Title: Basic principles of Bi-Digital O-Ring test


Yoshiaki Omura has received his Oncological Residency Training at Cancer Institute of Columbia University and Doctor of Science Degree through research on
Pharmaco-Electro-Physiology of Single Cardiac Cells in vivo and in vitro from Columbia University.


Bi-digital O-ring test (BDORT) consists of following four major principles: (1) When abnormal part of the body is given minute mechanical or optical stimulation, if the area is normal, O-ring made
between thumb and one of the selected fingers can be opened easily by examiner’s O-ring in the presence of abnormality (with only exception being thymus gland where normally it is negative). When one O-ring opens it is called (-)1 and if it doesn’t open it is (+)1. (+)
indicates degree of normal condition, (2) Highly sensitive electromagnetic field (EMF) resonance phenomenon between two identical molecules with identical weight separated within distance of 10 meters, (3) When beneficial substance is taken or simply held in the palm, if it is harmful, O-ring will open and if it is beneficial then O-ring becomes stronger and increases in positive value and (4) When identical molecules are placed on the pathway of laser beam, information on the molecular structure and amount will be transmitted bi-directionally towards direction laser beam is going and direction where laser beam is coming from. These principles were discovered by the author who was also doing part-time graduate experimental physics while doing residency work as an
oncological surgery resident physician at Cancer Institute at Columbia University. The method was successfully used for detection of various cancers including pancreatic cancer before standard laboratory tests could detect. This method was given US Patent in 1993. Using BDORT, many difficult medical problems can be rapidly and non-invasively screened or diagnosed by the following methods without taking any blood or biopsies: (1) Using accurate organ representation area maps of various parts of the body, particularly with face including eyebrows, alars of nose, upper and lower lips and abnormalities such as cancer can appear visibly (as deep crease or pigmentation) or non-visibly, (2) 1-page “mouth, hand and foot writing form” which requires 5~10 minutes for patients to complete form. Using this method without knowing any information on the patient, many abnormal conditions, including cancers, can be detected non-invasively and (3) using rapidly changing QRS Complex or slowly rising part of T-wave, most cancers can be detected and many other medical problems can be detected non-invasively. Once diagnosis of patient’s problem is established, safe, effective, individualized treatment can be found for each individual patient. For dentists, safe, effective, dental materials can be selected before installing harmful, BDORT strong (-) substances with invisible infections.

Association and a director of the Japan Society of Dental Equipment. He published eleven international academic articles in English. 2014-15: He was a chair or co-chair three times in various international congresses.


There is a close relationship between the oral and physical condition. Dentistry also influences the whole body health.  The concept of focal infection is very old, but this concept was declining as well as evolution of antibiotics. However, an infection disease of a tooth root apex or periodontitis has a harmful influence on the whole body. I will show the case of Parkinson’s disease may be caused by it. The cause of dementia is a decline of brain function. Loss of teeth or inappropriate occlusion may deteriorate brain function, so it is possible to improve dementia by occlusal treatment by means of artificial teeth etc. Focus of infection in oral area or allergy of dental materials especially metals may cause dermatitis. Occlusion (biting situation) is very fundamental concept of dentistry. However, ideal occlusion for the whole body health has not clarified yet. I believe one of the best methods to search the ideal occlusion is Bi-Digital O-Ring Test. This method is one of the muscle reflections, so it is easy and safe. This test is useful to select the biocompatible dental materials, too. Elements of dentistry which influence whole body health are variety. Recently, it is clarified that periodontitis and diabetes influence each other mutually. Sports players are required to wear the mouse guards by several sports. Occlusal condition is changed by it, therefore the quality of mouth guard influences the whole body condition or supports performance. Making ideal occlusion may promote supports performance.

The number of patients that visit our clinic with metal allergy as chief complaint have ncreased over the years. This is increase is in The number of patients that visit our clinic with metal allergy as chief complaint have increased over the years. This is increase is in part due to the number of recent reports from the media that have sensationally been released. Owing to this, dental professionals now focus more on metal allergy and their relation to dermal symptoms and recommend patients to be patch tested for metal allergy. In some cases, the dermal symptoms have significantly improved after the metal free dental restorations, however, in other cases, it is not that simple. For example, some patients diagnosed with Pustulosis palmoplantaris (PPP) do not show an improvement of the situation even if metallic fillings are replaced with non-metals. Moreover, some other patients with PPP do not even respond to the patch testing with a large series of metal allergens. In this kind of situation, metal allergy may not be the direct cause for dermal symptoms. We have experienced that in some of these cases, endodontically treating the periapical lesions improve the refractory dermal symptoms, which is in accordance to the literature. This suggests that dental focal infection is associated to some dermal symptoms such as the PPP. Although clinically, we suspect that dental focal infection is the primary reason for the PPP, there is a lack of concrete evidence in the literature. In this lecture, chronic dermal diseases showing metal allergy-like symptoms that improved after endodontic treatment will be presented and discussed based on our long-term experience.

