Since 2009, the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the Shiga University of Medical Science Hospital has implemented a dental support system in cooperation with various departments to offer oral care for all inpatients. Following the new establishment of items for oral function management during the perioperative period in the revision of dental care fees in Japan in 2012, we newly established a perioperative oral management system specialized for the perioperative period to offer perioperative oral function management. In the present study, we examined the characteristics and issues of 1,665 patients who received oral care during an eight-year period (June 2009 to September 2016) and 1,692 patients who received perioperative oral function during a two-year period (October 2014 to September 2016) under the perioperative oral management system. A comparison of the number of cases and treatments related to oral care and perioperative oral function management that were performed revealed that there remain many patients who actually require oral care and perioperative oral function management but have not been identified. The results of the present study revealed that there is currently an imbalance in referring departments and that there is a need to collaborate with more clinical departments in the future and raise awareness concerning the importance of perioperative oral cavity management.
