Dental and Oral Care Processing Solutions

From endo-, ortho- and periodontic products to prosthetics, alloys, bonding agents, biomaterials, disposables, restoratives and preventives, the market for dental and oral health products is booming.

Globally, the oral care sector comprises products such as toothpastes and mouthwashes that are designed to improve oral hygiene and deliver dental care. More and more consumers are becoming aware of the effects of poor oral hygiene, as well as wanting to maintain an aesthetically pleasing smile and fresh breath. Further, factors such as increasing dental tourism and aesthetic dentistry amongst an ageing population are strong industry drivers. Manufacturers are responding to these demands with a range of formulation innovations and less-traditional appliances and implements.
