Millennium Research Group's (MRG) Marketrack service reveals that the top 5 dental implant manufacturers grew their collective market share over 2006 from 66.6% in Q1 to 78.7% in Q3. Interestingly, price increases among leading manufacturers have not deterred increased physician adoption of leading brands.

"Dentists are increasingly purchasing premium implants to insure against failure and other long-term problems," says Chris Shutsa, Analyst at MRG. "This trend goes hand-in-hand with a massive investment in education by leading players like Nobel Biocare and Zimmer, as dentists increasingly realize the benefits of spending on quality."

The top 5 competitors have included Nobel Biocare, Straumann, Zimmer Dental, 3i, Astra Tech and Lifecore Biomedical Inc. Other companies captured in market share data include BioHorizons Inc., Bicon Dental Implants, Camlog, Blue Sky Bio, Osteo-Implant Corporation, IMTEC, Intra-Lock, Thommen Medical, Basic Dental Implants, Dentsply Friadent Ceramed, Innova Sybron Dental Specialities, OCO Biomedical, Tatum Surgical, BioLok, Stabledent, ADI, PerioSeal, ACE Surgical Supply, Northern Implants, Renew Biocare, Dentatus, and MIS Implants.
