Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In a dental treatment, doctors and patients feel strong discomfort feeling by hearing dental treatment sounds. It is caused by spectral peaks in a higher frequency. On the other hand, we focus on chords in music theory because they are comfortable sounds. The chords have the spectral structure that multiple spectral peaks are held with specific rules, and the temporal structure changes on basis of the chord progression in musical pieces. These suggest that we may design the comfortable sound by reforming the spectral structure of dental treatment sounds to that of chords. In this paper, we therefore propose the comfortable sound design method based on chord-progression-forming for dental treatment sounds. As results of subjective evaluation experiments, we confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed method.
