Swallowing rehabilitation / dietary guidance

Eating and swallowing dysfunction is a syndrome that accompanies various diseases. The causes are divided into organic disorders and functional disorders, and the dentist cannot judge by himself.

Based on the results of swallowing function evaluation, swallowing endoscopy, and swallowing contrast examination, we will consult with the doctor in charge and propose swallowing rehabilitation and dietary guidance in cooperation with other occupations.

We also provide training for strengthening oral and pharyngeal functions by dental hygienists and speech therapists in visiting dentistry.

We also provide nutritional support by a registered dietitian.

Visit dental practice

At Saitama Oral Rehabilitation Dental Clinic, we mainly deal with swallowing, but we also provide home-visit dentistry for those who have difficulty in visiting a nearby dental clinic. The area that can be visited is within 16 km from the clinic, but if continuous treatment is required, we will cooperate with the Omiya Dental Clinic of the same corporation.


Main visiting dental areas

Saitama City Toda City Koshigaya City Kasukabe City Kawagoe City Hasuda City Ageo City

Kawaguchi City Tokorozawa City Koshigaya City Soka City etc.

* Medical insurance covers the partial contribution of patients for home-visit dental care.

At home and residential facilities, long-term care insurance is also applied at the same time.

Indirect training

In swallowing, not only the functions of organs directly related to swallowing such as the tongue, oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx, but also breathing and posture are greatly involved. Affects. Oral care and denture adjustment / positioning are the basics of general care.

Swallowing training is performed in the sitting position as much as possible. By taking the sitting position, the respiratory function required for swallowing is improved and the movement of muscles related to mastication and swallowing is also improved. In addition, oral care suppresses the growth of germs in the oral cavity, increases saliva secretion by stimulating the oral cavity, and promotes the movement of the tongue and pharynx.

Oral care: activation of consciousness, prevention of pneumonia, maintenance of taste
