Dental Bone Graft Substitutes and Other Biomaterials Market to Expand at 10.6% CAGR Owing to Advancements in Dentistry

Dental bone graft substitutes and other biomaterials have surfaced as a developing field pertaining to medical science and is aimed at repairing or assisting the restoration of natural teeth. Teeth bones could be affected by any gum disease, trauma, or tooth loss. For reduction in atrophy and the rising inclination for an enhanced aesthetic look, dental bone grafting takes place for restoration of bones to bring them back to their previous form.

The rapid recent development of the dental bone graft substitutes market is majorly due to the advancement of dental reforms in a number of nations. This has resulted in the rising awareness about dental health amongst patient population, along with affordability to avail the dental services. TMR, a market intelligence company, elaborates on the different materials used in the dental bone graft substitutes market, along with stating their key properties.

Allografts: Allografts fall under the natural materials segment and is derived from other human beings. The allograft bone comes from cadavers whose bones have been donated by the next of kin, so that it may be utilized for living individuals who require them and is primarily sourced via a bone bank. Allografts have been the most demanded material all around the world, due to their benefit of post-transplantation tissue compatibility. Three major types of allografts used are fresh frozen bone, demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft, and fresh dried bone allograft.

Xenografts: A xenograft is a tissue graft in the middle of two different species and can have a human or bovine origin. Tissue banks prefer these graft materials owing to the fact that more bone material, along with specific microstructures, can be obtained from xenografts than from allografts, which is a very significant factor for the growth of the dental bone.

Ceramics: Almost every bone graft available utilizes ceramics, either alone or combined with some other material such as bioactive glass, calcium sulfate, and calcium phosphate. In nature, it is resorbable after 30 to 60 days, bioactive, and biocompatible.

Composites: Composites include the bioactive glass, also known as bioglass. This is a type of glass that is biologically active and is silicate-based. The bioactive glass is also brittle in nature and has a high modulus.  These are utilized by combining them with polymethylmethacrylate in order to form bioactive bone cement to make a layer of calcium phosphate, which helps in facilitating the chemical bonding of implants.

The dental bone graft substitutes market will rise exponentially in the coming years and is predicted to expand at a remarkable 10.6% CAGR from 2014 to 2020. However, in January 2015, the U.S. FDA announced that bone graft substitutes shouldn’t be used in patients under 18 years of age owing to the risk of serious injuries. This may result in restrained growth of this market in the U.S. in the years to come.
