One of the secrets of good health and longevity lies in regimen, and it can be said that the basis of it is teeth. That is why there is a saying that one can live long if he or she has strong teeth.
“A joint around my face had been cut off long ago, so my jaw had been inclined to one side and I could not eat food properly to say nothing of speaking. But now I can sing songs as others do.”
This is part of feelings of gratitude what So Kyong Song, 20, living in Kumsong-dong No. 3, Mangyongdae District, Pyongyang, said after getting treatment at the Ryugyong Dental Hospital—he had been suffering from jawbone deficit.
The doctor who cured him is Song Song Won, head of the dental prosthesis department.
Song was fond of drawing pictures from his childhood.
In his kindergarten days, he drew tumblers and planes in picture books though no one had taught him. Seeing his pictures, kindergarten teachers praised him since he would surely become a wonderful artist in the future. After entering the primary school, the boy enrolled in the artist hobby group and was widely known throughout the school for drawing the sketches of different figures.
However, his parents wished him become a professional doctor as they did. They never thought what their son’s gifted talent would exert influence upon his growth in the future.
In the days of learning, he struck people with admiration for his skilful technique and unique portrayal, but he was determined to become a doctor as wished by his parents.
After graduating from Pyongyang University of Medical Sciences, he has worked as a doctor of the conservative tooth treatment department of the Ryugyong Dental Hospital while acquiring in-depth and profound knowledge one by one in the dental field.
He delved into a better treatment method even for a patient and understood technical requirements one after another arising in modelling and making the sample of prosthetic material as well as synthesis of material and making of mould.
In the course of this, he mastered the new knacks of prosthesis treatment and found out his own way of treatment conducive to further beautifying cases’ face. Without resting on his laurels, he newly completed and introduced into reality a method of treating jawbone deficit cases which had been regarded as a knotty problem in the field of dental clinical practice in the past.
He had been awarded a dozen sci-tech certificates by contriving and making medical appliances conducive to the preventive and curative medical care of stomatopathy, and made public valuable papers, drawing the attention of medical circles.
He has succeeded in treating any prosthetic cases at a single try, and many people are pleased as they have restored their strong teeth.
Whenever he looks at their bright smile, Song feels immense pride of his job and devotes everything to the treatment of patients.
