No one enjoys going to the dentist’s office. In fact, fear of the dentist is prevalent in the United States, with about three-fourths of the adult population having mild to severe fear of seeing a dentist. However, the Compounding Center at Juro’s Medical and Pharmacy can provide a way to make your next visit to the dentist less stressful.
Our compounding pharmacists, in cooperation with a dentist, can prescribe you medications to ease your anxiety about dental procedures, as well as for numbing and pain relief in a form that you can tolerate. For example, most local anesthetics in dentistry are administered with a needle. For patients with needle anxiety, we can create an anesthetic in several other forms, such as topical gels, pastes, lozenges or even lollipops to ease your apprehension.
Another stressor with dental procedures and care that we can help you with is the taste of certain medications. Many dental rinses, solutions and gels have an accompanying taste that is less than tasteful. For this problem, Juro’s offers flavoring solutions delivered in a form that you prefer. A dry socket mixture that is normally bitter and leaves a bad taste in your mouth can be compounded to taste like chocolate with the simple addition of chocolate flavor. Imagine skipping the acrid taste of your tooth-bleaching system and instead experiencing the zesty taste of citrus mint. What kid wouldn’t skip getting a shot for an anesthetic in favor of a grape sucker that did the same thing?
Our mission in dental compounding is to make you feel as comfortable as possible in going to the dentist, having a procedure done or practicing better dental health at home. If you find yourself cringing at the thought of going to the dentist or experiencing the terrible taste of your oral rinse, contact the Compounding Center at Juro’s Medical and Pharmacy and find a solution to your dental hang-ups.Tags: compounding, dental compounding, pharmacy