Title: Dental treatment for Hebarden's node


Fumio Yamada has graduated from Aichi Gakuin University, School of Dentistry. He is running his own dental clinic in Aichi prefecture. His recent research involves dentistry and whole-body conditions. His treatment targets are not only traditional dental illnesses i.e. dental caries or periodontitis, etc. but also the whole-body illnesses related to dental conditions. He gave lectures in several conferences. His research interest is in integrated medicine and practice.


Historically, Heberden’s node is regarded as one of the difficult disease to treat. This report presents two cases of dental treatment for Heberden’s node achieved significant recovery. I have been thinking that the cause of this disease is dental focal infection. The case report includes blood examination result. First case is for 53-year-old woman, who has been suffering from a swelling, a sharp pain and functional disorder in DIP joint of left hand ring finger. She consulted with an orthopedic surgeon and was told the difficulty
for treatment and to live with the condition. Along with dental treatments (such as tooth extraction, root canal treatment, alveolar bone curettage, bone cavitation, occlusal adjustment and caries treatment), immunity treatments (such as nose rinse, thoroughgoing nose breathing, etc.) are applied. As a result, significant improvement in her condition than I expected. The case report includes blood examination result for 2 years and patient’s comment video. Second case is 56-year-old patient who had same type of condition as
above-mentioned case and also was suffering from rubbing pain with some deformation of bone.

Dental implants are by far the best choice for tooth replacement. They should closely mimic the function of natural teeth. Modern implants have high success rate – about 95%- when they are inserted properly and followed up so they can last for lifetime. So many factors and considerations influence the success of dental implants, These include  treatment-planning, surgical, and  prosthetic keys.

When considering patient selection and implant treatment planning, there are several factors that must be considered when using implant therapy. Beyond the simple idea of replacing a missing tooth with an implant, a careful analysis of patients’ oral and systemic health, the amount of residual supporting tissues, and the planned restoration must all factor into the planning of dental implants. Much of this information can only be accurately obtained by careful and diagnostic photographs and models followed by diagnostic wax-up of the planned prosthesis. Using the Rules of Six and the Rules of 10, it is possible to plan for implant restorations that have sufficient restorative space to not only provide an aesthetic outcome but also provide for prosthetic longevity leading to great success.

Title: Orthodontic extrusions of impacted incisors from unacceptable to acceptable smiles


B M Shanthala is the Head of the Department of Paedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, Coorg Institute of Dental Sciences, India, with the education qualification of MDS- Paedodontics and Preventive Dentistry, Mangalore University, having teaching experience of 23 years. She has published papers in many national and international journals of dentistry and book publications of original research in the Lambert publishers. She is actively involved in pre-clinical trials of plant-based products, natural products and its potential antibacterial activity against cariogenic micro-organisms.


Over-retained deciduous teeth, supernumerary teeth or ectopic eruption and crowding are the most common etiological factors for impacted central incisors. The prevalence of maxillary central incisor impaction ranges from 0.06% to 0.2%. Diagnosis of impacted incisors are made based on the chief complaint of missing tooth from the child/parent. Its clinical examination involves intra-oral examination: Important clinical signs such as over-retention of the corresponding primary teeth while the contra lateral permanent tooth has already erupted. Pathognomonic sign which indicate impaction of a central incisor is the presence on the arch of the homolateral lateral incisor, as these points to an anomaly in the central incisor eruption process. Deviation from normal sequence of eruption, e.g. lateral incisors erupt prior to the central incisor. Radiographic examination: SLOB, CBCT, Occlusal Radiograph,
Panoramic Radiograph and Lateral Cephalogram. Treatment Options: Conservative management would be the extraction of any obstruction, the creation of space and the observation for spontaneous eruption. 70% of teeth have been reported to erupt spontaneously after removal of obstruction. In the case of a supernumerary tooth, it is often possible to remove the supernumerary tooth avoiding damage to the underlying incisor and allow the incisor to erupt on its own. In some instances of the impacted central incisors, elimination of causative factors such as removal supernumerary tooth might not be sufficient for its emergence in the oral cavity. Customized treatment plan with surgical exposure/orthodontic extrusion will be mandatory. The customized treatment plan is crucial as the impacted central incisor inclination, position or location of the tooth re not same. If horizontally impacted with proximity to nasal floor or high in labial sulcus, surgical exposure and orthodontic exposure technique may not be similar. In this presentation variations in surgical exposure and orthodontic extrusion will be discussed.

