Summary

If you are suffering from chronically stiff shoulders and headaches, they may be a result of your poorly aligned teeth. Based his on his personal research, Yoshino, a leading figure in Japanese dentistry, illustrates the relationship between tooth alignment and health conditions. Suggesting that the rapid Westernization of everyday routines is the cause of badly aligned teeth, Yoshino provides a variety of ways to improve our health simply by reviving cultural customs.

Yoshino also explores how regenerative therapy is being used in dentistry today, as well as possible uses for it in the future. In dentistry, unlike other medical fields, regenerative therapy methods have been in use for many years, and are now even used in conjunction with advanced implant therapy to assist esthetic restorative treatment. With the demand for more accessible information on regenerative therapy as a potential method for patients to recover their own tissues for a healthier, more beautiful smile, on the rise, Change Your Life provides a thorough yet easy-to-understand explanation of available regenerative therapies illustrated with practical case studies.

The regenerative application of embryonic stem cells (ES cell) collected from fertilized ovum, and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cell) collected from somatic cells, have been receiving more and more attention in the medical field in recent years due to their ability to differentiate and proliferate themselves in many kinds of tissue. Though the clinical application in general dentistry is not yet to available due to the still experimental nature of stem cell research, this book explores the possibilities for their application in dentistry.
