What is Preventive Dentistry?
In Japan, a dentist may be regarded as a place to cure cavities and periodontal diseases, or to fix teeth alignment.
However, when the subjective symptoms appear, it is already in the middle stage of a cavity or periodontal disease. It will be required to remove a large part of the tooth, or in the worst case, it may be needed to extract the tooth.
In order to protect your precious teeth, dentistry for prevention is more critical than repairment.
In Sweden, a developed country of dental hygiene, the people who aged over 80 generally maintain more than 20 of their own teeth. It is significantly related to a high awareness of preventive dentistry. Over 80 percent of adult and almost 100 percent of children of the citizen regularly take dental examinations regularly.
Taking regular dental examinations is the most important.
