Benefits of oral hygiene can drive university students in Japan toward dental check-ups

In Japan, the frequency at which university students undergo oral health check-ups is reportedly much lower than that of the overall population. This is a cause of concern because frequent oral health check-ups are directly linked to good oral hygiene. Interestingly, this might be related to risk aversion, which in simple terms, is the tendency to prefer certainty over uncertainty. Naturally, individuals with high-risk aversion tend to adopt more healthy behaviors. However, it is not known how risk aversion influences university students’ willingness to undergo oral health check-ups.
