Clinical Department & Center

Dental Anesthesiology


Our department’s work is divided into anesthesia management for oral surgery at the Surgical Center and outpatient consultations at the dental anesthesiology clinic.

Anesthesia management at the Surgical Center

We manage general anesthesia for major invasive oral surgery.

Procedures at the dental anesthesiology clinic

  • At the dental anesthesiology clinic, we use general anesthesia, intravenous sedation, nitrous oxide inhalation sedation and various other techniques for the following patients to ensure smooth and safely dental treatment without fear and anxiety.
  • Patients whose extreme anxiety prevents proper dental treatment, and those who have an abnormal pharyngeal reflex (choke during dental treatment)
  • Patients who have systemic diseases such as hypertension and heart disease, and are concerned that their underlying disease may be worsened due to dental treatment
  • Patients who have difficulty receiving dental treatment in a conscious state due to mental retardation, autism, cerebral palsy, etc.
  • Patients undergoing extraction of an impacted wisdom tooth or other dental treatment that may be a too heavy physical or mental burden on them under only local anesthesia
  • Patients who may react unusually to local dental anesthesia, such as those with an allergy

In addition to systemic control under dental treatment, we also provide treatment for pain and palsy in the oral cavity area.


Medical care system

We perform general anesthetic management for approximately 450 cases at the Surgical Center and roughly 800 cases at the dental anesthesiology clinic each year.

Treatment policy

For smooth dental treatment, it is important to accurately understand the condition of the patient.
Even for simple tooth extractions, we may perform various tests as needed.
If the patient is under treatment at internal medicine, we closely communicate with his/her doctor to understand his/her overall condition before providing dental care.
We may also refer the patient to another clinical department depending on the circumstances.
For pain or palsy in the mouth or face, patients may also have to visit neurosurgery or otolaryngology.
