Oral health is an essential component of health throughout life. Poor oral health and untreated oral diseases and conditions can have a significant impact on quality of life. They can affect the most basic human needs, including the ability to eat and drink, swallow, maintain proper nutrition, smile, and communicate. The advancements in the early detection system have enabled experts to counter almost any kind of oral problems. Dental imaging is a process of creation of high quality images for the diagnosis of dental problems. Dental imaging technologies help dentists to diagnose dental diseases by providing actual and visual images of the dental problems such as hidden dental structure, cavities, bone loss, and oral malignant melanoma.
Depending upon the modalities available and employed by experts, global dental imaging market can be segmented into three segments: General X-Ray, Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) and intraoral cameras. The general X-Rays are further segmented into two sub-segments: Digital and Analog X-ray. On the basis of the imaging systems, dental imaging market is divided into two broad categories: Intraoral and Extraoral imaging systems. These both segments can further be divided into 2D and 3D imaging systems.
Dental imaging help in gaining a better view of bone structures, such as adjacent root positions, in order to locate canals and root fractures, as well as provide the ability to more accurately measure anatomical structures. These scans also support a wide range of diagnosis and treatment planning, making them extremely flexible. Further, they increase the possibility of treatment success, granting practitioners greater predictability and confidence in preparing for extractions, performing root evaluations, and placing implants. With these benefits, dentists rely heavily upon these scans and with increasing number of dental implants; demand for these devices is expected to increase many folds.
