Global Dental Thermosealers Market: Overview

Dental thermosealers are medical devices or machines used to seal surgical instruments before placing them inside the autoclave for sterilization. They are used in sterilization procedures for dental instruments. They preserve the sterility of the dental instruments at the end of the sterilization cycle. Thermosealers seal dental equipment for sterilization by using heat and pressure method. Dental thermosealers are used with sterilization tubing and similar materials to create custom-sized sterilization packaging. These simple devices heat up quickly and allow the packaging material to be placed beneath an arm that presses it into the heating element to create a proper seal for the sterilization process. A dental thermosealer should fit on a counter in the sterilization center for easy access.

Global Dental Thermosealers Market: Key Trends

A rise in the prevalence of dental diseases and increase in the patient pool are major drivers for the growth of the global dental thermosealers market. For instance, as per WHO, in 2010, untreated caries in permanent teeth was prevalent in 2.4 billion people globally. Data also shows that 621 million children were affected by caries worldwide in 2010. Increased awareness regarding sterilization and rise in the use of sterilization devices for patient safety are also some of the major factors that are propelling the growth of the global dental thermosealers market. Additionally, advanced technologies for sterilization procedures and R&D activities for dental procedures are also contributing to the growth of the global dental thermosealers market. However, high cost of devices and difficulty in maintaining the devices are projected to hinder the growth of the global dental thermosealers market.
