Our mouth is full of a harmful microorganism (bacteria) such as streptococci, anaerobic bacillus and aerobic bacillus that can cause oral (dental) infections. Tooth abscess and gum disease are the most common bacterial infection observed in our mouth (teeth). A tooth abscess is a collection of pus that contains dead tissue, live and dead bacteria and white blood cells. Due to a tooth abscess, the tissue which are present within the teeth are swelled and cause a painful toothache. Gum disease can be defined as the formation of sticky colorless plaque on the teeth with the combination of bacteria and mucus particle (together). Signs and symptoms of bacterial infection(dental infection) in mouth includes breath odor, pain when chewing, a sensitivity of the teeth to hot or cold, swollen area of the upper or lower jaw and swollen gland of the neck. Dental infection can be diagnosed by dental x ray. Risk factor for dental infection includes smoking, diabetes patient and genetic susceptibility. Dental infection can be treated with antibiotic medication, analgesic drug and surgical procedures. The number of smokers and prevalence of diabetic cases is increasing rapidly across the world. People who have smoking habit and those who are suffering from diabetes are at high risk of getting dental infections. Thus the above mentioned factor accentuates the global for dental infection control products. However lack of awareness among people might restrict the demand of the global dental infection control products .
Geographically, North America dominates the global for dental infection control products due to high prevalence rate of dental infection (15 to 25 age group people) followed by Europe.Moreover, government initiative also further accentuates the growth in these regions. Asia-Pacific and RoW hold the third and fourth position in the global due to lack of awareness among people about dental infection.
Major players contributing the global share of dental infection control product includes GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Abbott, Merck and Co., Cipla Laboratories, Novartis AG, Bristol Meyer Squibb, Reddy’s Lab and Elli Lilly and Company.
