The implementation of perioperative oral health management reduces the risk of intraoperative and postoperative complications. For example, it prevents postopera tive infectious endocarditis and aspiration pneumonia to remove the source of infection in the oral cavity and reduce the number of bacterial infectious endocarditis postoperative. In addition, adequate perioperative oral health management can prevent secondary infection caused by oral ulcers in patients undergoing radiation therapy or chemotherapy. Improving oral hygiene leads to improvement in postoperative the quality of life of patients. In our department, we established a dental support system. It was implemented for the management of oral hygiene in patients in all departments, particularly those with difficulty in oral self-cleansing and a high risk of infection. Since 2012, oral care of perioperative patients has been introduced as perioperative oral management. We have performed this in cooperation with doctors belonging to other departments. Here we report the future prospects in light of findings obtained to date.
