Why use topical or Transdermal medications for dental problems?
Topical or Transdermal {trans = through; dermal = the skin} medications are compounded to enhance the delivery of medication to the area that requires special attention. These can include gels, ointments, creams, lotions, and lip balms. These formulations rapidly enter the blood stream and have a low side effect profile. Some of the topical preparations that our patients might use include:
  • Tri-caine topical gel which consists of 20% benzocaine, 6% lidocaine, and 4% tetracaine is a great method to numb the area before doing a simple dental procedure or before injecting the much dreaded “SHOT”.
  • Topical NSAIDS can be used for painful ulceration, oral and perioral pain (neuropathies or neuralgias), and sore muscles of the jaw due to long duration of dental procedures. Also, Transdermal NSAIDS and cyclobenzapine can be used to relieve pain resulting from temporal-mandibular joint disorder (TMJ). This formulation can also be applied to the aching neck and hands of dentists and dental technicians. Studies have shown that transdermal NSAIDS have a significantly higher tissue level of the medication when applied to the area topically than through the traditional oral dosage formulations. Furthermore, topical NSAID formulations can also circumvent the uncomfortable side effects of NSAIDS such as gastrointestinal irritation. In addition to this, topical NSAIDS are advantageous to patients because they can be less costly than other pain medication alternatives.
The topical/transdermal preparations that we can prepare for our patients so that the pain and spasms associated with their TMD/TMJ can be controlled includes:
  • Ketoprofen 10%, Magnesium 5% gel
  • Ketoprofen 10%, Cyclobenzaprine 1% PLO
  • Diclofenac 5%, Magnesium 5% gel
  • Depending on the type of pain, a combination of an NSAID with an anesthetic such as lidocaine or tetracaine, and/or gabapentin or carbamazapine for nerve pain can be formulated.
Unique Oral Delivery
When patients have problems taking medications, we have the solution. How about a lollipop that contains the medication you need and tastes great. In addition to lollipops, we can also make frozen popsicles, chewable gummy treats, solutions, troches, or even medicated toothpaste. These formulations are great for children and geriatric patients. We also customize medications for diabetic patients (sugar-free), chemotherapy patients (alcohol-free), and gastrointestinal irritation (lactose-free) for patients with gastrointestinal irritations. These formulations and delivery systems can greatly increase patient compliance and procedure outcomes. Some of these products include:
  • Xylitol gummy treats are great for the oral health of any patient because it decreases plaque formation by inhibiting bacteria’s ability to stick to teeth.
  • Topical antibiotics or anti-fungal formulated into flavored lollipops are an excellent way to ensure medication absorption in the oral cavity.
  • Anti-gag troches can also be formulated to suppress the gag reflex. These contain a variety of electrolytes and are retained intraorally a few minutes before the start of the procedure.
  • Chlorhexadine can be formulated into a gel or toothpaste for patients with periodontal disease. These formulations are useful when patients are not able to swish and spit.
  • Tranexamic acid solution can also be prepared as mouthwash to prevent post oral surgery bleeding without dose modification of oral anticoagulants.
