Dental Compounding – Customized Medications to Enhance Dental Care

Dental Compounding – Customized Medications to Enhance Dental Care 

Customized medications prepared by our compounding pharmacy help both dentists and their patients. We customize medications to solve each patient’s specific medication problems. Upon a prescription order, we can compound:

  • Lip balms for viral lesions
  • Transdermal (topically applied) muscle relaxants/analgesics
  • Topical anesthetics
  • Non-staining antibacterial rinses
  • Oral sedation in lollipops and freezer pops
  • Lollipops for oral thrush
  • Mouthrinses for aphthous ulcers
  • Lozenges or rinses for stomatitis or mucositis caused by radiation or chemotherapy, or for Burning Mouth Syndrome
  • Mouthrinse to minimize oral bleeding during dental procedures for patients who take anticoagulants
  • Dry socket (alveolar osteitis) preparations
  • Medicated “mucosal bandage” to cover ulcerated, infected, or tender mucosa
  • Many more unique preparations and novel dosage forms

Due to stability concerns, and the cost of stocking and distributing numerous formulations of each drug, medications are manufactured only in a limited number of strengths and dosage forms that will satisfy the needs of most patients. Using pharmaceutical grade chemicals and specialized equipment not found in most pharmacies, we can compound medications in doses and dosage forms that are not commercially available. We want to optimize the care of every patient. Just let us know what you need!
