Partial Denture Market: Introduction

In the denture market today, if people are losing their teeth because of malnutrition, or have trauma then full or partial treatment can fill the gaps occurred in teeth or in jaws.

There are two broad terms related to Denture market:

Partial Denture: Partial denture is used on patients who have missing teeth or missing jaws.

The kind of gap between the teeth determine what type of partial denture it requires.

Basically there are two kinds of partial denture:

  • Fixed ( also known by dental implant bridge)

  • Removable ( also known by removable dental bridge)

In fixed partial denture the artificial teeth is been attached directly to the jaws with the help of dental crown or under gum tissues with the help of dental implants.

In removable partial denture, it fills the gap occurred between teeth and do replacement attached to a gum-colored plastic base. These dentures are attached with the help of metal framework to keep them on place.

  • Prevent shifting of teeth in mouth.

  • Reduce the stress on jaws.

Partial Denture- Market Driver

The major factors accountable for the growth of partial dental market are:

  • Growing incidences of dental caries and other periodontal condition.

  • Growing incidences of tooth loss.

  • Rising aging population.

  • Focus on providing quality dental care.

  • Increasing disposable income.


In United States, the partial denture market is projected to be the fastest growing sector over the next 2 or 3 decades because of aging baby boomer patient base, growing life expectancy of the adult population and slow economic recovery which is creating need in the denture market and hence the demand of partial denture is increasing.

The partial denture market growth constraints are:

  • Poor dental insurance coverage for dental implant

  • Low reimbursement

  • Fewer experienced denture technicians

  • Reduced curriculum in dental schools for partial denture

Partial Denture- Market analysis

North America

Current statistics shows that around 20% of 65 + age population of US have lost their all teeth due to tooth decay or gum disease. The numbers of US adults who are missing teeth will only increase as the average life expectancy moves upward from 78.9 years to a projected 79.5 years by 2020. This increase in average life expectancy, along with the aging of the 79 million US Baby Boomers and their “forever young” mindset, will boost the demand for precision-made removable prosthetic appliances for decades to come.


Moreover, Asia is expected to see the high growth of the acrylic denture as it is a price sensitive market. Acrylic teeth dentures are less expensive as compared to metal or porcelain teeth which increase their adoption in the Asian region. Furthermore, China in Asia is one of the largest hubs for manufacturing the denture across the globe. The largest denture manufacturing hub across the continents also supports the Asian denture market growth rate.
