NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The European markets, as defined in this report, include Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg) and Scandinavia (Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland). The U.S. and European overdenture markets include overdentures, dental implant bars and attachments. Overdentures are segmented into implant supported (non-splinted) overdentures, removable implant bar overdentures and fixed-hybrid overdentures. There are also telescopic overdentures, of which 99% of cases are made in Germany. Dental implant bars are segmented by fabrication process and material type.
It should be noted that the overdenture segment is in itself an overview of the overall market, as the market values for implant bars and attachments are integrated into that of overdentures. As a result, the three market values will not be accumulated throughout the report to derive overall market values, as that would create artificially larger market sizes.

The report analyzes and evaluates the current state of the market including existing and potential markets, product average selling prices, and unit volumes. The report also highlights the opportunities and potential hazards involved, and presents strategies for successfully navigating the market landscape. Furthermore, it seeks to identify the trends and technologies that will affect the future of each market segment and prepares an unbiased critical assessment of such market drivers and limiters based on our "ground up" approach, which includes primary and secondary research methods.The overdenture market is highly dependent on the dental implant market, as implants are a key component when completing overdenture prostheses. As patient awareness of dental implants increases across the U.S. and Europe, overdentures will increasingly penetrate the denture market and cannibalize market share from conventional dentures.
The U.S. market experienced a higher growth rate compared to the European market due to the better economic conditions. The high unemployment rate in some countries in Europe contributed to these trends. The German market's economy was comparatively less affected by the recession and experienced an increase in growth rate; this helped the country to maintain its lead over the U.S. and other European markets.
The increasing awareness of the variety of dental implant treatments is the most significant driver of the overdentures market. Patients are becoming increasingly educated about the variety of implant restorations that are available on the market through mass educational campaigns by leading manufacturers. Patients have a growing database of information available to them about the most suitable implant treatments for highly aesthetic restorations.
CAD/CAM systems are well established in the U.S. and Europe, particularly in the implant bar market. Dental laboratories have been quick to adopt CAD/CAM technology to assist in fabricating suprastructures efficiently and achieving high levels of marginal fit. Likewise, CAD/CAM manufacturers are continuously expanding the ways in which dental laboratories can incorporate the technology in fabricating their restorations, and increasing the portfolio of dental prostheses that can be milled. The improved efficiency of what tends to be a very arduous casting method is made much simpler through the automated process of CAD/CAM systems.
