The medical industry is growing as the aging population is on the rise. The importance of dental health is in the spotlight as it can change the quality of our lives, and that is why the dental medical industry is garnering interest as a promising industry. In particular, there is a boom in the global research for implants, artificial bones and biomaterials. Currently, South Korea is heavily reliant on Japan and foreign nations for dental materials and equipment.
On this week's Korea 4.0, we visit a company that has succeeded in localizing dental equipment and materials. This company is the world's first to develop technology to make artificial bones and bone graft. We see the present status of Korea's dental medical industry and see what kind of measures are necessary for localizing dental materials and equipment.
