Edentulism Market - Solution 1

There is not enough publicly available data to reliably calculate the market size of cantilever bridges, either in the US or on the global level. Available information has been entered on page 5 of the attached document. Our explanations of how we approached the research have been outlined below.

HELPFUL FINDINGS

RESEARCH STRATEGIES

Due to the lack of publicly available data, the market size for cantilever bridges couldn't be reliably determined. First, in order to locate the market size of cantilever bridges, in the US and globally, we performed a direct search for reports on the market size. Various market research sources were searched, such as Allied Market Research and Grand View Research, but even though reports on the dental bridges market existed, the market size for cantilever bridges wasn’t available. Cantilever bridges were mentioned as a segment of the dental bridges market, along with other sub-segments such as Maryland bridges, but market sizes for these sub-segments appeared to be hidden behind paywalls.

Since we were able to find the size of the global dental bridges market, we searched for information on the amount of the dental bridges market cantilever bridges take up. We scanned market research sources, industry-specific publications and expert commentary on the topic, hoping to locate segmentation charts, graphs or mentions of cantilever bridges market share, but no relevant information could be located. Regional market share information was available, but information on the market share of cantilever bridges market couldn't be traced. Still, it is possible that dental bridge market reports hide this information behind paywalls, as the edentulism solution is mentioned there.

Since information required to triangulate the market size didn't seem available, we attempted to manually calculate the market size using the following two data points: [1] the average cost of a cantilever bridge procedure, and [2] the number of cantilever bridge procedures that happen in the US and on a global level, yearly. Industry publications such as the Dentistry Journal were searched, as well as orthodontist and dentist associations such as the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists, but the second data point couldn't be found. We managed to find the average cost of a cantilever bridge procedure, but the market size couldn't be calculated because it was unclear how many cantilever bridge procedures occur on a yearly basis, or how many people have cantilever bridge implants, either in the US or globally. Information on total orthodontic US procedures was available, but this wasn't broken down into types of orthodontic procedures. In addition to these strategies, we attempted to find outdated information to triangulate the market size, but even after searching for information older than 20 years, no relevant insights specific to cantilever dental bridges could be obtained.

Edentulism Market - Solution 2

The market size of Maryland bonded bridges, either in the US or globally, couldn't be reliably determined due to insufficient available data, as explained below. In the attached document, page 6 has been filled with the available information.

Helpful Findings — Maryland Bonded Bridges (Resin-bonded Bridges)

  • Maryland-bonded bridge procedures cost $1,100 — $2,300 per bridge (a false tooth and two wings). In case of two false teeth, the bridge will cost between $1,700 — $3,500 ($250 — 550 per wing and $600 — $1,200 per false tooth).
  • Maryland-bonded bridges will typically last 4 to 8 years. Dental insurance usually covers up to 50% of the procedure cost, up to $1,000 or $2,000 a year.
  • According to iData Research, the biggest dental implant manufacturers in the US are Nobel Biocare, Straumann, Dentsply Sirona, Zimmer Biomet, BioHorizons, Implant Direct and HIOSSEN, among others. Neither of the key players published data on the demand for resin-bonded bridges they face.
  • According to the American College of Prosthodontists, around 120 million Americans miss at least one tooth. In the next two decades, this number is expected to increase. This problem is more present in economically disadvantaged and aging people.
  • 15% of the edentulous population has dentures made on a yearly basis. There are 3,500 practicing prostodontists in the US. It is unclear what amount of the edentulous population wears or gets Maryland-bonded bridges yearly, or how many Maryland-bonded bridges prostodontists install on a yearly basis.

Research Strategy

The market size of Maryland-bonded bridges could not be determined. First, a direct search for the size of the Maryland-bonded dental bridges market was conducted. Various market research sources, such as Mintel, were searched, along with several industry-specific publications, such as the California Dental Association and Implant Dentistry. In these types of sources, we aimed to either find the market value in USD, or the number of bridges installed across the US on a yearly basis. No relevant information was found. Available information described the bridge implementation procedures and was focused on the patients’ point of view, rather than quantitative industry data.

