Dental Compounding

Don't be Afraid of the Dentist... scared-of-the-dentist

Make the dentist's chair more comfortable with dental compounding

Working closely with an Apex compounding pharmacist, a dental practitioner can prescribe medications for procedural anxiety, pain relief, crown preparations, dry socket treatments, fluoride treatments, gum disease, plaque removal, ulcers, canker sores and even tooth whitening.

Unique Dosage Forms

Some patients don't always respond to standard medications. Some nauseated patients who cannot swallow a pill may receive medicine transdermally through a gel rubbed into the skin. Patients who suffer from needle anxiety may receive a topical anesthetic to allow for painless dental injection. Other commercially unavailable dosage forms include liquids, pastes, or lozenges.

Flavored Medication

One obvious challenge with dental related medications is the involvement of the taste buds. Some dental rinses, solutions and gels can be less than tasteful. A compounding pharmacist can help the medicine taste better without changing its vital properties and performance. For instance, a bitter analgesic can be enhanced with chocolate flavor to make it taste better. A tooth-bleaching solution would be easier to use if it tasted like peppermint cream.
