Oral Health as the Key to Good Global Health: Challenges of Creating a Caries Free Society

2016-3-21 (Mon) 10:00 - 16:30

It has been suggested that dental caries, the most frequently-occurring infectious disease in humans, as well as cariogenic bacteria, has effects on the health of the entire body, as seen in the poor growth of children, cardiovascular diseases in adults, and dysphagia in the elderly, but there are still many things that have not been clarified.

The goal of this symposium is to validate these associations from the perspectives of basic and clinical dentistry, and deliver new possibilities of new treatment methods based on a biological viewpoint.

When considering the increased life span in recent years, it's necessary for prevention and treatment of caries to adapt to life stages of the individual, changing from a conventional blind "shave and stuff" method to "caries management" based on biological observations.

We aim to have world leaders in basic and clinical dentistry work together with researchers from Osaka University to deliver their proposals for the future of caries treatment.
