Key Findings While Studying Augmented and Virtual Reality in Dentistry Market:
Augmented reality technology is widely favored in dental practices, especially in dental implants, craniofacial surgery and orthognathic surgery. During these surgeries, AR focuses on providing more visibility of the surgical field. It is therefore primarily used to display dynamic navigation systems in dental implantology
As for the components, hardware takes a large market share due to the launch of various devices such as glasses and headsets used by big players in AR and VR. These devices simulate patient responses, driving demand for hardware components in dentistry
Dental Education/Training held a significant market share in augmented and virtual reality in the dental market. Demand for AR and VR in education and training has continued to grow amid the COVID-19 pandemic as restrictions to prevent the spread of the pandemic have provided students with limited learning opportunities
North America and Asia Pacific have a significant market share due to the widespread adoption of VR and AR technology in countries like the US, Japan, China and Australia. For example, Wikitude and Cybernet have announced their partnership to promote AR technology in the Japanese market and promote market growth in the APAC region
Europe is estimated to witness the highest CAGR over the forecast period. This is due to the boom in the dental industry
Computer assisted procedures are becoming increasingly popular in various areas of dentistry. Hence, the increasing role of AR and VR technologies in dental practices is driving the market growth. For example, Magic Leap targeted the enterprise market for AR rather than the consumer market. In addition, the company has also configured a vertical orientation that makes it easier to navigate the AR environment

What are the current trends in the market for augmented and virtual reality in dentistry?
The dental industry is constantly evolving due to the constant innovation of technologies. The number of dental surgeries performed annually is increasing exponentially as cases of dental problems increase. Dental problems in the geriatric population are common. In addition, the high prevalence of dental problems in children is increasing due to unhealthy eating habits. Awareness of oral care has also increased over the past decade. All these reasons have boosted the growth of the dental industry worldwide.
The turn of computerized technology has significantly impacted the dental industry, the wide use of technological tools like AR and VR is proving to be very beneficial for its growth. Widely recognized in dental education and training, simulation technology allows instructors to demonstrate various dental techniques to improve students’ manual dexterity. The technology offers high precision during the learning phase through the direct participation of each student.
In addition, anxiety and fear of pain are very common in patients before dental surgery. In such scenarios, VR helps doctors transport patients to an artificial environment with pleasant views to distract their minds. In addition, if a device breaks down, it is not advisable to wait for a professional to repair it, as it could be dangerous for patients. AR technology allows technicians to remotely guide dentists through their headsets so they can easily repair dental equipment.
It is not inappropriate to say that the future is here as AR and VR will definitely change the way dentists and patients live.
Now, however, researchers have also developed artificial skin that allows patients to feel environments created by VR and AR technologies. A skin-like material stimulates a far more realistic sense of touch when worn than current haptic feedback technologies. In the next step, a fully wearable prototype for use in VR and AR will be developed.

What is the impact of COVID-19 on the Augmented and Virtual Reality in Dentistry market?
The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in lockdowns, social distancing and quarantines. However, during these troubled times, AR and VR technologies have proven to be beneficial to the healthcare sector, including dentistry. This was due to the main components of these technologies such as sensors, displays and embedded electronic devices that have enabled a virtual and realistic environment for the users. This enabled convenient communication between patients and dentists.
In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has also changed educational approaches in dental facilities. During the pandemic, access to cadavers had become a challenge, encouraging providers to innovate their teaching methods. This has reshaped the virtual and augmented reality market in dental education and training.
