In recent years there has been a significant increase in the demand for dental care worldwide. In part due to an aging population but also due to an increased awareness of the importance of proper dental care. The demand for dental prostheses like crowns, bridges, implants and cosmetic dentistry has increased significantly as more people are able to afford the costly dental procedures. Overall, analysts expect continued growth in the industry at least through 2016. The demand is expected to be the greatest in developing countries, specifically China and India where tremendous economic growth has already occurred.
As demand for care has grown, so has the number of dental clinics and thus an increase in demand for dental equipment and ultimately dental equipment manufacturers. Research by Marketsandmarkets, a global market research and consulting company, indicates the industry will grow to a value of $6.1 billion by 2016.
With many years of experience in the dental industry, Willemin-Macodel machining centers continue to provide solutions for the manufacturing process. Dental implants, screws, bridges, orthodontic brackets, ties, and bar attachments are just a few of the many items being manufactured for the dental industry with Willemin-Macodel machines.
