Root Canal Irrigator Market: Introduction

Irrigation is a key part of a successful root canal treatment. Root canal irrigants have important functions, which could vary according to the irrigant used. It reduces friction between the instrument and dentine, improves the cutting effectiveness of the files, dissolves tissue, cools the file and tooth, and has a washing effect and an antimicrobial/antibiofilm effect. The irrigators are the medium to reach out those areas of the root canal wall not touched by mechanical instrumentation.

Read Report Overview -

In order to effectively clean and disinfect the root canal system, an irrigant should be able to disinfect and penetrate dentin and its tubules, offer long-term antibacterial effect (substantivity), remove the smear layer, and be nonantigenic, nontoxic, and noncarcinogenic. Additionally, it should have no adverse effects on dentin or the sealing ability of filling materials. Moreover, it should be relatively inexpensive, convenient to apply, and cause no tooth discoloration. Other desirable properties of an ideal irrigant include the ability to dissolve pulp tissue and inactivate endotoxins.

Irrigants currently used during cleaning and shaping can be divided into antibacterial and decalcifying agents or their combinations

Key Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities of Global Root Canal Irrigator Market

Tooth cavity is the major reason for root canal procedure. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than half (57%) of the adolescents aged 12 to 19 have had a cavity in their permanent teeth and about 90% adults aged 20 and older have had at least one cavity. The factor is expected to fuel the demand for root canal irrigators across the globe.

High cost of root canal is likely to hamper the growth of the root canal irrigator market in developed regions such as North America and Europe. Several dental insurance policies at least partially cover endodontic treatment.

Rise in demand for root canal irrigators due to increase in global population, which is more prone to root canal due to high use of fatty and starch-rich diets and fast foods present significant opportunities in the global market. Greater emphasis on restorative dental procedures and rise in safety and success of root canal treatment are expected to boost the growth of the global root canal irrigator market.

North America to Capture Major Share of Global Root Canal Irrigator Market

North America accounted for major share of the global root canal irrigator market in 2020. According to the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), 25 million root canals are performed globally each year and an average 41,000 root canals are performed each day. Hence, at least 287,000 root canal procedures are completed during a week. The assurance of safe root canal procedures among patients leads to more people opting for the procedure in the region. These factors are likely to contribute to the growth of the root canal irrigator market in North America.

The market in Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period. China and India are anticipated to lead the market in the region in the next few years due to the fast-growing health care sector and large unmet needs. Countries in Southeast Asia such as China, India, and Japan are expected to contribute to the growth of the market in Asia Pacific. Expansion of the health care industry in Asia Pacific is likely to drive the root canal irrigator market in the region.
