Mergers and acquisitions play a significant role in the dental market

In the highly competitive dental market, major growth techniques are implemented for the growth strategies starting from providing free dental checkups, to merging and acquiring companies for personal growth.

In April 2022, Solmetex, a supplier of dental products for water treatment and waste management acquired Sterisil, a dental waterline treatment provider. It was acquired to expand and boost the development and implementation of transformational technologies, focusing on cleaner water for the safety of patients during dental procedures and treatments. It was followed by Solmetex’s acquisition of DryShield, which manufactures all-in-one isolation systems for patients including a high-suction evacuator, saliva ejector, tongue shield bite block, and other oral protectors. This acquisition’s focus is to boost and scale DryShield in the dental markets domestically as well as internationally.

In June 2022, Orthocell, a developing regenerative medicine company partnered with Bio-Horizons Implant Systems by entering a trademark license agreement for the distribution and supply of Stiate+ dental products, which is a resorbable collagen membrane that is used in regeneration procedures of bone and tissue.

Top Innovations to look out for in the Dental Market

From a survey, it has been found that patients hesitate in visiting dentists because of the fear of pain during dental procedures. Sky Quest found in a survey that around 10% to 39% of patients have complained because the pulpal anesthesia was not effective in their cases. This has opened the market for the demand for correct local anesthesia that can boost confidence in patients. Recent research shows that inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB) injection was more effective when it was followed after receiving nitrous oxide/oxygen as opposed to room air/oxygen. This has led to show that the success rate of such anesthesia is accelerated when nitrous oxide is used.

DLP or Digital Light Processing 3D Printing has emerged to be a more effective way of producing dental crowns than conventional million. It has been found that the 3 print restorations have shown higher accuracy and fewer discrepancies as compared to that of conventional milling in permanent crown production. The DLS (Digital Light Synthesis) technology is a type of 3D printing which is resin-based and it is known for its lightspeed and precision using digital light projection and oxygen-permeable products. In a recent study, it was also found that carbon printers have been found more reliable in the dental market procedures as compared to others., especially in the implant industry.

For instance, Ziemek Laboratory in Washington, USA, has fully shifted to the digital dentistry approach. It specializes in creating implants, crowns, and other removable products as required in the dental market. With the help of the Carbon M series printers, they have been able to tackle the biggest shortcomings, which are, the unpredictable and unprecedented cost structure of the procedures, inconsistency appearing in the procedures, and lastly, the high rising cost of such dental model production. The cost of production has shrunk from 27.5% to 12.5%, the production time has declined by as much as 40%. Another instance is Derby Dental Lab which has been able to accelerate its dental model production by 60% with the help of Carbon 3D printing.

SprintRay, a dental technology company that focuses on creating end-to-end 3D printing of dental procedures like crowns, inlays, only, and veneers, came up with SprintRay Crown which is a ceramic-filled 3D printing used for building permanent crowns and so on. It is a budget-friendly technology and highly specialized, making it a go-to option for dental professionals.

Besides, Sky Quest found in its extensive research that dental radiology equipment is in high demand with more and more research and development investments going into them.