Since it seemed evident that relevant pre-compiled information does not exist, we attempted to calculate the market size by searching for the following data points: [1] the number of resin-bonded procedures that happen in the US and globally each year, and [2] the number of people currently wearing resin-bonded bridges. Either of these two data points would then be used together with the average cost of a resin-bonded procedure to calculate the market size. Additionally, since we located the number of prosthodontists in the US, we aimed to find the number of Maryland-bonded bridges an average prosthodontist implements on a yearly basis. This strategy was unsuccessful because neither of the three required data points could be located. Available data focused on periodontology procedures in general, rather than specific types of procedures, such as resin-bonded bridge installment procedures.

Next, we carried out a search for relevant, but outdated studies. Our goal was to locate outdated information on the market size and past information on market growth, which could be used to derive at current market values. Several dentist association publications, university databases and research databases, such as Research Gate and JSTOR were searched, but again, no relevant mentions specific to resin-bonded bridges could be traced, even after looking for information older than 20 years. Available information focused on procedure descriptions from patients’ point of view and scarce publications discussed the industrial aspect of dentistry.

We resorted to identifying the biggest resin-bonded bridge manufacturers to check their annual reports in order to find out how much resin-bonded dental implants they manufacture or sell yearly. This would have been used together with the average price of a resin-bonded bridge to calculate the market size, given that the biggest players in the market likely supply the vast majority of the implants. Although a list of the largest resin-bonded implants couldn’t be located, we used this list of the largest US dental implant manufacturers in general. We searched each of their filings and public statements, but could not trace any data surrounding their production volumes of Maryland-bonded bridges specifically. Furthermore, resin-bonded or Maryland-bonded retainers were not mentioned in any of the searched public statements.

Edentulism Market - Solution 3

The team could not determine the market size of traditional bridges, either in the US or globally due to insufficient available data. We have provided the available information on page 7 of the attached document.

KEY FINDINGS

  • A traditional bridge consist of a false tooth/teeth being held in place by dental crowns. The dental crowns are usually cemented onto each of the abutment teeth.
  • According to transparency market research, traditional bridges dominate the dental crown and bridges. The reason is that, the ability to create a seamless appearance and improve dental health.
  • About 120 million Americans miss at least one tooth, and more than 36 million do not have any teeth. In the next two decades, this number is expected to increase. This problem is more present in economically disadvantaged and aging people.
  • The traditional bridge is often priced based on the number of teeth involved. They cost between "$500-$3,000 or more per unit or $1,500-$6,000 or more total for a three-unit bridge, but they average about $700-$1,500 per unit or $2,100-$4,500 for a three-unit bridge. A four-unit bridge can cost $2,000-$12,000 or more."
  • Traditional bridge are normally durable for five to 15 years.
  • The global dental crowns and bridges market was valued at USD 2,504.8 million in 2017 and its foreseen to reach USD 4,363.8 million by 2025.

Research strategy

To provide the market size of the third solution (traditional bridge) in the US and globally, The team started by searching for pre-compiled reports on the market size. We searched through different reports such as Allied Market Research, Transparency Market Research, and Grand View Research, from our search we found that traditional bridges dominate the dental crown and bridge market globally. We were also able to find the crown and bridge market size. Unfortunately, we could not find any market size report on the segment.

Next, we attempted to find the size of the global traditional bridges market, we searched for information on the amount traditional bridges take up. We examined market research sources, industry-specific publications and expert commentary on the topic, hoping to locate segmentation charts, graphs or mentions of traditional bridge market share, but no relevant information could be located. Regional market share information was available, but information on the market share of the traditional bridge market couldn't be determined.

Finally, the team attempted to calculate the market size using the average cost of a traditional bridge, and the number of traditional bridge procedures that happen in the US and on a global level, yearly. Industry publications such as the Dentistry Journal were searched, as well as orthodontist and dentist associations such as the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists, but the second data point couldn't be found. We managed to find the average cost of traditional bridge procedure, but the market size couldn't be calculated because it was unclear how many traditional bridge procedures occur yearly, or how many people have traditional bridge implants, either in the US or globally.
