Compounding Makes Going to the Dentist Easier
Somewhere between 9 and 15 percent of Americans avoid going to the dentist because of fear and anxiety. This means almost 40 million people aren’t getting the dental care they need because of fear. With modern dental advances and customized medications provided by North Fulton Compounding Pharmacy, bi-annual dental checkups do not have to be anxiety riddled or painful experiences.
How We Can Help
Through compounding we provide specialized dosage forms and improve the application and acceptance of medications to ensure patients receive the most benefit. For example, patients who have a fear of needles may benefit from a topical anesthetic or someone who is unable to swallow pills can take their dosage with a gel that is rubbed into the skin. We even offer creative solutions ranging from liquids and pastes to lip balms or lollipops.
Many patients find dental rinses, gels, and solutions unpalatable and children often struggle with the bitter and chemical tastes of treatment provided by dentists. We can make a topical anesthetic taste like cherry or even chocolate and deliver it in a candy-like form like a lozenge or a lollipop. This helps make the process easier and less stressful for a young patient. For older patients, alterations can be made to treatments ranging from topical treatments for ulcers or gum disease to cosmetic bleaching solutions to make them more palatable. The partnership between a dentist and a compound pharmacist can improve and customize care for patients.
