It has been shown that oral hygiene affects the onset of perioperative complications. The usefulness of perioperative oral function management aiming at the outbreak decrease in treatment complications and an early discharge was recognized. As a result, perioperative oral function management fee was founded at revision of medical service fees in Fiscal year 2012. In this clinical study, we evaluated the implementation of perioperative oral function management in Tokushima University Hospital. We examined 781 patients, including 563 patients for surgery and 218 patients for chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The mean age of patients was 58.8 ± 12.4 years old. The implementation rate of perioperative oral function management was 9.7% in the patients of surgery, and 17.4% in those of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The highly required medical department was neurosurgery in the patients of surgery, and hematology in those of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The mean number of tooth present was 21.3 ± 7.1 in the patients of surgery, and 19.8 ± 7.2 in those chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The rate of dental treatment was required in 40.5% of total patients who received surgery, and in 51.4% of patients who received chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The rate of patients who received denture treatment attained to 11.9% of the whole patients receiving surgery, and 13.3% of patients receiving chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It was revealed that there were many patients required potential demands in perioperative oral function management, and that there were many patients who need dental or denture treatment. We would like to develop perioperative oral function management by the interprofessional collaboration in health and social care.
