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.

Malocclusion refers to the misalignment of teeth that can lead to serious oral health complications. Malocclusion is commonly hereditary, but it can also occur due to other reasons i.e. childhood habits such as thumb sucking, pacifier use beyond age 3, extra teeth or lost teeth, ill-fitting dental fillings, and jaw tumors. There are three major manifestations of malocclusion i.e. Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3. Class 1 malocclusion is the most common among all types. Treatment for malocclusion depends upon the severity of the condition. Treatment of malocclusion generally includes removal of teeth to correct overcrowding, braces to correct the position of the teeth, wires or plates to stabilize the jaw bone, reshaping, bonding, or capping of teeth, and surgery to reshape or shorten the jaw.
It is noted that rising prevalence of malocclusion is the key factors driving the malocclusion market. According to a study published in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health in 2017, it was found that prevalence of malocclusion in Shanghai is 83.9%. It is also reported that the prevalence of deep overbite was the highest in children with malocclusion i.e. 63.7%.
Improvement in reimbursement scenario, and the rising trend of cosmetic dentistry are also fuelling the market growth. The techniques used for the repairing various irregularities such as discoloration, chipped teeth, and misshapen teeth or missing teeth are greatly impacting the growth of the market.
However, lack of technological awareness, and slow adoption rate in low-income countries may strongly hinder the growth of the market.
