The dental scalers market is expected to grow from US$ 918.98 million in 2022 to US$ 1,309.91 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2022 to 2028.  

An increasing number of dental practitioners and initiatives for awareness about oral health drive the market growth. Moreover, demand for ultrasonic scalers is likely to emerge as a significant future trend in the market during the forecast period. However, the high cost of dental treatment hampers the dental scalers market growth. Technological advances have led to the demand for ultrasonic scalers. It relies on low-frequency soundwaves to vibrate against your teeth, effectively removing difficult tartar buildup. There are two types of ultrasonic scalers. The magnetostrictive model operates at ~25,000-30,000 cycles per second, the head moving in a circular motion. The piezoelectric scaler moves at 28,000-36,000 cycles per second while the tip vibrates back and forth against the tooth.

Benefits of ultrasound dental scalers over traditional scalers include lesser pain compared to traditional scaling tools. Sensitive sum tissues experience reduced trauma with ultrasound dental scalers. The dental scalers are more effective at removing tartar buildup than a manual scraper. The spray tip allows cleaning debris off teeth as the dentist works. Sprayers can administer water or an antibacterial agent efficiently. Surface stains can be removed in the process while giving teeth a whiter sheen. The time taken to remove the tartar buildup using an ultrasound dental scaler is less than that of a traditional scaler. These scalers require less water during dental scaling procedures
