Dental Lasers Market Analysis
The Dental Lasers Market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period.
Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a decrease in hospital visits associated with dental treatments. The fear of getting infected with the virus and the postponement of dental surgery procedures and online consultation were the major factors that contributed to decreased visits to dental clinics. In terms of revenue and net sales, this downfall trend was observed in several other companies in the market. In March 2020, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommended that dental practices postpone elective dental procedures until April 6, 2020, and provide emergency-only dental services to help keep patients from burdening hospital emergency departments. This subsequently leads to decreased demand for dental lasers, which has majorly affected the overall market. However, the market is gradually stabilizing as COVID-19 cases are declining, resulting in the return of the normal demand levels for dental procedures. For instance, according to an article published by the Times of India in July 2022, the dental health industry is coping with an increase in complaints. While dentists are seeing a 30-40% spike in footfall at their clinics, patients are finding it tough to get appointments. Thus, an increase in dental procedures is expected to have a significant impact on the dental laser market over the forecast period.
The major factors contributing to the market's growth are the advantage of laser dentistry, the increase in the incidence of oral problems, and the increasing demand for non-invasive procedures and painless dental treatments. As per a course by Crest + Oral-B at dentalcare.com, dated December 2021, a variety of cutting-edge treatments using various dental lasers are being developed because of recent technological advancements and different wavelengths. The ability to perform less invasive procedures with greater patient comfort makes laser dentistry something the modern practitioner should consider. These factors promote the usage of dental lasers and are expected to drive the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in September 2020, 47.2% of adults over 30 years old had some form of periodontal disease. The American Dental Association (ADA), in 2021, further states that 7.8% of adults with gum disease have severe periodontitis. The increased periodental disease will increase the demand for dental laser treatment driving market growth.
The increasing incidence of periodontal diseases and rising geriatric population, increasing demand for non-invasive procedures and painless dental treatments, and growing technological advancements in dental lasers are expected to drive the market over the forecast period. For instance, as per November 2022 estimates of the WHO, oral diseases affected close to 3.5 billion people worldwide, with 3 out of 4 people affected living in middle-income countries. Furthermore, according to American Dental Association, in November 2022, the global cases of oral diseases have increased by 1 billion over the last 30 years. With such an increase in dental disease, the demand for a dental lasers is expected to increase, driving growth in the market. Furthermore, according to an article published by the National Library of Medicine, in August 2022, the prevalence of periodontal disease in middle-aged and elderly individuals is high. Thus, the geriatric population showing a high prevalence of periodontal disease will increase the demand for dental lasers in the market.
Therefore, the factors mentioned above are attributed collectively to the studied market growth over the forecast period. However, the high costs of dental lasers and poor reimbursement policies are expected to hinder market growth over the forecast period.

Dental Lasers Market Trends
Soft Tissue Dental Lasers are Expected to Witness Significant Growth Over the Forecast Period
Soft tissue lasers are of the diode, CO2, and Nd: YAG Lasers. CO2 lasers are a 10,600 nm infrared wavelength, which is highly absorbed by water used for intraoral procedures. Traditional 10,600 nm CO2 lasers are currently used for soft tissues only, which are very efficient and exhibit excellent hemostasis. Diode lasers are invisible near-infrared wavelengths, and current machines range from 805–1064 nm used for soft tissue procedures such as gingivectomy. Diode lasers are quite popular due to their compact size and relatively affordable pricing. Diode lasers exhibit bactericidal capabilities and are used for adjunctive periodontal procedures and laser-assisted tooth whitening. Nd: YAG lasers are a near-infrared wavelength of 1064 nm and are primarily used for periodontal treatments.
An increase in soft tissue disease and dental clinic visits are expected to drive segmental growth. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) figures from 2020, nearly half (46%) of all adults aged 30 or older exhibited symptoms of gum disease in the United States, and severe gum disease affected roughly 9% of all individuals. Such an increase in soft tissue diseases such as gums is expected to increase the demand for soft tissue laser treatment, driving market growth. Moreover, according to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) March 2020 update, dental treatment averages 5% of total health expenditure and 20% of out-of-pocket health expenditure in most high-income countries. Additionally, according to NHS Dental Statistics 2021-2022, there was an 18.7% increase in adult clinical treatments for Scale and Polish in 2020-21, and approximately 18.2 million adults were seen by an NHS Dentist up to June 2021. there is an increase in the rising prevalence of soft tissue disorders, such as periodontal disorders and gingivitis, and increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures coupled with the rise in disposable income are the key driving factors in the soft tissue dental lasers segment.
Therefore, the factors mentioned above are expected to drive segmental growth in the market during the forecast period.

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period
North America is expected to hold a significant market share in the dental lasers market due to the rising prevalence of gingivitis, caries, periodontics, and high disposable income in this region. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 46% of United states adults aged over 30 years suffer from gum diseases. In addition, according to the American Dental Association (ADA) estimates, there are 10,658 orthodontists are currently practicing in the United States, which translates to about 3.27 orthodontists per every 100,000 population. Furthermore, according to the Division of Oral Health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, data updated in December 2020, nearly half (46%) of all adults aged 30 years or older show signs of gum disease; severe gum disease affects about 9% of adults. More than 1 in 4 (26%) adults in the United States have untreated tooth decay. This prevalence of oral infectious is expected to drive the market in the region.
Moreover, several companies are continuously working on approval for dental lasers, which is also one of the driving factors for market growth. For example, in January 2022, BIOLASE, Inc., and EdgeEndo announced the FDA 510(k) clearance of the EdgePRO system for endodontists seeking a more effective cleaning and disinfection alternative within root canal procedures. Thus, because of the aforementioned factors, the dental laser market is expected to grow tremendously in North America over the forecast period.
Therefore, the factors mentioned above are expected to drive market growth in the region during the forecast period.
