Cone beam computed tomography in dental imaging is referred as a special type of x-ray machine used in situations where regular dental x-rays are not sufficient. It is not commonly used because the radiation exposure from this scanner is significantly more than regular dental x-rays. It uses special type of technology to generate the three-dimensional (3-D) images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths in a single scan. This device gives an idea of treatment required for a particular patient through the image overview. It can be used to produce images that are similar to those produced by conventional computed tomography imaging. It produces high-quality images. It was developed with the objective of producing similar types of imaging but with a much smaller and less expensive machine that could be placed in an outpatient office. It provides detailed image of the dental structures to evaluate the diseases of the jaw, dentition, and bony structures. It has the advantage of lower radiation exposure as compared to the conventional computed tomography. It can be used in surgical planning for impacted teeth, diagnosing temporomandibular joint disorder, placement of the dental implants, evaluation of the jaw, sinuses, nerve canals, and nasal cavity. It also finds its use in detecting, measuring, and treating jaw tumors, also in determining bone structure and tooth orientation, locating the origin of pain or pathology. It is also used in the process of reconstructive surgery.
COVID-19 Scenario Analysis:
To take care of infected population, the demand for medical supplies is increasing. Respiratory support devices such as atomizer, life-support machine, oxygen generator, and monitor are among the majorly used medical devices in primary clinical treatment. Moreover, COVID-19 has led to a huge surge in demand for medical supplies such as personal protective equipment including masks, gloves, and protective eyeglasses. With rise in number of COVID-19 cases worldwide, the need for medical supplies keeps on rising among, both from healthcare professionals and civil population for precautionary measures. Manufacturers of these products have a chance to capitalize this increased demand of medical supplies to ensure adequate and continuous supply of personal protective equipment in the market.
Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, impact analysis
Increase in the usage of the cone beam computed tomography in dental procedures including orthodontic diagnosis and treatment is expected to drive the growth of the market. Furthermore, increase in adoption of the CBCT technology by the healthcare professionals boosts the growth of the market. Moreover, rise in the prevalence of the technology among the institutes as it is coupled with 3-D clinical photography an accurate predictive altering, which provides precise diagnosis, planning, and treatment of facial deformities and facial and dental implant surgeries contributes to the growth of the market. Furthermore, increase in the utilization of the CBCT for the oral and maxillofacial surgery and in the cosmetic treatments by offering highly accurate 3D radiographic images also help increase the growth of the market. Moreover, surge in the healthcare expenditure and technological advancements intend to increase the growth of the CBCT dental imaging market.
However, high cost of the imaging systems and lack of the awareness about the use of the advanced technologies are the factors posing the key restraints in the growth of the market.
New product launches to flourish the market:
