Below, we go into further detail about what dental compounding entails and what costs you may need to prepare for when you go to fill your prescription.
Who Needs Compounded Dental Medications?
There are several reasons why someone might need customized medication. For some people, standard medication doses are too high or low. Through drug compounding, these people can get the specific doses they need.
Other people are unable to take certain medications because of allergies to the ingredients used to formulate the drug. With drug compounding, these harmful ingredients can be removed and replaced with ones that will not adversely affect the patient.
For dental patients specifically, you might benefit from dental compounding by getting specially flavored medications or lollipops, for example. Some of the different situations in which you might get a prescription for a compounded dental medicine include:
- If you have treatment anxiety
- For pain relief
- Treatment of canker sores
- Treatment for ulcers in the mouth
- Tooth whitening
- Treatment for gum disease
Costs of Prescriptions for Dental Compounding
If you were planning to get your dental medications paid for by your insurance company, be aware that since compounded drugs aren’t approved for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), most health insurance companies refuse to cover the costs.
But compounded medications have become increasingly popular. And many health insurers are beginning to provide coverage for these essential pharmaceuticals. When you talk to your insurance company, don’t forget to ask about reimbursement for any out-of-pocket costs you might have to pay up front for your compounded dental medications.
