Overview:

The 3rd quarter 2009 edition of AFG Research’s U.S. Market Snapshot Series™ for Digital Impression System provides an overview of the digital impression system market. Based on data collected as part of AFG Research’s dental omnibus (OMNIDEN™) from 264 dentists across the US, this report will aid dental manufacturers in identifying their market share, awareness, favorability, perceived value for money as well as the equipment usage and purchase intentions among US dentists.

In the “digital age” of dentistry, some specialists perceive digital impression systems as the “next big thing” in the industry. If those systems are able to create and exceed the conventional techniques as well as be useful for implant impressions, the digital impression market might definitively be one to watch in the coming years:

  • “Seeing all the positive effects that digital dentistry has had on our practices, it’s time for all dentists to begin to take a serious look at the “next big thing” in the digital world of dentistry – digital impression systems”, Clinical impression of digital impressions, Dental Economics, March 2009.
  • “Within the past two years, two companies have been working and now distributing machines capable of taking a digital impression and fabricating a working model for the laboratory technician. Cadent and 3M, using very different technologies, have now entered the U.S. dental market with their machines. We are proving that they can compete with conventional impression system to make lab models that can create restorations equal to or exceeding the quality of conventional techniques”, Clinical impression of digital impressions, Dental Economics, March 2009.
  • "In the not too distant future, we believe that digital impressions will be common in many dental practices, embraced in a similar fashion as we have embraced digital radiography”, Clinical impression of digital impressions”, Dental Economics, March 2009.

The manufacturers’ positions, in terms of market share, are not completely reflected when it comes to favorability scores and perceived value for money as a challenger outperforms the two main manufacturers.
