Global Digital Dental Impression Devices Market Size (2024 to 2029)

As per our report, the global digital dental impression devices market will grow at a CAGR of 6.44% during the forecast period. As a result, the global revenue is estimated to reach USD 2.73 billion by 2029 from USD 2 billion in 2024.

Dental Digital impression or 3-D intraoral scanning is the new method of capturing a mouth replica. A virtual scan of teeth which makes a map of it through a computer-generated 3D virtual model of the complex and soft tissues of the mouth perfumed by dentists using lasers and other optical scanning devices is called a digital impression, a better technology than an X-ray. This technology uses a wand-like tool coupling to computers and advanced software. A dentist can make a virtual model of the complex and soft tissue in the mouth. After mouth scanning, a dentist can soon send the digital impression to a lab where the crown, bridge, dentures, and retainers are made accordingly. Besides, a digital impression is eco-friendly as it reduces the demand for disposable impression material and plastic trays.


The rise in dental diseases and attached complications primarily drives the growth of the digital dental impression devices market.

Health-related awareness of oral care, fast adoption of advanced technology, government healthcare programs, training needed for dental implant development, living conditions, and cosmetic surgeries are other significant factors propelling the market demand. In addition, the increased geriatric population, growing dental tourism in emerging markets, and rising dental care spending further accelerate the global digital dental impression devices market. Owing to technological advancements, an impression of mouth can be digitally taken without a cause of gagging or the need to retake impressions since digital impressions help dentists collect all the information regarding the problems, which might be in the bridge, crown, braces, or any other dental appliance or treatment.

The various benefits provided by digital impressions are contributing to global market growth.

These are providing comfort using 3D scanning, which is often more comfortable for patients than traditional impressions without sensitive gag reflexes; good quality, which not only limits the margin of error and distortion but also helps in the better fitting of the crown, bridge, or other appliance due to the detailed information provided by digital impressions, compared to traditional prints; cost-effective, providing the exact cost for traditional impressions and 3D scanning to the patient; and more ideal in placements of dental implants, especially when combined with digital x-rays.

Instead of sending a traditional imprint or stone model by ordinary mail, dentists can email the virtual impression to the lab thanks to digital optical impressions, which significantly improve speed, productivity, and accuracy. Additionally, same-day dental restorations can be completed using digital impressions, which expedites patient care and eliminates the need for additional office visits.

Other benefits of digital impressions include Improved print and image quality for perfectly fitting restorations, a more comfortable and less anxious experience for patients and the dental team, less time spent in the chair by the patient, restored scanning of teeth, completion of the procedure in just three to five minutes, saving space, elimination of material inaccuracies for fewer restoration errors, eliminating the need for disposable plastic trays and printing materials, leading to Ecological Dentistry under green aspects, electronically stored digital printing, aiding in efficient record keeping and fostering a paperless environment. Also, due to the rise in patient awareness due to new technologies, dental impressions make patients more involved and knowledgeable about the treatment since their impressions can be seen beside the cabinet.

Increasing demand for digital equipment for easy and accurate treatment experiences favors the market in the coming years.

Key players in the dental impression market focus on new technologies that allow extensive use of intraoral and extraoral devices; cone-beam computed technology and 3D face scanners. Therefore, digital dental impression usage in dental implants is an excellent development opportunity. In addition, the growing number of dentists and other dental professionals using digital dental impression devices supports the global market.


More expenditure on installing and procuring digital dental impression devices and more skilled professionals are needed to maintain the market's growth. In addition, weak healthcare systems and infrastructure in underdeveloped economies countries will interrupt the growth of the digital dental impression market.

Global Digital Dental Impression Devices Market Analysis By Product Type

The optical wand technology segment is the leading segment in the market. The market growth is caused due to the increase in the aging population and government expenditure on oral healthcare across various regions. However, even with the aid of sophisticated optical microscopes, scientists have created materials specifically for next-generation electronics that are so small that they cannot be distinguished from one another when they are close together and do not reflect enough light to reveal fine details like colors.

Confocal microscopic imaging technology is estimated to record the highest revenue share in the market since its focused laser beam excites the molecules at a point in the sample, leading to its wide usage for fluorescence imaging in the life sciences. It uses lasers and fluorescence to create a three-dimensional image of a sample, whose advances in illumination sources, fluorescent probes, detectors, optics, and sample preparation techniques not only offer improvements in different combinations of speed, depth, and resolution but also cost-efficient, leading to its high adoption, globally.

Global Digital Dental Impression Devices Market Analysis By End-User

The dental clinics segment is considered the leading segment of the digital dental impression devices market. The increase in the patient pool towards dental clinics is fuelling market growth. Most dental clinics use digital scanning for general dentistry, restorative procedures, and orthodontics, such as 3D panoramic x-rays, helping the oral surgeons as a guide in the correct placement of dental implants. In addition, the growing need for digital equipment, an aging population, and medical tourism propel the digital dental impression devices market growth.


North America, followed by Europe, held the highest share in the global digital dental impression devices market in 2023, and the leading trend of these regions in the global market is likely to continue throughout the forecast period due to technological advancements, highly developed healthcare infrastructure, higher spending on healthcare, and favorable government policies. The North American market growth in the region is further driven by the increasing incidence of dental diseases, high consumer spending on dental care, and advancing healthcare infrastructure in healthcare.
