Europe Dental Implants Market was valued at over USD 1.5 billion in 2019 and is expected to witness over 4.2% CAGR from 2020 to 2026.
Dental implants are surgical components used to support dental prothesis such as bridges, crown, dentures and facial prosthesis to act as orthodontic anchor. Modern dental implants use osseointegration, a biological process where bone fuses to the surface made of titanium and some ceramics. With growing prevalence of dental disorders, the demand for dental implants will surge in future.

History of dental implants take us back to ancient civilization and their contribution to implant development till time. Around 2500 BC, Egyptians tried stabilization of teeth that was periodontally involved in the use of ligature wire made of gold. Since the middle of 1600s, early emerging of implants was staged in European region with various substances. Wide range of substances were used during this time as implants, including silver capsules, corrugated porcelain and iridium tubes. Further, in 1940s, post type endosseous implant was developed by Formiggini, known as father of modern implantology and Zepponi. The spiral stainless-steel design of the implant allowed bone to grow into the metal. This spiral implant was constructed using a stainless wire on itself. Till 1970s, various implants were designed and marked the development of Ramus Blade endosseous implant known as synthetic third molar. It was made of surgical grade stainless steel. Therefore, with technological advancement there has been wide innovation in dental implants. The most recent innovation has involved the use of fluoride, growth factors, and antibiotics among others. The industry is also witnessing use of computer-aided technologies to manufacture superlative implants. With growing emphasis on research and collaborative efforts for development of implants among market players, the industry is posed to impel in the forthcoming years.
