor due to patient anatomy and patients’ comfort are also set to hamper the intraoral scanner market growth. Furthermore, dental clinicians require extensive training for the operation of numerous types of digital sensors. Lack of training programs may hinder growth.

Opportunities For Players Operating In The Global Intraoral Scanner Market:

Requirement of advanced intraoral scanners worldwide is likely to compel key participants to develop cost-effective products in the upcoming years. Companies are striving to equip intraoral scanners with numerous safety features. These factors are expected to open up lucrative business opportunities for major players and new entrants in the market.

Global Intraoral Scanner Market Revenue Led By Type Segment:

Based on type, the powder-free intraoral scanners segment is expected to reach the highest revenue share over the forecast period. Powder-free scanners are simple to use and need fewer steps during scanning because these scanners do not require the application of powder to patients’ teeth. Furthermore, these scanners do not require dentists to consistently check on patients’ teeth during intraoral scanning. The absence of powder in these scanners provide more convenience of handling, which, in turn, makes the entire process more efficient. In addition, powder-free scanners are used to quickly take digital impressions and decrease scan time. These scanners are less likely to require rescans than powder-based scanners.

Global Intraoral Scanner Market Leading End-use Segment:

Based on end-use, the hospitals segment is expected to dominate all other segments in terms of revenue generation over the forecast period. This is attributed to availability of multiple dental treatments, qualified healthcare professionals, and modern intraoral scanners in hospitals. Also, robust health reimbursement schemes and rising number of multispecialty hospitals worldwide would propel the segment in the near future.
