We can create customized medication to enhance dental care.
Corticosteroids can be incorporated into a mouth wash for the treatment of canker sores, lichen planus or other conditions. Further, the pain associated with certain conditions can be relieved with the use of a prescription analgesic agent that is compounded with a mucoadhesive agent.
Pain related to chemotherapy, infections or other trauma can be treated using prescription analgesics and/or anti-inflammatory agents compounded to allow for the ready absorption of the active agent(s) through oral or facial tissues.
Some commonly used dental dosage forms include:
- Mouthwashes or rinses
- Lip balms
These are just some examples of how we can assist dentists in caring for their patients. Please contact a Stokes pharmacist today for more information.
