Fluoride is a natural mineral that builds strong teeth and prevents cavities. It’s been an essential oral health treatment for decades. Fluoride supports healthy tooth enamel and fights the bacteria that harm teeth and gums. Tooth enamel is the outer protective layer of each tooth. Fluoride is especially helpful if one is at high risk of developing dental caries, or cavities. Cavities occur when bacteria build up on teeth and gums and form a sticky layer of plaque. Plaque produces an acid that erodes teeth and gum tissue. If the plaque breaks down the enamel layer, bacteria can infect and harm the nerves and blood at the core of the tooth. Dentists provide professional fluoride treatments in the form of a highly concentrated rinse, foam, gel, or varnish. The treatment may be applied with a swab, brush, tray, or mouthwash. Increasing prevalence of dental caries and rise in awareness regarding oral health and hygiene are some of the key factors anticipated to drive the market for dental fluoride treatment.
Covid-19 Scenario analysis:
Pharmaceutical and biotech companies together with governments around the globe are working to address the COVID-19 outbreak, from supporting the development of vaccines to planning for medicine supply chain challenges. Currently, around 115 vaccine candidates and 155 molecules are in the R&D pipeline. Moreover, commonly used drugs such as Hydroxychloroquine have witnessed a dramatic surge in demand for the management of COVID-19. Such high demand for these drugs has presented huge opportunities for manufacturers of COVID-19 management drugs, as many developed countries are facing shortage of these drugs. Thus, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry is expected to witness a significant growth in the future owing to the demand for vaccine and treatment drugs for COVID-19. This in turn is expected to have a significant impact on the dental fluoride market.
Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact analysis:
Increased preference for preventive minimum invasive dental procedure:
There has been a shift towards preventive and minimally invasive treatments, dental varnish has emerged as one of the most important product for dental care.

Sugary food and drinks release acid when they are broken down by the bacteria present in the mouth. This acid eventually dissolves the tooth enamel, thereby causing tooth decay creating a need for fluoride treatment for preventive measure.
Availability of cheaper alternatives:
The toothpaste segment is estimated to witness a healthy growth in the future attributed to wide availability with the affordability of the products. The low cost of manufacturing with easy to use is some more factors contributing to the growth of the market. With growing awareness about dental hygiene and the rising prevalence of dental caries are also expected to aid the demand of toothpaste and further propel the market. Dental fluoride varnish is also estimated to witness a significant growth in the future owing to relatively inexpensive treatment costs with quick and easy applications of fluoride and low risk of fluoride ingestion. Moreover, these can be applied by an oral health professional and non-health professions thus result in facilitating the adoption of fluoride varnish treatment.
