The rising prevalence of dental pain and disorder among rising population globally, has been fuelling demand for effective dental management treatments and therapeutics. According to the World Health Organization, almost 100% of adults around the world have dental cavities. It also found that severe periodontal ailments affect over 15% to 20% adults worldwide. There are little chances for this number to reduce in the near future, thus demand from the dental pain market is expected to remain high in the forthcoming years.
The most common causes of dental pain include occlusal trauma, periodontal abscess, apical periodontitis, alveolar osteitis, and pulpitis. Non-dental such as maxillary sinusitis, psychological disorders, and tumors could also cause dental pain. Some of the most commonly used therapies for the treatment of dental pain are antifungals, root canal therapy, antibiotics, phototherapy, fluoride applications, and antiseptics.
The leading companies operating in the market are looking forward to capitalize on the prevalent situation. They have been accelerating research spending to discover novel therapeutics and treatment methods. Such strong efforts by research institutes and key players will create lucrative opportunities for the dental pain market.
