Dental liners and bases are new dental materials which improve restorative and prosthodontic care among dental patients. Liners and bases prevent the adverse effects of bacterial toxins on pulp. The desirable properties of liners and bases include high compressive and tensile strengths, and radiopacity. Other features of liners and bases are easy mixing, easy cleanup, and rapid setting. Dentists prefer liners and bases which provide proper isolation to teeth and reduce bacterial contamination. Liners and bases is considered to be the most attractive concept for the next generation prosthodontic care. The use and availability of different material types of liners and bases have evolved in the last few decades. However, research continues for the development of more clinical applications and reduce the adverse effects associated with the use of liners and bases in orthodontic care. Increase in research and development activities by manufacturing companies is likely to drive demand for liners and bases among dentist and orthodontic surgeons.

High incidence of dental problems is a major factor driving the global dental liners and bases market. Increase in incidence of periodontic diseases among young adults and rise in demand for stem cell tooth regeneration techniques, especially among the geriatric population are the other factors anticipated to propel the global market. Favorable reimbursement policies such as coverage of Medicaid insurance for dental loss treatment and emergence of new technologies for teeth protection such as varnish material liners are expected to propel the global dental liners and bases market. According to the World Health Organization, complete loss affects approximately 30% of geriatric population aged between 65 and 74. However, prevalence rates are increasing in low and middle income countries. Factors such as preference for endodontic treatment over tooth restoration in major dental surgeries and local inflammatory activity which results in chronic complications & dental replacements are likely to restrain the market during forecast period.

The global dental liners and bases market can be segmented based on material, end-user, and region. In terms of material, the market can be classified into varnish, calcium hydroxide, glass ionomer, resin, and others. The varnish segment accounted for a prominent share of the global market in 2017 due to increase in dental surgeries and rise in demand for cosmetic surgeries, especially in emerging markets such as China, Brazil, and India. In terms of end-user, the global dental liners and bases market can be divided into hospitals, dental clinics, ambulatory care centers, and others.

In terms of region, the global dental liners and bases market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is projected to dominate the global market during the forecast period due to increase in dental services and cosmetic surgeries. According to the Dental Health Services, the total expenditure on dental services in Canada stood at US$ 13.6 Bn in 2015. Private sector expenditure was estimated at US$ 12.7 Bn, while public sector expenditure was US$ 846 Mn. In April 2017, Unilever launched an in-clinic remineralization regime to regenerate professionally advanced enamel serum. The brand claimed 82% of the enamel mineral regenerated after three days. Furthermore, rise in prevalence of dental cavities & periodontics, especially in developing countries such as China and India, has led to increase in orthopedic and dental surgeries. According to the World Health Organization, 60% to 90% school children and nearly 100% adults have dental cavities. This, in turn, is anticipated to fuel demand for cost-effective aesthetic and dental surgeries. These factors are projected to drive the dental liners and bases market in Asia Pacific between 2018 and 2026.

Key players operating in the global dental liners and bases market include 3M, Danaher Corporation, Dentsply Sirona, Inc., Shofu Dental Corporation, Ellman International, Inc., DenMat Holdings LLC, Coltene Holding AG, Temrex Corporation, Bosworth Company, Kettenbach, Bisco, Inc., and Cetylite Industries.
