Dr Shigeta recommends regular scaling to keep teeth healthy

From working in Japan, Australia and China, Japanese dentist and owner of Shigeta Dental Clinic, Dr Shigeta has gained a lot of work experience. The dentist, who studied in Tokyo, is happy to share what is most important in personal dental care.

The experienced Japanese knows that not a single tooth can be neglected in the daily cleaning routine. The dentist said, “We focus on every single tooth to guarantee the most healthy and beautiful teeth for our patients.”

According to Dr Shigeta, two things are necessary to maintain healthy teeth. “A regular, thorough checkup of the whole mouth and all teeth as well as preventive care are the most important,” Shigeta said.

To prevent cavities and tartar from destroying the teeth, Dr Shigeta recommended a regular scaling and he added: “Normally at Shigeta Dental Clinic, we spend at least 45 minutes to one hour to clean the teeth properly and do the mouth checkup.”

Dr Shigeta doesn’t only take a close look into his patients’ mouths, he also uses the latest high-tech equipment to look right into the teeth without having to drill them open and cause discomfort.

His digital X-ray camera can produce images that reveal the inside of his patients’ teeth to make sure no cavities are spreading inside a tooth where the human eye cannot see.
