[Questionnaire survey of patients and dentists] Recognition gap between patients and dentists about “occlusion treatment” is highlighted
~ “Questionnaire survey on” meshing ” ~

The medical corporation Yugokai (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, Chairman: Koichi Aida), which operates the Takanawa Clinic
(, is targeting people undergoing dental treatment and dentists ” We conducted a survey on engagement. As a result, about half of the subjects who were undergoing dental treatment thought that their bite was bad. On the other hand, many dentists were confident in the treatment and explanation of occlusion. It was suggested that dentists may not be able to provide sufficient information to the general public regarding dental practice. -Survey background-
Consultations for orthodontic treatment and aesthetic treatment aimed at improving appearance are increasing, probably due to the
reconsideration of the way of thinking about wearing masks as a countermeasure against new coronavirus infections. In dental treatment, it is important not only to improve appearance and pain, but also to maintain a healthy condition, but “correct bite” is an especially important factor. If there is a problem with the occlusion, the treated teeth will have problems again, the teeth will be worn down and you will not be able to chew properly, the risk of
temporomandibular joint disorder will increase, and you will not be able to masticate your food sufficiently, which will put a strain on your stomach and headaches. , Stiff shoulders, deterioration of posture, etc., may cause various problems throughout the body (* 1). Therefore, we conducted an awareness survey on “occlusion” for both people undergoing dental treatment and dentists. *1: Reference “Japan Orthodontic Association”

Main results of the “questionnaire survey on occlusion”
– Respondents undergoing dental treatment About their own “occlusion” – Approximately 30% of people had their own occlusion examined in detail
[Image 1:×450.png] In response to the question, “What kind of treatment (examination) are you currently receiving? (Multiple answers allowed),” caries (59.7%), “regular checkups (including PMTC, etc.) (31.0%),” The answers were periodontal disease (28.4%) and orthodontic treatment (10.3%). In response to the question, “Have you ever been examined about the state of your bite?”, about 30% answered, “I have been examined in considerable detail (27.6%).” Many people were more detailed, saying, “I have been asked if I had any subjective symptoms such as ‘Is there any discomfort’ during treatment (48.6%)?” I found that I was not aware that I had been examined.
■ About half of the people think that their bite is bad
[Image 2:×450.png] In response to the question, “Do you think your bite is good?” On the other hand, 36.9% of the respondents said that they thought it was a little bad, and 8.9% said that they thought it was very bad. I was. ■ Approximately 60% of people want to receive occlusion treatment
[Image 3:×450.png] When asked, “Have you ever received treatment for occlusion?” to those who answered “I think it’s a little bad” or “I think it’s very bad” in the previous question, “Yes (35.1%)” “No” (64.9%)”, about 60% of the respondents answered that they had never received treatment while thinking that their bite was poor. When asked, “Do you want to undergo occlusion treatment (re-treatment) in the future?” to those who answered “No” to this question, more than 60% of the respondents answered “Yes (63.3%).” Answer. It turns out that a great many people are interested in treating their occlusion. – Dentists’ Answers About Recognition of “Occlusion” – Most dentists are confident about occlusion examination, diagnosis, and treatment From here, we asked dentists about learning opportunities related to occlusion.
[Image 4:×450.png] In response to the question, “Did you have the opportunity to learn about occlusion at university?” Although I had the opportunity to learn from a dentist, I can see that there is a gap in the content.
[Image 5:×450.png] Approximately 90% of the respondents answered “yes (92.3%)” to the question, “Are you confident about your occlusion examination, diagnosis, and treatment?” is coming. However, when asked, “Do you know that a bad bite affects your whole body?” divided into -Through this survey-In this survey, only about 30% of those undergoing dental treatment have had a detailed examination of their occlusion. In addition, nearly half of the people thought that their own bite was bad, and although they were aware that their bite was bad, it was found that few people had received treatment for their bite. On the other hand, a survey of dentists revealed that 92% of dentists were confident about their occlusal examination, diagnosis, and treatment. From this result, it is possible that dentists are not able to provide sufficient information, even though they have a certain amount of confidence in their treatment and explanations regarding occlusion. However, the lack of explanation on the part of the dentist is considered to be a difficult problem to solve from the patient’s point of view. Koichi Aida, the chairman of the medical corporation Yugokai, which conducted this survey, shared information that the general public should know about occlusion on “Camsil”
( I’m sending it in the media called.
[Image 6:×145.png] Occupation media Kamsir URL: “Kamushiru” also has a window where you can directly consult a dentist on LINE for those who have concerns about occlusion. Through these efforts, the Takanawa Clinic Group aims to bridge the information gap between the general public and dentists, thereby contributing to the health of as many people as possible. ■ From Chairman Hikaru Aida
[Image 7:×1044.jpg] What is always important to me is to investigate the causes of illnesses and troubles and explain them to patients. This is because if patients cannot know the cause, they cannot choose actions to prevent or prevent recurrence regardless of the treatment they receive. When talking to patients, I find that many of them have received dental treatment in the past, but very few of them have received a thorough explanation of why the problem occurred. Everyone is surprised when I tell you the causal relationship up to the present in order. There is a long-standing science behind why diseases occur, and if we understand that, we can predict what will happen in the future. On the contrary, you can see how you can avoid the problem. However, if you can’t convey that knowledge in an easy-to-understand manner, you can’t protect everyone. In particular, as far as problems in the dental field are concerned, information about occlusion is almost unknown to the general public. Needless to say, it is important to be able to bite anything firmly with a problem-free bite. It is obvious that occlusion affects the body 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, as much as “brushing your teeth every day”. However, I feel that there is almost no information about “occlusion” that is being disseminated to the general public in the world. In recent years, it has become increasingly clear how the oral environment affects not only the mouth but also the whole body, but this information has not reached many people. This is the current situation. It may be vague, such as “It seems that periodontal disease is bad for the body” or “Can’t you live longer without teeth?” For example, it is known that intractable skin diseases, such as palmoplantar pustulosis, are caused by oral problems. It is also becoming increasingly clear that stomach ailments such as irritable bowel syndrome may be associated with multiple dental problems such as occlusion, breathing patterns, and dental filling problems. Of course, the connection between the mouth and the body is very important not only for intractable diseases but also for general health promotion. It is becoming more and more recognized that the intestinal environment can be adjusted, but even dental professionals who look at the mouth every day do not fully understand that the bacteria in the mouth greatly affect the balance of intestinal bacteria. It’s the world. Through this media called “Camsil”, I would like to provide the latest information from the medical field, and explain and tell you what you can do for your health on a daily basis so that you can put it into practice. ■ Career
