Demand for Glass Ionomer Cement Likely to Decline amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The onset of the novel COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a moderate impact on the overall growth of the global & Asia Pacific glass ionomer cement market in 2020. While the healthcare sector is increasingly being burdened with new cases of COVID-19, governments across the world are prioritizing COVID-19 care and treatment. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the dental industry is experiencing a relatively sluggish period, as patients are either delaying treatment or canceling the same due to the fear of contracting the novel coronavirus. Although dental clinics and services were exempted from the lockdown policies in several countries, the number of patients opting for dental treatment during the COVID-19 situation has declined by a considerable margin. As a result, the demand for glass ionomer cement is expected to dip in 2020 and gradually gain momentum toward the end of 2020 or the first quarter of 2021.

Glass Ionomer Cement Market: Overview

  • Glass ionomer cement, also known as giomer, is used as a restorative material for eroded areas. It is also used as a luting agent.
  • Glass ionomer cement is highly durable and tough compared to other restorative materials. It has the same natural color as teeth. Glass ionomer cement also releases fluoride ions beneficial to the teeth. Properties of glass ionomer cement include biological compatibility, anticariogenic properties, and adhesion to moist tooth structure.
  • Glass ionomer cement is primarily used for class III and class V cavities. It is not recommended for class II and VI restorations, as it lacks fracture toughness. Glass ionomer cement is susceptible to wear and cannot be used in load-bearing areas.

Glass Ionomer Cement Market: Highlights

  • Glass ionomer cement is preferred for pediatric restorative dentistry due to its chemical adhesion to tooth structure and fluoride release. It is also useful for different clinical applications.
  • Glass ionomer cement offers various advantages, including the ability to bond chemically to enamel and dentin, favorable thermal expansion, biocompatibility, ability to act as a fluoride release, and decreased moisture sensitivity. Thus, glass ionomer is ideal for a ‘high caries risk’ child.  
  • Glass ionomer possesses cariostatic quality and acts as a reservoir and source of fluoride. Glass ionomer acts as an absorbent and sponge in the uptake and release of fluoride. Fluoride recharge occurs due to exposure to fluoridated dentifrice and mouth rinses. Fluoride is effective against caries; furthermore, it is antibacterial, and helps in remineralizing enamel. These factors are driving the consumption of glass ionomer cement in pediatric dental treatment. This, in turn, is estimated to boost the global & Asia Pacific glass ionomer cement market during the forecast period.
