Availability of a plethora of imaging techniques has been responsible for the rapid advancement of the global market for dental imaging. When compared with intraoral imaging technique, panoramic imaging is a faster way of obtaining an image of the entire dentition. It also has a comparatively low radiation burden. Therefore, the demand for panoramic dental imaging is expected to increase.

Cephalometry, 3D imaging, intraoral imaging, and 2D imaging are some of the key types of dental imaging technologies available in the market. Several healthcare providers have been offering child-friendly treatments to reduce the unnecessary levels of dose administered to children during exposure settings, ensuring safety.

By modalities, the global market for dental imaging has been segmented into cone beam computed tomography, general x-ray, and intraoral cameras. The general x-ray segment can further be divided into analog and digital x-ray. By type of imaging systems, the global market for dental imaging can be broadly segmented into extraoral and intraoral imaging systems, both of which can be categorized into 3D and 2D imaging systems.

By geography, the North America appears to hold the leading position in the global market for dental imaging. Alarming incidence of dental diseases including chronic bad breath, tooth ache and tooth decay, bleeding gums, and periodontal diseases is the major growth driver of the digital imaging market in this region.

Dentsply Sirona Inc., Danaher Corp., LED Medical Diagnostics Inc., Midmark, Carestream Health, and Planmeca are some of the prominent companies operating in the global dental imaging market.
