DENTAL COMPOUNDING Innovative Techniques
Dentists are faced with many unique therapeutic problems not typically encountered by physicians. At West Lindfield Pharmacy we realize that no two patients are alike with respect to their dental needs. We offer creative solutions to help solve these problems by working together with your dentist to meet your specific needs.
The following are examples of solutions that may used to improve the dental treatments of our patients.
Appropriate Dosage Forms
We can prepare the needed medication into your choice of dosage form, such as oral rinse, suspension, lollipop, or oral adhesive paste.
Some medicines are difficult to swallow because of its taste. We can compound the right flavour to please any palate.
Convenient to Use
We can compound several medications into a single preparation, making it more convenient for you.
Medication Hard to Find
Pharmaceutical companies may stop making products for which there is limited demand. However, for patients who respond better to a medicine no longer commercially available, we can obtain the pure active ingredient and prepare the desired dosage form.
Sugar, Preservative, Dye or Lactose Free
Commercial formulations may contain preservatives such as alcohol, which can cause irritation, or sugar which makes the medication undesirable for prolonged use in the mouth. We can prepare sugar-free and preservative-free dosage forms. We can also compound medications without additives such as dyes or lactose for patients who are allergic.
