According to studies, tooth decay, and gum disease affect 12%–13% of people, which is what drives the market expansion for oral care products.

The increasing prevalence of dental disorders among adults and children, as well as the growing awareness of cosmetic dental treatment that aids in enhancing aesthetics and preserving fresh breath, are the primary factors driving demand for oral care products.

The availability of several 3D-based videos and graphics at dental spa clinics has helped in providing a luxurious experience to patients. Consumers in the United Kingdom have begun to take preventive measures as a result of rising expenditure on oral healthcare, which has increased the demand for effective oral care products. As a result, people have begun to place a premium on maintaining their oral health, resulting in an increase in demand for high-quality oral care products and fueling market growth.

People prefer to buy products online rather than in stores or pharmacies. The online sales channel also provides numerous benefits to consumers, such as low-cost products and free shipping, which is a significant growth-inducing factor.

COVID-19 had not majorly impacted the UK oral care market because several products, such as sensitive toothpaste, are required daily.

There has been an increase in consumer demand for toothpaste brands such as Oral Care, Sensodyne, and many innovative products on the market. Consumer purchasing power, availability of oral care products, competitive pricing, convenience, and health awareness continue to boost oral care product sales.
