Dental Caries Market set to witness surge in demand over the forecast period 2017-2025

The term ‘dental caries’ implies cavities and tooth decay. Tooth decay primarily occurs due to bacteria that include Streptococcus sobrinus and various mutans. These bacteria convert glucose or fructose present in the mouth to acids such as lactic acid. The tooth enamel gets destructed or damaged due to acids produced by bacteria. If the decay is not removed at the right time, bacteria may get into a tooth producing higher amount of acids. Common symptoms of tooth decay include difficulty in eating and pain at a moderate level. Poor cleaning of teeth is a major factor that contributes to dental caries. Saliva acts as the key source for breakdown of minerals. In order to decrease the saliva production, certain anti-histamines and anti-depressants are used. Dental caries can be controlled or prevented by undertaking certain measures that include brushing teeth twice a day and having diet that is low in sugar. Dental caries can cause bad breath. If dental caries increases, it can spread from a tooth to different soft tissues surrounding the tooth.

The dental caries market in countries such as China, India, and Brazil is projected to expand at a high growth rate during the forecast period, due to increase in awareness among people about oral health and about the necessity to treat dental caries at an early stage.
