Both dental implants and prosthetics are used for either filling oral cavities or replacing them with a concrete solution. One of the most common dental prosthetics is dentures that are majorly used by the geriatric population. During old age, when the teeth fall off, a good set of dentures help elder people to live a normal oral lifestyle. If some of the teeth are sustainable, partial dentures are also possible. Dental implant is a kind of oral prosthetic in which the gum is opened up and in the cavity is positioned a prosthetic crown. This requires nearly five to six months of healing depending upon the patient’s bone structure. The continent of Europe has made immense efforts in improving oral health of its citizens. Better Oral Health in Europe, a joint initiative of Association for Dental Education in Europe (ADEE), the Council of European Chief Dental Officers (CECDO), the European Association of Dental Public Health (EADPH), the Oral Health Foundation, and the Pan-European Region of the International Association for Dental Research (PER-IADR) aims to provide access to oral healthcare to everyone in Europe by the year 2020. These are some of the reasons why this region leads the dental implants and prosthetics market geographically and in the year 2018, had a regional share of 33%. Dental Implants & Prosthetics Market Growth Drivers:
Ø Global Consumption Of Sugar
World Health Organization recommends not more than 25 grams of sugar consumption per day for adults. However, a large section of the world population easily consumes almost double the amount owing to packaged foods easily available in the market. Regular consumption of sugar and its products leads to tooth decay as these products dissolve tooth enamel over time and lead to cavities. This drives the global dental implants and prosthetics market majorly and helps in inspiring innovation for oral healthcare. Ø Expanding Urbanization
With a large section of the world’s population becoming educated and a constant increase in disposable income amongst the working class, consumption of packaged products available at supermarkets and convenience stores has become an everyday thing. With people of the both the genders working now almost equally in most urban areas, cooking meals at home has become a foreign concept. Packaged foods with their sugary and oily ingredients deteriorate dental health and lead to growth of the dental implants and prosthetics market by generating a high demand for dental examination.
Dental Implants & Prosthetics Market Challenges:
The most prominent challenge of this market is the disappointing dentist-to-people ratio which has always been rather low.

Valachovic, by 2020 this ratio is projected to be 52.7 which means that there will be only one dentist per 1,898 people. Increasing awareness for dental care amongst general public and a greater number of medical students opting for odontology is the way to combat this challenge.
