Available languages


1.1 Definition and scope of study

A dental implant is an artificial root made of metal, mainly titanium or zirconia, implanted in the jawbone to replace the root of a natural tooth. Dental implants are divided into premium and non-premium dental implants. Depending on the end-user, the market is divided into dental practices, hospitals, dental laboratories, dental schools and research establishments.

Although implants have traditionally been manufactured abroad due to lower costs, increased domestic competition in the UK has put pressure on prices, fuelling demand and increasing volumes sold.

These elements could reduce the cost of procedures and broaden insurance company coverage.
