Dry lips

Dental hygienist Hazuki Matsui


Hello, I am the dental hygienist Matsui at Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic.

I would like to talk about the prevention of dry and chapped lips.

Lips are very thin horny layer and lack the function of keeping enough natural moisturizing ingredients. Loss of natural oils happen due to exposure to cold, dry winds.

What is the cause?
• Licking lips
• Dry environment
• Sunburn
• Lack of vitamin B2
• Smoking

Lips have a rapid metabolism compared with normal skin, so we can keep healthy, hydrated lips with daily care.

Preventive care
• Use lipsticks containing Jojoba oil, vitamins or medical lipsticks
• Have food that contains vitamin B2 such as eggs, Natto, spinach or liver.

Beauty specialists recommend putting honey or Vaseline on lips, then covering them with plastic wrap for 10 minutes. This is quite effective.
These days there are many kinds of lip products available in shops.

We support our patients with total oral care.

Smile Back to Thailand

Tomonori Waki, D.D.S., Ph.D.

Good morning, this is Dr. Waki, the director of the Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic.

“Smile Back to Thailand” is a charity that helps flood victims in Thailand. It is organized by Mr. Ryu Murao, an author of a variety of books on business. We approve of this charity, and together with Mr. Murao will support Thailand together.

The Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic has also been donating to relief efforts of the earthquake in eastern Japan, as well as supporting nursing care and education as much as possible.

We would now like to take part in the charity of “Smile Back to Thailand”.

The Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic will donate 10% of our proceeds from Dental Check Ups, Teeth Cleanings, and Teeth Whitenings to the Royal Thai Embassy in February.

We provide you only safe, professional treatments, welcoming you as our family and friends.

Why our treatments and preventive care are not covered by Japanese National Health Insurance.

Tomonori Waki, D.D.S., Ph.D.

Hello I am Dr.Waki, Director of Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic.

When I was staying in the United States, I was free from the Japanese national health insurance system and was able to offer all kinds of highly advanced treatments to my patients as specialist.

I was able to provide what the patient really needed for recovery and for preserving their health. We took our time explaining the treatments to our patients, performed our procedures with strict attention to detail, utilized highly advanced medical technology, and had access to the most appropriate medicines and materials and the most up-to-date facilities as a specialist.

After I came back to Japan, I directly felt the restriction of the Japanese national health insurance system. As a specialist it was very difficult to freely offer what patients needed. Unfortunately I was limited in offering the most advanced dental treatments, since the Japanese national health insurance only covers older types of treatment.

Needless to say, I respect and understand the necessity of the national health system in Japan, as it is a great system that helps and saves people.

However, through my experiences in the United States as a specialist, I realized the differences between what the Japanese health insurance system could offer and what the most advanced treatments in the world could provide. It made me think deeply about how to offer secure and reliable treatments to my family and friends. It was then that I made my big decision.

I decided to offer the most advanced treatments that I mentioned above, all with our hospitality, professional responsibility and reliability. I don’t compromise any treatment, and I always do my best for my patients.

We always take sufficient time to examine your oral condition, providing a thorough explanation of our diagnosis and potential treatment plans. After explaining everything completely and deciding on a plan together, we will begin the most appropriate treatment or preventive care for you.

These are the reasons our treatments are not covered by the Japanese health insurance system. However, we do accept health insurance from other countries. We offer the best way for you to recover and preserve your health.

Periodontal Examination

Dental hygienist Hazuki Matsui

Hello I am Matsui,

Have you ever heard of a periodontal examination?

Teeth are supported by various cellular structures, especially bone.

A periodontal examination is very important in checking the cellular structures surrounding your teeth.

 

During a periodontal examination, we check:

  • If your gums experience bleeding
  • If tartar has formed on your teeth or not
  • If you have any periodontitis
  • If the bone surrounding your teeth is decreasing or not
  • If your gums are inflamed or not
  • How much your gums are receding
  • How much your teeth move
  • If there is space between the roots of your molars

 

After performing a complete examination, we provide our patients with a thorough diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan.

Welcome to Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic English Page!

Tomonori Waki, D.D.S., Ph.D.

Hello I am Dr.Waki.

I am a director of Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic.

 

I first would like to thank every patient, doctor and staff member for all of their help in opening our homepage in English.

 

We are launching our website in English to let the larger international community know what we can do for you, and to show you our clinic’s idea and atmosphere. Please check it out!

 

I lived in the U.S. for approximately 4 years. During that time, it was very difficult to go the clinic as a patient, owing to the different culture and language. My family and I did, however, received a lot of help from our friends.

Now that I am in Japan, I believe it is my turn to help. I would like to assist people from other countries, and so I decided to open an international dental clinic in Azabu area.

 

If you have any worries about your smile, or if you would like to consult a dentist, please contact us anytime. We would like to help you keep your healthy smile!

What is Esthetic Dentistry?

Tomonori Waki, D.D.S., Ph.D.

Hello I am Dr.Waki director of Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic.

 

My philosophy regarding dental esthetics includes more than just whitening teeth. I believe it also means improving the function of teeth so that you can enjoy a more natural, beautiful mouth that also allows you to eat and drink without pain or discomfort.

It is very difficult to prevent gum recession and discoloration just by covering your teeth with white crowns.

My treatments help patients recover healthy gums and restores their beautiful smiles. Furthermore, my treatments help your overall function by balancing all of your teeth so that you can enjoy any kind of meal. For patients who have speech pronunciation problems stemming from a poor oral condition, my treatments will restore your ability to pronounce clearly.

 

My ultimate goal is to help patients maintain a good oral condition for a long time.

It is generally said that oral appearance and function decline with age. However, it is very much possible to restore your oral condition. You can get your natural mouth back again with appropriate treatments.

You may not be satisfied with your mouth even if you have received dental treatments before. I want you to know that you can definitely get your nice natural smile back.

Please contact us if you are worried about or feel distressed with your mouth.
I, a certified specialist of the Japan Academy of Esthetic Dentistry, provide patients with worldwide, well-grounded, high quality treatments.
