The use of dental mallets goes back to as old as dentistry itself. It has remained a very vital part of dentistry tools for ages. A dental mallet also known as a dental hammer as the name suggests is a small hammer of specific weight often used in dentistry for a number of applications including tooth extraction, implant placement, compressing the tooth filling, crown removal, sinus lift, ridge splitting, etc. The mallet is used to give controlled tap or pressure on a chisel or osteotome. Modern day mallets are generally made of stainless steel to provide a strong, non-corrosive surface with metal, nylon, or Teflon.
With the advent of advanced dentistry, electro-magnetic and magnetic mallets that provide added features and more proficient working have hit the markets. These magnetic mallets are intended to enhance the surgeon’s efficiency in performing specific surgery and implantology. A dental mallet gives the doctor a variety of options for advanced bone augmentation procedures. Magnetic and electro-magnetic mallets eliminate the disadvantages and limitations of manual mallets and offer dentists a higher control over the pressure, weight, and pace during mallet use.

Dental Mallets Market – Dynamics
Dental Mallets Market to Grow at Steady Pace with Growing Public Consciousness about Dental Health
The global dental mallets market is expected to grow at a steady pace during the forecast period due to a number of factors including rising incidence of dental problems, global aging trend, need for painless procedures, advancements in dental implant techniques, and growing awareness about dental health among people. Oral health is essential to maintain general health and quality of life. According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) 2012 statistics, 60% to 90% of school children and nearly 100% of adults worldwide have dental cavities. About 30% of people aged between 65 years and 74 years have no natural teeth. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), more than 30 million people in the U.S. have teeth missing in one jaw or both the jaws. AAID also states that around 10% of the dentists in the U.S. place implants on a regular basis and the trend is growing rapidly. A similar scenario is observed in emerging markets. Dental implants are now emerging as a trend among people with teeth missing due to accidents, diseases, and injuries.
Dental Mallets Market – Competitive Landscape

Dental Mallets Market Segmentation – by Geography
In terms of region, the global dental mallets market can be segmented into:
- North America
- Asia Pacific
- Latin America
- Middle East & Africa
North America is expected to account for dominant share of the global market in 2018. Developing countries such as India and China are suffering from dearth of dental health care facilities. There exists a significant difference between developing countries and developed countries in terms of dentist-to-population ratio, leading to an untapped opportunity. The dentist-to-population ratio in developing countries such as India and China is around 1:15,000, whereas the ratio is close to 1:2,000 in developed countries such as the U.S. Low penetration of dental products/healthcare facilities in developing countries has led to high unmet needs of dental health care. Therefore, a favorable change in the dentist-to-population ratio in these countries would provide growth opportunities for the dental mallets market in these countries.
Dental tourism is a collateral service meant to provide patients with cost-effective oral treatments in developing economies such as India, Turkey, and Hungary. It is widely practiced to attract patients from developed economies, who prefer traveling abroad in search of low-cost and high-quality oral treatments. Dental tourism is flourishing due to low labor cost, low fixed cost, and minimum government intervention in the health care industry in developing economies. For example, root canal treatment starts from US$ 550 in the U.S., while it costs only US$ 110 in Turkey, US$ 69 in Hungary, and US$ 60 in India.
