Craniomaxillofacial devices are used in the treatment and correction of injuries, diseases and defects occurring in areas like jaws, face, neck and head along with soft tissues present in the oral section and maxillofacial areas. This branch of medical requires specialization of both dentistry and medicine since these treatments require the application of both the arenas. There are a number of techniques applied for correcting various defects ad injuries which involves the role of many craniomaxillofacial devices.
The global market for craniomaxillofacial devices is estimated to witness a substantial compound annual growth rate (CAGR) the forecast period of 2016-2020. The rising improvement in the development works for bringing about three dimensional implants which prove to be effective in treating these issues has been the market driving factor for this. Growing demand for surgeries that result in minimal invasion has been successful in adding to the gain of this market. Apart from these, increasing number of incidents for accidents owing to the industrialization and urbanization and thus the growing need and demand for reconstructive surgeries providing effective results along with rising awareness have posed positive hike in this, hence leading to the expansion of the market industry for craniomaxillofacial devices.
There are a number of craniomaxillofacial devices used in surgeries for treating and correcting problems related to the craniomaxillofacial regions. These are divided into categories which belong to different segments including craniomaxillofacial (CMF) distraction, bone graft substitutes, cranial flap fixation, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) replacement, thoracic fixation and CMF plate and screw fixation. The most widely implemented segment is the TMJ replacement. These devices are used in surgeries related to replacement of prosthetic jaw. There are various applications in which these apply which include fractures, abnormalities, fused joints, arthritic conditions and degenerated joints. These devices are found to be helpful in facilitating the reduction of jaw pain, eating interferences and the capacity for opening mouth is also increased by these. Apart from these, metallic implants have also come up as a preferred option among the professionals and clients. The beneficial properties of these implants such as less corrosive nature and rigid physical support provision to the fractures. These also provide a cheaper section of the treating devices. The most widely used metals applied in CMF surgeries are titanium and its alloyed forms. These are light weighted, are non-reactive, provide strength to implants, have high acceptance for tissues and resistant to corrosion, which have made these a good choice.
Craniomaxillofacial devices encompass a range of corrective methods for craniomaxillofacial issues. Their wide utilization has given effective results, thus driving the market.
