Prevention of tooth decay

We handle everything from fluorine application to infants to risk diagnosis by saliva test.

The risk of tooth decay varies depending on the genetic factors and the environment in the mouth, so we will propose the most suitable oral care for each.

It is not so good to leave cavities because deciduous teeth will eventually grow ...

① If the cavities of the deciduous teeth become deep, it may adversely affect the permanent teeth that are starting to be made underneath.

(2) If the deciduous teeth are left unplugged, there will be no space for permanent teeth to grow and the dentition will be poor.

③ If the deciduous teeth are not properly engaged, the growth of the jaw will be affected.

④ If the number of cavities increases in deciduous teeth, permanent teeth are also prone to cavities.

It plays an important role in the re-growth of permanent teeth.

If you intervene early, the growth and environment of your mouth will change, so please feel free to contact us.

There is a kids room where you can relax as much as possible so that the dentist does not have a scary image.

"No dentist will see you because you're going wild."

"I don't want to be suppressed and treated"

Even if you have any problems, we will have you get used to it while having fun with your child and proceed with the treatment.

* If urgent treatment or parents wish, we will suppress the treatment.

Saliva tests have been made at 500 yen to the elementary school!

Mouth treatment that can be done from 3 years old

It is a mouthpiece correction that can be done even for 3 to 5 years old using a mouthpiece called Mushield.
Until now, we have recommended follow-up observations such as "Let's see what happens" for the socket (opposite occlusion) during the deciduous dentition period (3 to 5 years old).

However, it is said that the rate at which the opposite occlusion heals spontaneously by regenerating into permanent teeth is only 6%.
Therefore, by using "Mushield TM", which enables early initial treatment from the deciduous dentition stage,

You can have beautiful and healthy teeth as your child grows.

Mushield Aligning teeth not only looks beautiful, but it also helps to balance the whole body, which has a great effect on athletic ability and posture.

Early initial treatment is recommended for the healthy growth of your child.
Mushield TM is an early initial treatment developed by Dr. Munemitsu Yanagisawa that can be corrected from the deciduous dentition stage.

Cost 66,000 yen (tax included) Adjustment fee 1,100 yen / time (tax included) Treatment period 1 to 2 years

What is oral dysfunction?

Eating, speaking, and other functions are underdeveloped or not acquired successfully

It refers to a condition in which there is no causative disease that causes obvious feeding dysfunction and specialized involvement is required.

Those who correspond to two or more of the items of "eating", "speaking", and "others" on the check sheet presented by the academic society are covered by insurance and are considered to be oral dysfunction.

What is MFT (Muscle Function Therapy)?

The habits of sucking fingers, biting nails, breathing in the mouth, sticking cheeks, biting lips, putting the tongue in the wrong place, pushing the teeth with the tongue, etc. have a habit of misaligning the teeth.

As a countermeasure against each habit, you can also cure the dentition by adjusting the balance of the muscles of the mouth with a mouthpiece and training. This kind of training that allows the muscles to function properly by intervening in the balance at an early stage is called MFT (muscle function therapy).


Lip habit / mouth breathing See above

The habit of causing an open bite

Finger sucking・ ・ ・ Instruct to stop finger sucking early after 3 and a half years old so as not to shift to tongue habit

Abnormal swallowing habit・ ・ ・ Training to move the tongue to the back with the tongue sucked in the suburbs and training to swallow jelly are required

Too moving the tongue Roshitakuse to mind such as holes in the (wax Zetsueki) ... tooth decay, habit or I play with tongue,

It is important to improve the tooth problems that cause it and point out habits.

That the lower lip is caught in the maxillary anterior teeth protruding forward by咬唇habit ... open bite, let's leadership to stop the habit

Pre-alignment training / orbicularis oris muscle training

Mouth breathing・ ・ ・ Nasal breathing training (use lip closing tape for nasal breathing, you can spend minutes without problems with your mouth closed

It is possible to gradually extend the time by practicing.

The habit of causing overcapsular occlusion

Clenching・ ・ ・ Recognition of habits, improvement of lifestyle, pre-arranged training

Cheek cane・ ・ ・ Life guidance (heavy burden on teeth)

Oral habits that cause misalignment in the middle

One-sided chewing : Gum training that makes you feel like you are biting on the non-functional side

Cheek cane from one side・ ・ ・ Life guidance (Isn't the cheek cane attached while studying?)

How to sleep ・ ・ ・ Life guidance (Are you always facing the same direction when sleeping?)

In order to improve these habits and maintain muscle balance, each period of the deciduous dentition period (1 and a half to 6 years old), the mixed dentition period (6 to 12 years old), and the permanent dentition period (12 years old to) We propose muscle function therapy and floor correction using the mouthpiece that suits you.

Intervening early can encourage good growth! Please feel free to contact us.


Estimated mouth growth

0 to 1 year old

Teeth begin to grow around 7 to 8 months. When the front teeth are complete, wipe off the dirt with gauze after weaning food.

~ 2 years old

Molars of deciduous teeth grow.

Carefully brush with a toothbrush with small bristles.

Apply fluorine to strong teeth!

3 years old

The deciduous teeth grow and the chewing power increases dramatically. Inflate your cheeks and practice gargling!

Practice polishing yourself!

4-5 years old

The jaws get bigger and there are gaps.

Use dental floss between your teeth

6 years old

The first permanent teeth, 6-year-old molars, grow from the back of the deciduous teeth. It's easy to get cavities because it's called a young permanent tooth, so let's prevent it with fluorine and a toothbrush!

The front teeth also begin to regenerate!


Floor orthodontic treatment

When you reach elementary school, milk teeth grow and permanent teeth grow one after another.

If the teeth are large relative to the jaw space at this time, crowding will result in rattling teeth.

As a treatment that can be intervened from this period, there is orthodontic treatment using a device called an enlarged floor. It is a mixed dentition treatment with a mixture of deciduous teeth and permanent teeth and is called stage I treatment.

It is a treatment method that widens the width of the dentition by using a device as the child grows, creates a space for dentition, and arranges it naturally. Early intervention may avoid future orthodontic treatment.

Cost 16,5000 yen (tax included) Adjustment fee 3,300 yen / time (tax included)

Period 1-2 years

* If genetic factors or jaw growth are strong, the treatment will shift to stage II treatment (permanent dentition stage).


Tongue diagnosis

① Whether the tongue zonule is easy to stretch or hard to stretch

If the tongue zonule is short, wide, and sticks to the tip of the tongue, it impedes tongue movement.

If the tongue becomes heart-shaped with the tongue stretched forward, movement may be impeded.

It may be dealt with by excision.

② Whether the tongue muscle strength is strong or weak

Diagnosis is based on whether the tongue can be attached to the upper jaw (maintaining elevation on the palate).

If the tongue is weak, it cannot be maintained in the upper jaw.

③ Whether the movement of the tongue is good or bad

Diagnosis is made by moving the tongue left and right and licking the lips with the tongue.

If it can be done smoothly, it is judged that there is no problem.

Trainer mouthpiece correction

It is an orthodontic treatment using a mouthpiece called a trainer used in muscle function therapy.

It is a device that promotes healthy growth by balancing muscles and soft tissues in the mouth such as the habits that cause malocclusion and the position of the tongue as mentioned above.

We will respond by recording changes in the mouth based on objective data by making full use of various equipment that measures oral function, which is a feature of our hospital.
