Dental irrigation, also known as oral irrigation, is used as an alternative for flossing in case of people with sensitive gums, diabetes, orthodontic appliances, or people who cannot tolerate flossing. It helps to reduce bacteria and plaque and control gingivitis. People with dental implants need to take special care while cleaning their teeth, and therefore, require dental devices such as irrigators for oral care. Dental irrigators release a stream of pressurized water to clean the teeth, gums, and oral cavity preventing plaque formation.
The global Dental Irrigation Devices Market is projected to witness strong growth during the forecast period. This is attributed to launch of new products by dental irrigation devices market players, increase in the prevalence of dental diseases, and rise in demand for technological advanced devices in dentistry. According to the Global Burden of Disease Study, in 2016, oral diseases affected nearly half of the world’s population and periodontal diseases & dental caries are the most common dental problems.
