Abstract:  Dental practice has expanded beyond its traditions of caring for teeth and gums. Today’s dentists are trained to recognize and treat many different conditions of the head and neck. The increasing demand for individualized treatment continues to create expanding opportunities for pharmacists in the area of dental compounding. The majority of compounded formulations used by dentists are for direct application to the oral cavity, usually in the forms of mouthwashes or oral pastes of powders. Endodontic procedures require a variety of solutions that can be compounded for professional office use only. Examples of all of these types of compounded preparations are provided.