He is the Clinical Supervisor of Saudi Board dental student and dental interns, dental services, West Region, King Abdulaziz medical City, The ministry of National Guard, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. He is the author of several scientific journals of repute.



Intentional replantation (IR) is a concept that has been known for over a thousand years, it is defined by Grossman (1966) as an atraumatic extraction of a tooth and its reinsertion into its socket immediately after endodontic treatment and apical repair is done extra-orally. Some authors consider intentional replantation to be a last option; whereas others consider, it was another treatment modality. However, in cases where a dental implant, non-surgical retreatment or surgical treatment is not possible, intentional replantation may be a viable treatment option. Recent case reports have demonstrated that, with good case selection, intentional replantation can be a reliable and predictable procedure. The sensitive portion of the treatment is removal of the tooth traumatically. In the presentation, some cases of Intentional replantation will be reviewed that show the feasibility of the procedure in different situations.

Dentin hypersensitivity is a common condition that is frequently encountered in dental practice. The goal of treatment of dentinal hypersensitivity ideally should be the restoration of the original impermeability of the dentinal tubules and the relief of dentinal hypersensitivity experienced by the patient or at least to reduce the level of discomfort to enable the patient's quality of life to be maintained. Bio-glass has the effectiveness of mineralization and infiltration of dentinal tubules. Laser treatment indentin hypersensitivity is an interesting and controversial issue and many investigations have been done on its mechanism of action, advantages and unclear points. This novel treatment approach aims at the assimilation of both bioglass and laser in providing a viable treatment option for dentin hypersensitivity.

Even though it is a great challenge to define and discuss all the anatomical elements of the hand in detail in a time-limited lecture. It may be possible to review the basic architecture in a way presenting a clinical understanding. From the viewpoint of an anatomist, bones, joints, muscles and neurovascular structures ruling various patterns of action will be reviewed. Since several acupuncture
points are found on the hand and fingers, it is essential to have a sound knowledge of anatomy of the wrist, hand and fingers to manage the conditions by means of acupuncture.

Title: 5 cases which were dramatically improved body issues by Fujii’s method by means of Bi-digital O-ring test





Since a medical department and dentistry are educated separately, dentistry becomes the blind spot of the modern medicine.Therefore, there are many patients who continue receiving the symptomatic treatment that only reduce their hard symptoms by holding unidentified causes in check though they consult a medical department. By approach from dentistry with Fujii’s Bi-digital O-ring test method, here are the 5 case reports that the symptom of the whole body improved instantly. Case 1: The pain of the scruff and the sense of incongruity of the hip joint has instantly reduced by sharpening just a little (a 1-100th millimeter of=10 microns), though this patient has never been cured by any treatments such as massage, manual therapeutics and chiropractic. Case 2: Patient came to raise her hand (arm) at the moment when a wisdom tooth is extracted. Case 3: By improving a denture form, the stiffness of the right shoulder, the numbness and a pain of the right hand, the tension of the right scruff improved instantly. Case 4: By improving a denture form, the patient became easy to walk. The stiffness of the incurable right shoulder blade was cured by the amalgam removal. The high blood pressure is improved, too. Case 5: Right after putting on the new denture, the patient became able to come up the stairs smoothly without having a handrail.

Presently, cancer one of the most prevalent types of disease is a growing health problem round the world and is the one of the leading cause of death. Oral cancer, sixth most common cancer which occurs worldwide and continues to be the most prevalent cancer which develops in multistep process from pre-existing potentially malignant lesions. The most common precancer is Leukoplakia which represents 85% of such lesions and 95% of oral cancers are squamous cell carcinomas (OSCC). In India, the incidence of oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) and OSCC is also increasing like an epidemic and clear majority of OSCC arises from pre-existing Leukoplakia. Several studies have reported that 1-18% of premalignant oral lesions will develop into malignant form. Candida albicans has also been identified as a possible factor in development of oral leukoplakia and its malignant transformation. Candida species, dimorphic harmless eukaryotic organism are members of phylum Ascomycota. In healthy individual, it mostly resides as a part of normal commensal microbial flora on mucosal surfaces of oral cavity. Candida albicans grows as a filamentous form, capable of forming true hyphae and is one of the only Candida species. Hyphae play important roles in adhesion and invasion into epithelium. It contributes many virulence attributes like adherence to host tissue and release of some hydrolytic enzymes. It is still
unclear, how an increased amount of Candida albicans in oral cavity influence the progression of pre-cancer to malignancy. A higher level of Candida albicans is present in precancerous and OSCC patients. Candida albicans is most pathogenic and significantly more successful pathogen in oral malignancy transformation. There are no drugs which can affect extremely to treat oral cancers. There is a general call for new emerging drugs that are highly effective towards cancer, possess low toxicity and have a minor environment
impact. Novel natural products offer opportunities for innovation in drug discovery. Natural compounds isolated from medicinal plants, as rich sources of novel anticancer drugs, have been of increasing interest. The alarming reports of cancer cases increase the awareness amongst the clinicians and researchers pertaining to investigate newer drug with low toxicity.

