The other day, when I went to the dentist to get a regular checkup, I found copies of an article of the magazine PRESIDENT about dental health in the waiting room. I read with interest the article and I would like to introduce a part of it from PRESIDENT 2019.8.2.
The president of Softbank group, Masayoshi Son takes a great care of teeth for health. Despite being busy every day, he has been visiting a dentist every three months for years. He cannot drink at all and is less than picky about food, but he pays a great deal of attention to self-maintenance. Visiting a dentist every three months like Son, we can say that is a common sense today. It’s not an exaggeration to say that your teeth life decides how long you can continue to work actively.
Scale buildup is inevitable. And it causes a gum disease. Also, the fewer existing teeth, the more it boosts dementia risk. People with gum disease face a growing risk of cerebrovascular accident, cardiac affection, arterial sclerosis, aspiration pneumonia, diabetes and metabolic syndrome. To extend healthy life expectancy, daily care of teeth is absolutely necessary.
Whenever I go to the dentist for a checkup, I get a plaque check with plaque agent. Sometimes I miss certain teeth for brushing without realizing. I will continue to brush my teeth properly to prevent of gum disease. (H.S)
