Global Oral Irrigators Market - Introduction
Oral irrigators were introduced in the dental industry in 1962. Oral irrigators, also known as water flossers, are devices that direct a pulsated stream of water into the mouth using a tip. These irrigators are mainly used for the treatment of various dental diseases such as periodontitis, gingivitis, tooth decay, and plaque. These devices clean hard-to-reach areas such as periodontal pockets, spaces between teeth, and remove food debris, plaque, and bacteria from gums and teeth. Oral irrigators are also used by people with braces, dentures, and implants to maintain oral hygiene. Airfloss ultra, hf-3 premium, and WaterPik Aquarius water flosser are commonly available oral irrigators in the market.

Global Oral Irrigators Market - Dynamics
Rise in Prevalence of Dental Disorders Globally
Periodontal diseases, dental plaque, tooth loss, caries, and decay are most common dental disorder cases reported across the globe. Gingivitis and periodontitis are the two major forms of periodontal diseases that cause inflammation of gums, bones, and tissues of teeth. Periodontal diseases are the main cause of tooth loss in elderly patients and lead to the formation of pockets or spaces between teeth and gums.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approximately 47.2% of adults aged 30 years and above in the U.S. suffer from periodontal diseases. Thus, increase in the prevalence of periodontal diseases in developed as well as developing countries is expected to drive the demand for oral irrigators during the forecast period.
Surge in Adoption of Dental Irrigators in Homecare Settings
Technological advancements in dental irrigation devices as well as rise in awareness about oral care in emerging countries are expected to propel the global oral irrigators market in the near future. Moreover, rapid development of cordless oral irrigators or water flossers will propel their adoption in homecare settings. For instance, Water Pik’s Cordless Advanced, Cordless Plus, Cordless Freedom, Cordless Express, and Panasonic EW-DJ10-A Portable Dental Water Flosser are some of the cordless oral irrigators that are portable, easy-to-use, and cost effective and can be used for personal care.
North America to Dominate the Oral Irrigators Market while Asia Pacific will Provide Lucrative Growth Opportunities
Rise in periodontal diseases and dental caries, strong emphasis on dental care, and availability of dental irrigation devices in the U.S. are major factors boosting the adoption of advanced dental irrigators or water flossers in North America. According to the American Academy of Periodontology, 64.7 million, i.e. nearly 50% adults in the U.S. have gum diseases. Moreover, according to CDC, in 2016, the prevalence of total dental caries among children aged between 2 years and 19 years was 45.8% in the country. All these factors are anticipated to boost the demand for oral irrigators during the forecast period.
