Key trends fueling growth

  • Orthodontic treatment corrects various dental issues, including bites, teeth alignment and temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Malocclusion, affecting oral function and esthetics, is prevalent in China (65-80 percent in primary dentition). Irregular incisors affect the U.S. population.
  • TMD, involving jaw and muscle problems, worsens with age. TMJ disorders result from factors like genetics or jaw injuries. In the U.S., TMJ and muscle disorders affect about 8.5 percent of the population, mainly younger individuals and women.
  • This high prevalence fuels the demand for orthodontic supplies and instruments, driving market growth.

The orthodontic market encompasses various preventive and corrective measures for misaligned teeth and improper jaw positioning. Dentofacial orthopedics plays a significant role in enhancing esthetics and ensuring good oral health for both children, teens and adults. Leading reasons for orthodontic treatments include dental problems caused by road traffic accidents, sedentary lifestyle and tobacco consumption.

Dental clinics specializing in orthodontics offer a range of treatments, including orthodontic procedures such as brackets, anchorage appliances, and ligatures.
