According to the PCCA (Professional Compounding Centers of America):
"Trips to the dentist do not have to include unnecessary anxiety or discomfort.
For a variety of reasons, a trip to the dentist can occasionally be met with some apprehension.
The culprits are ingrained into our culture – the ominous whirring of a dentist’s drill, the shiny steel of sharp instruments. Tooth pain or not, some patients simply cannot get past the anxiety associated with dental work.
One of the best tools to fight these fears is pharmacy compounding. Compounded medications can lessen the physical discomforts involved in a trip to the dentist and help ease the patient’s anxiety."