Root canal perforation occurs in 2-12% of endodontically treated teeth. It can be caused by either iatrogenic during root canal treatment or pathologic. Root perforation may complicate and reduces the success rate of the root canal treatment, if not managed properly. Multiple factors can affect the treatment outcome of the perforation. Multiple factors assist the clinician decision for
treatment. Early recognition of the perforation is crucial for the long-term success. Several materials have been suggested to repair the perforation. It is the dentist responsibility to be aware of the orientation of the tooth structure and the supporting tissue within the oral cavity to avoid this situation. In this presentation, a brief description of the condition and the treatment options would be highlighted.

Title: The harmful influence of whole body when dental treatment materials is worked as an antenna of electromagnetic waves


Ai Harada has completed his graduation in Dentistry from Tokushima University, Japan.


The patient has presented with the neck pain stretching out to the shoulder area, the pain increases when the left arm is stretched to the back. Her left toes also sometimes go numb. Some example of electromagnetic hypersensitivity (ES) symptoms are muscle pain, going the body stiff, etc., so it was examined whether her symptom changed when her mouth was covered with aluminum foil decreasing electromagnetic waves. As a result, her left arm pain stretched to the back was disappeared immediately after her mouth was covered with the aluminum foil. Therefore, at this case, the pain could be caused not by heavy metal contamination and malocclusion but by collected electromagnetic waves. The most influenced dental treatment material around was a dental amalgam filling. The dental amalgam filling was removed under the protective covering. After removing the dental amalgam, the pain was decreased and enlarged range of motion. In addition, the numbness of her left toes improved. Because the symptom decreased immediately after removing amalgam filling, the cause of the pain and the range of motion could be more harmful effect of electromagnetic waves than heavy metal contamination. With the electro-mobiles, smartphones, personal computers, etc. are popular, the amount of electromagnetic waves come large, so in dental treatments the effects of electromagnetic waves must be considered.

The number of children with caries requiring general anesthesia to achieve comprehensive dental care and the demand for dentist anesthesiologists to provide ambulatory anesthesia for these patients is increasing. In 2010, the Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia Clinical Outcomes Registry was developed. This Web-based database allows providers of ambulatory anesthesia to track patient demographics and various outcomes of procedures. This presentation reviews a secondary analysis of data collected in the registry over a 4-year period, 2010–2014. Of the 7041 cases reviewed, no cases resulted in serious complications, including death, anaphylaxis, aspiration, cardiovascular adverse events, or neurologic adverse events. Of the 7041 cases reviewed, 196 (3.0%) resulted in a predischarge or postdischarge adverse event. The predischarge adverse event occurring with the highest frequency was laryngospasm, occurring in 35 cases (0.50%). The postdischarge adverse event occurring with the highest frequency was nausea, reported by 99 patients (5.0%) for the 1991patients reached for follow-up by the dentist anesthesiologist following their procedure. This analysis provides strong clinical outcomes data to support the safety of office-based anesthesia as performed by dentist anesthesiologists in the treatment of pediatric dental patients. Example of a “typical” patient procedure will be presented for discussion.

Title: Links Between Oral and General Health : The Mouth as Early Warning System


Arup Ratan Choudhury has obtained his BDS from Dhaka University, Bangladesh; FDSRCS (England), Fellowship in Dental Surgery, Royal College of Surgeons, England-2012 and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Dhaka University, Bangladesh. He is presently a Professor and Honorary Senior Consultant, BIRDEM Hospital and has specialization in: General dentistry and treatment for immunosuppressive medically compromised patient’s systemic disease related to oral disease; prevention of oro-dental diseases and dental health education related to drug abuse and smoking; research work-mainly on diabetes & oral disease and nutrition; dental disease especially periodontal disease and white lesions in diabetes, etc.


