At Meta Pharmacy Services we work with all prescribers to create the most useful medication and dosage form for each patient. This is often very useful for dentists who face unique medical challenges which often require specialized treatment formulations to best treat their patient.
One example of a common specialized formulation we can create is magic or miracle mouthwash. It is used to treat oral mucositis. Oral mucositis can be caused by a number of factors which is important because the treatment depends on the underlying cause. The true magic or miracle of this mouthwash is it does not have one specific formulation, in fact it has over 20 commonly used recipes to create it. So, the cause of the oral mucositis determines the ingredients which will best treat that specific patients aliment, but it is all labeled magic or miracle mouthwash. This is one common example of how dentists can take advantage of specialized compounded formulations to treat their patients appropriately.
Here are some additional dental related disease states which benefit from compounded therapy:
- Procedural anxiety
- Pain relief
- Teeth whitening
- Dry mouth treated with electrolyte troches
- Gag reflex suppression
- Pain associated with Temporo-Mandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)
- Periodontal infections
- Anticoagulant induced oral bleeding
- Oral ulceration (canker sore) treated with oral rinse
