Japan Society for Adhesive Dentistry
The origins of the Japan Society for Adhesive Dentistry lie in the March 20, 1983 establishment of the Japan Research Organization for Adhesive Dentistry. At the 5th academic lecture session general assembly on April 25, 1987, this organization formally changed its name to the Japan Society for Adhesive Dentistry.
In Japan, the word adhesion started to appear in dental related texts as far back as around 1960. In time, the nation which first produced a reproducible, assured adhesive resin system to dentine was Japan (1982). Currently, material that adheres not only to the hard tissue of teeth, but also to diverse materials such as dental alloy and ceramics, is being improved and developed, and used in an expansive clinical arena.
The kind of adhesion that the Japan Society for Adhesive Dentistry aims for transcends the traditional concept of adhering resin to teeth and could even be thought of as an essential technology for fundamentally revolutionizing dental care. That is to say, in traditional dental care, it has been commonplace practice for the irreplaceable good health of teeth to be sacrificed under the justification of conducting care. However, the evidence and clinical methods born from the research work and passionate devotion of a great many of our predecessors were responsible not only for actualizing scientific advancement, they have also brought about an embodiment of "dental healthcare with the minimum necessary invasiveness" wished for by patients worldwide. In addition to academic research, our academic society also focuses on the ongoing development of dental healthcare using adhesion, including practical clinical techniques. We advance forward in a global leadership position.
