Although cast posts technique is still taught in most schools across the world a study based in the U.S. reflects that only 10% of dentists use the technique. This is primarily due to the high rate of damage to the root. This correlates with a number of studies conducted in the last decade. These days there are number of studies that compare dental fiber posts and cast posts, with results showing the tremendous advantages of dental fiber posts over the traditional cast posts. Studies show that dental fiber posts tend to have no root fractures and have a high success rate of over 95%.
An important parameter for the success of the dental fiber posts in the modulus of elasticity (Young’s Modulus). This is an inherent property of a material that does not vary with the dimension. A number of studies have proven that use of combination post/core materials that have Young’s modulus close to that of dentin, eliminates root fractures. A number of long term studies support this and confirm the success of dental fiber posts market.
Dental fiber posts made of carbon fiber are relatively easy to remove with a burr or and an ultrasonic instrument. The dental fiber posts made of quartz fiber are relatively new in the dental fiber posts market. These are also easy to remove. Although the quartz dental fiber posts show short term success, they are relatively new to the market and long term efficacy needs to be assessed to prove their long term success in the dental fiber posts market.
Dental fiber posts Market: Drivers and Restraints
The trend of endodontically treated teeth being restored using dental fiber posts is rising over the years. This is primarily due to the safety, ease of removal, aesthetic appeal, tooth conservation and improved fracture resistance to the compromised teeth. These advantages of fiber posts over the metal posts offer the dental fiber posts market to slowly takeover the metal posts market. These advantages are the primary driving force for the growth of the dental fiber posts market. However, lack of awareness, low dental insurance, rising out-of-pocket payment for dental services could hinder the dental fiber post market during the forecast period.
Dental fiber posts Market: Overview
The dental fiber posts market is expected to continue growing owing to the high adoption rate by dentists across the world. Tapered dental fiber posts is the leading segment due to a number of design advantages over the parallel dental fiber posts. However, advancements in technology have led to the development of a number combination products. Some these products are made of bundles of fibers combine together to form a flexible dental fiber post (combination type) so as to fit into irregular root spaces easily. Other combination products are designed such that they are parallel at one end and tapered on the other so the dentist can choose to use either side based on the shape of the root space and size. Thus these combination type of dental fiber posts are expected to have a higher adoption and growth rate than the tapered dental fiber posts.
Dental fiber posts Market: Regional Outlook
With availability and awareness of dental insurance in North America and Europe, the regions are expected to hold the maximum share in the dental fiber posts market. However with the increase in number of dental caries cases in the APAC region and significant rise in number of dental clinics, the APAC market for dental fiber posts will grow at a significantly high growth rate. Growing size of patient pool in the APAC region is also supporting the robust growth of the dental fiber posts market in the region.
