The most important use of dental caries detectors is to detect the early stages of dental caries, or more commonly called dental decay. Dental decay is characterized by dark brown or black spots on the teeth and is a condition that can cause immense pain for the patient as well as a lot of money for the dental care practitioner or dental clinic. The problem with detecting dental caries is that it takes a long time before any visible signs of dental decay are found on the teeth, and the only way to be sure that the condition is not going to worsen is through the use of dental caries detectors.
The growing incidence and prevalence of dental caries are augmenting the growth of the dental caries detectors market. As per the report published by World Health Organization, globally, it is estimated that 2.3 billion people suffer from caries of permanent teeth and more than 530 million children suffer from caries of primary teeth. Rising awareness regarding oral hygiene coupled with the advancement in the dental caries detectors is also supporting the growth of the dental caries detectors market. In October 2017, Ortek Therapeutics, Inc. announced that the Ortek ECD™ received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The ECD is a patented lightweight tabletop device designed as an aid for dental professionals to diagnose and monitor dental cavities in the biting surfaces of molars and premolars.
In February 2019, Align Technology, Inc. announced the launch of the iTero Element 5D Imaging System. The iTero Element 5D scanner is the first integrated dental imaging system that simultaneously records 3D, intra-oral color, and NIRI images and enables comparison over time using iTero TimeLapse*
In October 2019, The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) has awarded GreenMark Biomedical a $1.5 million Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to further develop its patented nanoparticle-based dental technology for detecting early-stage dental caries that could be treated non-invasively without fillings or surgery