By integrating oral health into strategies for promoting general health and by assessing oral needs in socio-dental ways, health planners can greatly enhance both general and oral health.The key concept underlying future oral health strategies is integration with this approach, a major benefit being the focus on improving health conditions in general for the whole population and for groups at high risk, thereby reducing social inequities. Problems in the mouth can signal trouble in other parts of the body. AIDS and osteoporosis are examples.
Mouth lesions and other oral conditions may be the first sign of HIV infection, and are used to determine the stage of infection and to follow its progression to AIDS.
The human mouth is home to millions of microorganisms, most of them harmless. Under certain conditions, however, some can cause oral infections such as tooth decay or gum disease. Oral bacteria may also enter the bloodstream if normal protective barriers in the mouth are breached. This can happen as a result of dental treatment or even tooth brushing and flossing. Recent studies point to associations between oral infections – primarily gum infections – and diabetes; heart disease; stroke; and preterm, low-weight births.
 Research is under way to determine if the associations are causal or coincidental.Gum infections have been called "the sixth complication of diabetes," because people with diabetes are more likely to have periodontal disease. Researchers are exploring a possible two-way connection between the conditions to see if treating gum disease improves diabetic control. Recent studies point to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke in people with gum infections; the risk increases with the severity of the oral infection Some studies have found that mothers of preterm, low birth weight infants tend to have more severe gum disease than mothers of normal birth weight babies. More research is needed to determine if gum infections do indeed contribute to babies being born too soon and too small. Among tobacco users , oral cancer is a significant concern. Survival and treatment outcomes depend largely on stage of diagnosis. Early detection has the potential to improve the prognosis and quality of life for those diagnosed with oral cancer. Oral cancer statistics show that less than 40 percent of oral cancer cases are diagnosed at an early stage.A  number of conditions of  the  oral  mucosa may present as white patches. Although  the majority of white patches are  of  little significance, certain lesions are associated with pre-malignancy or malignancy. Unfortunately , the presence of any sinister lesion cannot be  assesed by clinical appearance alone and  definitive diagnosis, involving a biopsy, is mandatory whenever there  is uncertainetly  about the clinical diagnosis of  an  oral  white patch

Periodontitis and peri-implantitis are chronic inflammatory diseases caused by microorganisms residing in subgingival biofilm. Elimination of pathogen-containing biofilms remains the primary goal of the treatment for these diseases. The topical use of a low-cost, broad-spectrum antiseptic agent with low potential for adverse reactions is preferable in treating periodontitis or peri-implantitis. Ozone (O3) is attracting attention as a possible alternative antiseptic in the dental field as well as food industries. The high stability of Ozone Ultrafine Bubble Water (OUFBW) allows for bottling and use as a disinfectant solution. In my presentation, the bactericidal activity biocompatibility against human oral cells of OUFBW will be introduced. The OUFBW possesses potent bactericidal activity against several kinds of bacteria such as periodontopathic and cariogenic bacteria and is not cytotoxic to cells of human oral tissues. The use of NBW3 as an adjunct to the therapy for periodontitis and peri-implantitis would be promising.

 Polymicrobial interactions with the host in both health and disease will be discussed. So far we have attempted to identify specific bacterial clonal types of periodontal diseases, however, we have to learn more concerning their contribution to both oral health and disease. Recent studies suggested that host-associated polymicrobial communities are an integral part of us. Understanding the microbial community factors that support the associations with host tissue that contribute to periodontal health may also reveal how disbiotic oral communities disrupt periodontal tissue functions. On the other hand, periodontitis has been implicated as a risk factor for various systemic diseases. Dysbiosis in oral cavity might cause systemic changes other than the destruction of periodontal tissue. We have to develop strategies to prevent the dysbiotic state for obtaining periodontal and systemic health.

This study deals with a case in which symptoms of a patient with palmoplantar pustulosis, which is said to be a refractory disease, have been remarkably improved. The beginning symptoms were seen when the embolism started to develop on the hands and feet, especially the symptoms on the feet which was severe. Fungus was not detected. Dermatologist prescribed steroid ointment. After applying the ointment topically, the symptoms worsened and itching, and pain increased. Therapeutic results are: It was consideredn that the gold silver palladium alloy filling material in the oral cavity led to a negative result on the O-ring test, Significant improvements were seen in symptoms (especially on soles of the feet) of palmoplantar pustulosis by replacing inlays with the appropriate metal (20K gold) selected by the O-ring test. It can be concluded that dental treatment using the O-ring test and body balance greatly improved
the symptoms of refractory palmoplantar postulosis that had been unresponsive to treatments in other medical departments, when disease is caused by conditions in the oral cavity, dental treatment using the O-ring test and body balance is considered to be very useful.
