NEW YORK, NY, USA: Although the current economic crisis is resulting in lower growth in the short term, the U.S. dental implant market will recover after 2010 and exceed US$1 billion by 2013, according to ‘US Markets for Dental Implants 2009,’ a report from Millennium Research Group (MRG).

With an economic recovery expected to begin in 2010, market growth will be stimulated by a preference for minimally invasive procedures that offer improved esthetic results and shorter treatment lengths.

“The growing population of general practitioners (GPs) placing dental implants will also lead to steady market growth, particularly with small-diameter implants that are easier to place and less invasive,” said Poonam Jassi, senior analyst at MRG.

“More GPs will learn to place dental implants because of the profit potential compared to alternative treatments, driving this market into 2013,” Jassi said.
