Dentures are synthetic devices engineered to replace the missing natural tooth or teeth, which takes the support of the existing soft and hard tissue structure in the oral cavity. Dentures are a part of restorative dentistry. Though dentures do not feel or function like natural teeth they can help in mastication, aesthetics, and speech, and improves self-esteem.

The rising aging population globally has driven the global dentures market. This geriatric population usually 65 years and above majorly suffer from poor oral conditions like bone loss, tooth decay, and periodontal diseases due to underlying diseases like diabetes, heart conditions, etc. The enhanced focus on aesthetics in the current population from younger adults to older individuals also propels the dentures market growth. The increased burden of oral diseases and oral cancer worldwide are contributing to the growth of the dentures market.

The insubstantial reimbursement for dental devices and procedures and the presence of alternatives for dental restorations hinder the market growth.

Denture Market by Type
The denture market based on tooth coverage has been subdivided into two types: complete and partial denture. The complete denture segment holds the largest share of the market. The resulting aging population and associated conditions such as edentulism i.e., complete teeth loss, is the major factor attributing to the growth of this segment. Furthermore, technological advancements in the development of complete dentures and an increasing number of dental clinics and practitioners drive the growth of this segment.
Denture Market by Usage
Based on usage, the denture market has been bifurcated into removable and fixed. The removable denture segment holds dominance in the market. The operational and economic benefits of removable dentures lead to their high preference amongst patients. Its less invasive characteristic steers its increased usage, hence driving the market. The fixed denture segment in the forecast period is expected to observe rapid growth due to its aesthetic benefits, allowing patients to consume some food items which were restricted in removable type dentures.
Denture Market by Mode of Dispensing

This is likely to continue in the years to come due to the affordability, accessibility of experts, and technologically advanced surroundings. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the industry had many challenges because of the processes' high risk of virus transmission. The dental clinics were unable to operate during the early period. However, they are resuming their normal business operations. Hence, this segment holds the majority share of the dentures market.
Denture Market by Region
Based on region, the global dentures market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (ROW). North America now dominates the dentures market, and it is expected to keep expanding over the forecast period. The rising incidence of dental diseases, the accessibility to sophisticated healthcare infrastructure, as well as the growing acceptability of contemporary dental treatment procedures, are major factors impacting the growth of the dentures market in North America. The market will expand in this region as more people wear dentures due to the high prevalence of dental caries and related disorders. Thus, it is projected that the expansion of the regional market will be fueled by the increased prevalence of dental issues. Additionally, there are several benefits to the technological advancements in CAD and intraoral scanners, from safety to better treatment outcomes. Dental CAD is getting more and more popular with Americans due to a lesser number of dental visits and time-friendly repair procedures.
Over the next several years, Asia Pacific is expected to experience the industry's quickest development due to the expansion of dental practices, medical tourism, more research into dental goods, and growing awareness of oral health. The Asia Pacific healthcare infrastructure is expanding with the aid of cutting-edge technologies.
