Dentistry

Fusion Apothecary can design specialized medications to treat pain and discomfort and to assist healing in post-dental surgery and/or routine dental work as well as for a range of afflictions that affect the patient’s mouth, gums, and lips.

Medical and post-operative conditions:

  • Burning Mouth Syndrome
    Also referred to as glossodynia, this syndrome causes a burning sensation in the mouth and can be attributed to scalding of the mouth, among other causes.
  • Canker Sores
    A small, painful sore or lesion that develops in the mouth or around the gums but is not contagious (unlike cold sores).
  • Cold Sores
    A fever blister is a viral infection that can form around the border of one’s lips and is caused by the herpes simplex virus.
  • Dry Mouth
    Reduced salivary flow can cause dry mouth syndrome, which is an uncomfortable and unhealthy state change in saliva composition.
  • Exaggerated gag reflex
    An abnormally active gag reflex can contribute to a gagging problem.
  • Excessive Salivation
    Hypersalivation is the exact opposite of dry mouth and can cause discomfort as the composition of one’s saliva is not in its optimal, healthy state.
  • Mucositis
    Oral mucositis involves painful inflammation of the membrane and cells lining the digestive tract and can usually take the form of ulceration as a result of chemotherapy.
  • Oral Sedation
    Various drugs can be used for sedation dentistry including diazepam, triazolam, zaleplon, lorazepam, and hydroxyzine.
  • Oral Thrush
    A fungal infection on the lining of the mouth, which is considered an abnormal growth, and can cause pain if uncontrolled.
  • Pain and infection
    Pain as well as infection can occur in the mouth and gums naturally and after dental surgery.
  • Periodontitis
    A gum infection which can cause damage to the jawbone as well as your gums.
  • Stomatitis
    This condition known as an inflamed, sore mouth can occur anywhere in the mouth and can affect one’s ability to eat and speak.
  • Temporo-Mandibular Junction/ Joint Dysfunction (TMJ)
    Pain, immobility and discomfort in the jaw are symptoms that typically accompany TMJ.
