Market Definition and segmentation

The dental implants market is categorized by placement, materials and procedure.

By placement: Placement of dental implants depends on the condition of the jaw bone.

- Endosseous Implants: Implants that are surgically placed directly into the bone to replace the root of the tooth. These implants can be either root form or plate form. - Sub-periostal Implants: Metal framework placed on the bone below the gum tissue with connectors exposed above the gums ready for restoration. These implants are used when the jaw bone is not in a condition to support an endosseous implant i.e. not enough height or width. - Transosteal Implants: These implants are placed only in the mandible (lower jaw), which involves surgical placement of the two metal rods below the chin, through the jawbone until exposed in the mouth for restoration.

By Material: The materials used for implants depend on the capability to osseointegration (ability to bind with the human bone).

- Titanium/Titanium Alloys: A strong, light weight, silver-grayish colored metal with proven abilities to osseointegration. Titanium and its alloys are the mostly widely used materials for implants. - Zirconia: Zirconium oxide or zirconia is a white powdered metal which has been widely used as crowns and bridges due to their aesthetic properties. Recently it has also been used as an alternative to titanium implants.

By Procedure: The procedure of the dental implants depends on the condition of the bone (the height and width). The implants mentioned below are endosseous type of implants.

- Root form dental implants: Root form implants are screw shaped implants which resemble the root of a tooth. These implants are surgically placed in the jawbone to replace one or multiple teeth in the maxilla (upper jaw) or mandible (lower jaw). - Plate from dental implants: An endosseous type of implant, the name of which is derived from the blade like structure that is embedded into the jaw bone. This kind of implant is used in the areas where the jaw bone is too thin to support the root form implants. The use of blade from implants is very rare compared to the root form implants. - Ramus frame implants are special plate form implants placed in the mandible used in cases with severe bone deterioration. The process involves a surgical placement of a thin metallic frame that of the shape of the mandible, into the jaw bone in three different areas; the left and right back area near the wisdom teeth and the front side near the chin.
