Clinical Department & Center



Our department provides general dental care, oral care and rehabilitation aimed at maintaining the oral health of elderly people.
Our patients include those who cannot receive sufficient dental care due to physical illness, who need general anesthesia or hospitalization for dental care, whose dentures do not fit because their jaws have become thinner, who cannot swallow food well due to aging or the aftereffects of oral cancer, etc., who cannot properly eat food because they experience pain due to stomatitis or dry mouth, or who have a sore tongue or toothache although no problems have been detected at a dental or general hospital.


Medical care system

A total of 20 full-time and part-time dentists provide dental care to more than 15,000 outpatients each year. The real number of inpatients is unknown due to cooperative care with other departments.
