The global dentures market size was valued at USD 2.31 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 2.46 billion in 2024 to USD 4.19 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period (2024-2032). Dentures are custom-made tools used to replace an individual's missing teeth and restore appearance and oral functions. They are available in two types, known as complete and partial. The conventional implants are customized after the teeth are removed, and the gum tissue is completely healed. However, an immediate denture is positioned as soon as the teeth are removed to carry out basic teeth functions and are then replaced with conventional artificial teeth after a certain time. Such dentures are made from pink acrylic stimulating gum tissue, and teeth are made of plastic or porcelain. Moreover, the growing number of periodontal diseases and edentulism increases global demand for dentures.

  • For instance, according to the American College of Prosthodontists, more than 36 million Americans do not have any teeth, and 120 million people in the U.S. are missing at least one tooth. These numbers are anticipated to rise in the next two decades, and around 15% of the edentulous population has artificial teeth made each year.

Furthermore, technological advancements in denture manufacturing also support market growth. For instance, in February 2024, a team of researchers from the University of Colorado received the Anschutz Acceleration Initiative (AAI) grant for the development of novel precision biomaterials for 3D inkjet-printed dentures. This new product is expected to be launched in early 2024.

On the other hand, the COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the overall dentures market in 2020. The cancellation of non-emergency dental procedures in several countries due to lockdown restrictions hindered the market growth to a certain extent. Additionally, numerous hospitals had been converted into COVID-19 isolation and treatment centers, which had postponed elective surgeries in various regions around the globe, resulting in reduced demand for dentures. The market is projected to witness steady growth prospects over the forecast period of 2024-2032.

Dentures Market Trends

Growing Trend of Cosmetic/Aesthetic Dentistry Identified as a Significant Market Trend

One of the global dentures market trends is the increased focus on physical appearance among the young population, augmenting the demand for esthetic dental restoration procedures. Thus, while planning denture procedures, medical professionals consider the aesthetic features of the products such as the natural appearance and shape of teeth. Additionally, dental professionals consider the shape and color of supporting bone and gingival tissue to make these implants look naturally aesthetic.

Therefore, the growing trend of aesthetic dentistry amongst the millennial population is one of the major factors holding enormous opportunities for the market to flourish across the forecast period.

  • For instance, according to a study published in October 2022 by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the majority of the dental practitioners who participated in the survey stated that they have witnessed an increase in the demand for aesthetic dental procedures. One of the key factors responsible for this is the influence of social media.

  • Also, as per a survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) 2015, 86% of the total respondents in the survey adopted dental treatments to enhance physical attractiveness and self‐esteem.

Thus, several companies focus solely on researching and developing digital technology-based dentures for enhanced aesthetic tooth restoration procedures.

  • For instance, in February 2023, Stratasys Ltd launched the first monolithic, full-color 3D printed permanent dentures solution, TrueDent. This FDA-approved product is made especially for the fabrication of dental appliances.

  • Similarly, in 2020, VITA Zahnfabrik announced the launch of VITA VIONIC VIGO digital artificial teeth. These provide light dynamics and an extremely natural texture to the teeth, thus considering the aesthetic demands of the population.

Hence, the abovementioned factors hold lucrative growth opportunities for the market to witness a positive growth trajectory over the forecast period.

Dentures Market Growth Factors

Rising Adoption of Digital Dentures Anticipated to Fuel Market Growth

Adoption of various technologies such as Computer-Aided Design (CAD), 3D printing technologies, and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM). The adoption and increasing rate of digitalization is propelling the demand for the dentures which are digitalized. The new and enhanced technologies offer various advantages such as precision, durability, precision, and convenience. These new products have been proven to restore the dental functions accurately.

  • For instance, in February 2024, Desktop Metal, Inc. announced the launch of Flexcera Base Ultra+ Dental Resin for the manufacturing of 3D-printed dentures.

Penetration of digital technologies in the dental industry is a novel trend with variable uses from diagnosis, denture designing, and placement. The transformation of dental practices and the growing acceptance of the new technologies in dentistry are poised to augment the dentures market growth.

Prominent companies such as Dentsply Sirona and other companies  have been developing dental implants using digital dentistry due to rapid rate of technological advancements.  Also, several companies focus on inorganic strategic partnerships to gain a competitive benefit in the dental market. 

  • For instance, in September 2021, Dentsply Sirona announced four Lucitone Digital Print Denture System expansions. This allows the production of nearly all full arch denture types.

In March 2020, Ivotion, a single-disc milling and a monolithic solution launched by Ivoclar Vivadent AG. The solution has unique Shell Geometry which is a three dimensional tooth based on data and dental arch structure which is used for fast digital fabrication of removable lower and upper artificial teeth.

Therefore, the adoption of digital dentistry is expected to strongly drive the market development during the study period.

Rising Geriatric Population Anticipated to Boost Market Development

The rising burden of the geriatric population has resulted in an increasing demand for dentures worldwide. The growing geriatric population is anticipated to increase the demand for treatment and management of acute and chronic oral health conditions, resulting in growing demand for artificial teeth.

