In the United States, millions of people have lost at least one permanent tooth. More than thirty million people have lost all of the teeth in their upper and/or lower jaws. Tooth loss begins relatively early. Almost 70% of adults 35-44 are missing one or more permanent teeth as a result of gum disease, decay, or traumatic event. Among adults 74 and older, 26% are missing all of their permanent teeth. Many have chosen to replace those teeth with implants. The market for implants in the U.S. is approximately $1.1 billion.

Approximately 13% of people receiving implants are between the ages of 65 and 74. The number of dental implants has been increasing since 1999. From 2019 to 2020, the procedure increased 6.3%. Between 2020 and 2026, it’s expected to increase by 23%. The volume of premium implants will decrease in favor of value-priced implants by 2025. Bone grafts are an important part of the process yet, of the more than 150,000 general dentists, fewer than 30% are trained to do the procedure.

The average success of a dental implant procedure is 97%. The global market is expected to achieve an annual valuation of almost eight billion by 2024. Adults in America, between the ages of 20 and 34, have an average of 26.9 teeth. Those between 35 and 49 have an average of 25 teeth while people between 50 and 64 have approximately 22.3 teeth on average. Tooth loss is the primary reason people take advantage of tooth implants.

More than 120 million people in America have lost one or more teeth. That number may rise to as many as 200 million Americans within the next 15 years. Approximately 36 million Americans have lost all of their teeth while adults aged 20-34 have lost at least one permanent tooth. Twenty percent of adults aged 65 or older have no remaining permanent teeth. Adults older than 74 are two times more likely to have lost all their teeth than people between the ages of 65 and 74.

Dental implants in America use titanium 92.45% of the time. Threaded dental implants perform better than smooth implants. During a period of ten years, crowns only lasted 50% to 80% of the time while dental implants were successful as much as 98% of the time. Just less than 50 percent of Americans qualify for a dental implant because at least one permanent tooth must be missing. From 1999-2000, the occurrence of dental implants increased 0.7%. From 2015 to 2016, it increased 5.7%. Threaded titanium dental implants were successful 95.5% of the time. General dentists perform about 33% of dental implant procedures. Dentures that can be removed only deliver about half of the biting strength of permanent teeth whereas dental implants deliver the same bite power as permanent teeth.

By 2024, it’s estimated that the market for dental implants should reach $6.82 billion. Titanium is used in 92.45% of the procedures because of how well it works with existing bone. Zirconia implants are projected to record the highest CAGR of 8% through the forecast period. This ceramic material reduces infection because it isn’t corrosive, is non-allergic, and inert. A drawback to zirconia implants is that they are one piece and prohibit tooth flexibility. Greater than 15 million Americans have selected a bridge or crown to replace a missing tooth. A single implant costs between $1,500 and $6,000. Replacing all the permanent teeth with dental implants can cost between $7,000 and $90,000 depending on the type of procedure performed. More than half a million dental implants are performed each year.
