LONDON, Dec. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A dental laser is a tool that produces a narrow light beam, which when directed towards a tissue, brings about required changes. It is used to remove or shape a tissue in a dental treatment procedure.

Dental lasers are used in different treatments, such as laser assisted caries diagnosis and management, restorative dentistry, oral surgeries, periodontitis treatment, pediatric restorative dentistry, frenectomy, endodontics, biostimulation, and others. They are also used to whiten teeth, help treat infections in root canals, remove inflamed gum tissues; and aid in the treatment of gum diseases, biopsy procedure treatments, removal of muscle attachments that limit proper movement; and so on. Laser procedures are precise and can reduce the healing time required and control bleeding during surgery.

The global dental lasers market is expected to reach USD 224.7 million by 2020, at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020. The increasing awareness for oral hygiene; rising middle class and aging population; and rising demand for cosmetic dentistry, reduced treatment time, and operating cost have influenced the growth of the dental lasers market.

The soft tissue dental lasers segment accounted for the largest share of the global dental lasers market in 2014. Soft tissue lasers are used to sterilize endodontic canals and treat periodontal disease as well as in tooth whitening procedures. The soft tissue dental laser segment dominated the market, owing to the increased number of cases of gingivectomy and periodontal diseases, among others.

North America dominated the dental lasers market, due to the increasing technological advancements, growing awareness with respect to oral hygiene, and rising adoption rate of newer technologies in the region. However, the Asia-Pacific market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to factors such as the rise in the awareness of dental lasers, increased number aesthetic procedures, and rise in aging population.