  • For instance, as per the data published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in October 2022, the proportion of individuals over 60 years old is expected to increase nearly twofold, reaching from 12% in 2015 to 22% in 2025.

  • Similarly, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, the number of Americans aged 65 years and above increased by roughly 25% from 2003 to 2013 and is expected to increase by another 50% by 2040. Also, from 2018 to 2038, the number of Americans aged 85 years and above is expected to double from 6 million to 14.6 million.

Furthermore, the increasing incidence of periodontal diseases among the adult population is also expected to supplement the market growth. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), the percentage of the global adult population affected by severe periodontal diseases is around 19%, representing over 1 billion cases worldwide. Thus, these factors are anticipated to propel the market growth.


High Cost of Premium Products to Restrict Market Growth in Emerging Economies

Dentures have witnessed substantial developments in the past decade, including design, customization, and material. However, the cost of these products is significantly high due to the arduous manufacturing process and the high cost associated with the materials used. Thus, the upsurge in the overall cost is anticipated to restrict the market growth during the forecast period.

  • For instance, retail prices of premium heat-cured artificial teeth are around USD 2,000 to USD 4,000 per product or about USD 4,000 to USD 8,000 or more for a complete set. The products in this price range are usually entirely customized based on the patient’s requirements.

The high price of these products restricts the population of developing economies from investing in such procedures. Furthermore, limited reimbursement for dental devices and products and related dental procedures has also been a restricting factor, resulting in the lower adoption of these products. Many insurance systems, including Medicare, do not cover the product in most circumstances. Thus, the above factors have been responsible for the limited adoption of these products in several countries and regions.

Dentures Market Segmentation Analysis

By Type Analysis

Complete Segment to Dominate Backed by Aging Population

According to type, the market is segmented into partial and complete.

The complete segment held the dominant share of the global market in 2023 due to a rapidly aging population and increasing cases of edentulism in people within this age group.

  • As per the report by the United Nations' World Population Aging Report, the count of people aged 80 years is projected to reach from 143 million in the year 2019 to 429 million.

  • Furthermore, according to an article published in December 2022, the occurrence of edentulism was 27% among people above 75. The overall prevalence was 22%.

  • Moreover, as per the WHO report titled “Study on Global Ageing and Adult Health (SAGE),” the occurrence of edentulism was higher among people above 50 years of age. The condition was prevalent in around 9% of the Chinese population above 50 years and around 16% of the Indian population in the same age group.

The partial segment is anticipated to expand at a comparatively higher CAGR during the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the rising incidences of distressing loss of tooth, and growing the demand for partial product types.

  • As per World Health Organization (WHO), around 20% of people suffer from tooth loss due to trauma at some point.

This drives the demand for fractional replacement of one or more teeth, especially among the adult population in developed and developing countries.

By Usage Analysis

Increasing Number of Dental Procedures to Boost Removable Segment Growth

Based on usage, the market is segmented into fixed and removable.

The removable segment held the dominating share in 2023 due to the distinct operational and monetary benefits of removable over fixed dentures, leading to a higher patient preference toward these types.

This, along with an increase in the number of novel product launches in the segment will lead to high adoption of removable product types globally.

The baby boomer population also holds a significant fraction of the world’s population. According to WHO, it is estimated that by 2050, older adults will hold for around 25%-29% of the population of the U.S.

Likewise, as per Canadian Longitudinal Study on ageism in Canada, the aged people continue to make up a larger share in the population and are projected to rise to 30% by 2050.

The fixed segment is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period. The segment's growth is primarily due to the increasing adoption of fixed products due to the many limitations associated with the removable ones. These include restrictions on consuming several types of food due to limited the ability of mastication and the difficult cleaning process of removable types. Additionally, fixed dentures offer a natural look, maintain the facial arrangement, and prevent further loss of bone from missing teeth.

By End-user Analysis

Higher Dental Procedural Volume at Dental Hospitals & Clinics to Aid Segment Growth

On the basis of end-user, the market is segmented into dental laboratories, dental hospitals & clinics, and others.

The dental hospitals & clinics segment led in the year 2023 with the existence of high number of dentists which are involved in the hospitals and clinics. In addition, rise in the number of dental & orthodontic clinics in Europe and U.S. is propelling the high volumes of procedures conducted. These factors are set to drive the market development.

  • According to the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 85% of dentists were associated with dental offices or private practices.

Furthermore, growing concerns over dental health result in increasing visits to dental professionals. For instance, according to CDC, in 2022, in the U.S., the percentage of adults above 18 who visited dental clinics was 64.1%.

The dental laboratories segment is anticipated to register a higher CAGR during 2024-2032. Increasing adoption of advanced digital technologies, including 3D printing in dental laboratories to design and manufacture customized products, coupled with the rising number of such dental laboratories across various regions worldwide, will significantly drive the segment's growth during the forecast period.
