Early detection and intervention of dental issues is
important in maintaining your oral health.
It is said that more than 50% of adults aged 35 and over have periodontal disease and over 85% of adults are at risk. Recent research also indicates that periodontal disease could worsen diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis. Your oral health is not just about your teeth and gums. It also has an impact on your overall health.
At DI Dental Setagaya Oral Clinic, our comprehensive dental examination service, “Dental Dock”, analyzes your oral health for any possible trouble areas. In addition to Dental Dock, we also offer “Medical Dock”, which is a medical checkup of areas that affect dental health. Medical dock serves to analyze the dental condition from a non-dental standpoint.
We also offer personalized medication services, one-on-one consultation services, blood test and allergy test as add-on options. Please email us if you have any inquiries regarding the examinations or any of the add-on options.

S-KIT – The world’s first real-time saliva and breath analysis device
The dental director of the DI Dental Setagaya Oral Clinic, who is also the head of the startup company “Any-Edge Inc.” is currently developing the world’s first real-time saliva and breath analysis device (Five patent applications have been filed). Within two seconds, the MEMS (Mechanical Electrical Micro Systems) sensor inside the device screens your breath for biomarkers and analyzes your risk of bad breath, tooth decay and periodontal disease.
The device is currently under development; however, you can experience the device for yourself when you sign up for our Dental Dock.
