Whether a dentist is a doctor or not is still up for debate, but what is for sure is that dentists play an important role in the modern day health industry as anyone with a recessed wisdom tooth will attest to. Teeth form the basis of nutrition since a healthy mouth is important for being able to eat a variety of different foods. The history of dentistry traces human history, with the first treatments thought to have started just as humans transitioned from being hunter gatherers to farmers, as diets high in carbohydrates led to higher instances of tooth decay as well.
Modern day dentistry has of course evolved from simply using flint tools to cure ailments. What we know as dentistry today started out in 17th century France as a field that used tools borrowed from jewelers, watchmakers, and barbers. Now, the global dental tools market was worth $6.2 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.7% until 2030 with a final value of $13.31 billion according to research from Precedence Research. The fastest growing market for these instruments will be Asia Pacific, according to the research firm, while North America accounted for the largest share of the revenue pie in 2020 which stood at 38.5%. The growth of Asia Pacific will be nearly twice as fast as the global market, as Precedence Research believes that the region will grow at a strong 14% CAGR.
