It's been 35 years since I have learned orthodontic technician. I think, “My technician is not first-class! but not third-class. But I want to be first-class!” At the beginning, I devoted myself to my work, and later I became more wondered and questioned about “the mechanism of tooth movement and orthodontic treatment” and entered the graduate school of dental school in search of an answer after 50 years old. I also trained in England and Germany to learn about the world of orthodontics. I also touched on German lingual orthodontic appliances and treatments, and was once again surprised that Japanese lingual orthodontic treatment is one of the best in the world. There is a setup in the sophisticated technique, and it will lead to the doctor's treatment simulation (setup) for the first time after learning the patient's analysis, diagnosis, and the doctor's treatment system.
I learned the joy of helping orthodontic treatment by providing the setup to the doctor and the importance of the work of the technician, and I became more interested and ambitious, but at the same time I learned the difficulty and the limit of the technician. Careful guidance and support from many doctors, and a lot of clinical experience further improved the accuracy of my setup, and at the same time start the human occlusal style, skillful occlusal function, aesthetics, and harmony with the face and jaw. I'm still learning more about the setup, which has to contain a lot of information. These are all irreplaceable assets. While introducing the guidance from many doctors in this lecture, I would like to talk about the technology and knowledge that I have been working on and the message to the young people to the next generation from my perspective.
