Medical Checkups, Examinations, and Dentistry and Oral Medicine

One factor contributing to the high quality of medical checkups and examinations in Japan is the development of superior diagnostic imaging and testing equipment harnessing the advanced technology that is the nation's forte. In the field of dentistry and oral medicine, top-quality, safe dental equipment and materials developed with cutting-edge technology contribute to Japan' s extremely low rate of toothlessness. In broad terms, state-of-the-art medical equipment is essential to the high standard of Japan's medical checkups, examinations, and dentistry and oral medicine, but it is not the only factor. Other key elements include the presence of highly trained professionals such as health evaluation specialists who give precisely tailored advice based on the results of tests performed, clinical laboratory technicians who carry out precise maintenance of equipment, and nationally certified dental technicians. The Japanese spirit of hospitality and respect for guests extends to the medical field as well.

International comparison of the prevalence of toothlessness

In Japan, the proportion of edentulous (toothless) adults is 10% in the 65-74 age group, which is lower than other countries, suggesting that many people keep their own teeth healthy even at an old age. This is not only because of dentistry and oral medicine supported by cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art equipment and materials. It is also a result of the therapeutic strategies adopted by many Japanese dentists, giving consideration to patients retaining their own teeth as much as possible.
