Global Oral X-Ray Machines Market: Overview
X-rays are a widely used imaging diagnostic technique. X-rays could be either digital or analog. Thanks to their wavelength, which is in the range of 0.01 to 10 nanometers, x-rays can create clear images of the skeleton and organs of the body. This aids medical specialists to spot an aberrations in the characteristics or function of an organ. A suitable treatment plan can then be charted out. Besides x-rays, the other medical imaging diagnosis techniques used widely across the world include computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, computed radiography, PET scanning, and endoscopy. The use of an x-ray can be successfully made on most body parts.
The report on the oral x-rays market discusses the emergent opportunities and trends in using x-rays as a means to diagnose oral problems and address them effectively. The World Health Organization’s estimates reveal that the number of people suffering from poor oral health worldwide is dramatically high. It is estimated, for instance, that nearly 100% of adults worldwide have at least one minor dental cavity. Likewise, anywhere between 60% and 90% school children suffer from dental cavities. Gum (periodontal) diseases are not as prevalent, but a serious cause of concern worldwide nevertheless.
The risk factors for oral diseases range from excessive tobacco consumption to poor oral hygiene and from an unhealthy diet to high-than-recommended consumption of alcohol. As more people worldwide suffer from oral diseases, diagnosing them in a timely manner becomes imperative. That has created a massive market for oral x-ray machines. Dental x-rays can help dentists and radiologists look at how healthy a tooth’s roots are, locate cavities, check if the bony area surrounding the teeth is in good health, and determine if periodontal diseases are developing.
Global Oral X-Ray Machines Market: Segmentation
The use of oral x-ray machines is typically made when medical practitioners need to carry out diagnostic imaging via the buccal cavity. Their use in private or independent clinics and hospitals (both public and private) is widespread. Oral x-ray machines are also purchased by equipment leasing companies, who may then lease out these devices to the actual end users.
The expanding application base of oral x-ray machines will also cause their sales to demonstrate an upswing. Currently, based on what purpose they are used for, oral x-ray machines can be classified as therapeutic, forensic, cosmetic, and diagnostic. The use of oral x-ray machines in diagnostic applications has been high through the years. Their use is now beginning to grow in cosmetic applications as well. This is expected to be an important trend for companies in the global oral x-ray machines market.
Global Oral X-Ray Machines Market: Trends and Restraints
With dental x-rays having proven their efficacy in detecting oral diseases early on in their development phases, their adoption has risen over the years. The rising number of aged individuals who are at a higher risk of suffering from periodontal diseases and other oral health issues, will act as a major driver for the global oral x-ray machines market.
Any diagnostic imaging technique that uses radiation is faced with some resistance from patients because of the harmful effects that radiation is known to have. This is no different for oral x-ray machines. Thus, companies will have to find ways to make their machines safer for use on patients of all ages, and also position their machines thus to gain an edge over their competitors.
The market for oral x-ray machines is currently the largest in North America. This trend is gradually changing, with countries in Asia Pacific proving to be a massive untapped market for these medical devices.
Companies that currently boast a strong presence in the global oral x-ray machines market are: Sirona Dental Systems, Inc., Gendex, Vatech America, and Carestream Health.
