Do you know all the different ways Compounding help your patients? A compounding pharmacist partners with dentists, and their patients, to solve both common and unique problems. Dosage strength, dosage forms, flavoring, and commercially unavailable products are just some of the ways your compounding pharmacist can help your practice. Compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for patients. In recent years, compounding has experienced a renaissance as modern technology and innovative techniques and research have allowed more dentists and other healthcare providers to work with pharmacists to customize medications to meet specific patient needs. Due to its variety of patients, dentistry is an ideal arena for compounded medications. From an eight-year-old getting a cavity filled to an eighty-year-old getting fitted for dentures, each patient is unique and may benefit from custom-compounded medication.

Working closely with a compounding pharmacist, a dental practitioner can prescribe medications for:

  • Procedural anxiety
  • Pain relief
  • Dry socket treatment
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Gum disease
  • Plaque removal
  • Oral ulcers
  • Canker sores
  • And much more…
