Malocclusion is the misalignment of teeth. Malocclusion is most often hereditary, but it can also occur due to other reasons i.e. childhood habits such as thumb sucking, pacifier use beyond age 3, and others, extra teeth or lost teeth, ill-fitting dental fillings, and jaw tumors. There are three major classes of malocclusion i.e. Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3.
Increasing prevalence of malocclusion, favorable reimbursement scenario, and rising trend of cosmetic dentistry are the key factors driving the malocclusion market.
However, lack of technological awareness and complications associated with malocclusion treatment may hinder the growth of the market to an extent. The lack of technological awareness is mainly attributed to the slow adoption rate of new technology by the dentists.
