Market Overview

The United Kingdom Dental Devices Market is expected to register a CAGR of nearly 6.1% during the forecast period.

The SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic has posed significant challenges to the health, social, financial and educational systems. While COVID-19 produces very severe illness, and in some cases death, mainly in the elderly group of population.

According to the General Dental Council UK, during the COVID-19 pandemic 2020, in United Kingdom, access to dental services was severely impacted by COVID-19 with the backlog of patients in need of oral treatment and care due to reduced capacity in the system. Adding to that, the impact of COVID-19 has been more severely in the population who were already more likely to have poorer health outcomes, including people from ethnic minority backgrounds, people with disabilities and those living in more deprived areas.

According to the House of Commons of the United Kingdom, On 25 March 2020, National Health Service (NHS) dental practices were told to cease routine dentistry, including orthodontics, in response to the pandemic. NHS dental practices in England were subsequently asked to reopen from 8 June 2020 “for all face to face care” and have remained open. In addition, on 4 January 2021, UK government guidance published regarding which businesses can remain open in England during the new national lockdown specifically lists “medical and dental services”.

Some of the factors that are responsible for the growth of the market are the growing ageing population, increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry, increasing incidence of dental diseases, and innovation in dental products. Due to the increasing aging population, there has been an increase in the number of dental implants and oral surgeries being performed. For instance, according to the World Population Ageing 2019 report, the United Kingdom population aged 65 years and older is projected to grow from 12.49 million in 2019 to over 18.77 million by 2050.

In addition, there is a decrease in manual dexterity, and an increase in co‐morbidity and medications affecting the oral cavity. Hence, dental care in aged care facilities is found to be poor, and access to dental professionals is difficult. There are several other risk factors, such as smoking, poor oral hygiene, diabetes, medication, and hereditary conditions, which are also connected to the increase in dental diseases. Thus, it is being found that the number of elderly people is growing rapidly in all industrialized countries and, thus, contributing to the increase in the United Kingdom dental devices market.

Moreover, one of the main factors considered to drive the United Kingdom dental devices market is the shifting dynamics of patient’s choice and increase in the demand for cosmetic dentistry and increasing awareness among population regarding oral health. For instance, as per British Society of Periodontology, in 2018, BSP’s conducted awareness programs regarding the importance of gum health in pregnancy and childhood.

Furthermore, increasing number of dental clinics and practitioners providing large-level dental care services are also driving the United Kingdom dental devices market. However, factors such as excessive costs involved in private health insurance and negligence observed for oral health, which is diagnosed as major diseases at the later stage of the disease development.

Key Market Trends

Endodontic Segment is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share Over the Forecast Period

Endodontic treatments are mainly focused on diagnosing tooth pain and performing root canal treatment and other procedures related to the interior of the tooth. The treatments specialize in saving the tooth as much as possible. They are also designed to go deep into the tooth, where the infection or inflammation resides, and to remove the infected tissue to alleviate the pain.

In the United Kingdom, the COVID-19 pandemic has placed increased demands on clinical staff in primary dental care due to a variety of uncertainties. During the COVID-19 pandemic 2020, the British Endodontic Society (Bhanderi & Tomson 2020) proposed a palliative approach for the treatment of endodontic disease using verbal advice and detailed analgesic and antibiotic regimens for both adult and paediatric patients.

Endodontic surgery is most often an elective procedure, it might be the only treatment approach to address a patient's symptoms. In such cases, clinicians might be at a greater risk of exposure to aerosols. According to a research study by Jamie Daly et al., published in Community Dental Health Journal 2020, in the United Kingdom, as the incidence of COVID-19 infection fell, there was a phased re-opening of dental practices, with considerable variation in the guidance given for safe reopening. Upon re-opening, two-thirds of UK practices runned at less than a quarter of pre-pandemic capacity, with 78% citing the post-treatment procedure for the clearance of infectious aerosols after aerosol-generating procedures as the greatest obstacle towards increasing activity. 

Dental procedures are common in the United Kingdom. According to an NHS report, 39.7 million Courses of Treatment were delivered in 2018-19, which is an increase of 1.28% from previous year.

The various procedures involved in endodontics include root canal treatment, apicoectomy, and few treatments related to the infected pulp and root. Some of the equipment used in endodontic treatments are root canal explorer, barbed broaches, drills, hand files, paste fillers, spreaders, etc. Surgical endodontics of endodontic therapy experienced the greatest degree of change during the past decade. Endodontic treatments usually require competent technical skills and experience, as well as an understanding of pulp anatomy and its variations, knowledge of root canal morphology and tooth pulp chamber to perform endodontic procedures with better quality.
