Custom Compounded Dental Preparations
Do You Remember DYCLONE?
Dyclone was a commercial product that was removed from the market by it’s manufacturer. I don’t know why, but it wasn’t for any health reason. The FDA says that the company removed it for their own reasons and it had nothing to do with the safety or efficacy of the product.
Our compounded Dyclonine Oral Dental Rinse is a topical anesthetic in the form of a rinse that patients can swish around for one minute to anesthetize gingival and palatal tissue. It is useful for hygiene patients who want some anesthesia but don’t want you poking their mouth with a sharp needle. It’s been reported that dyclonine will help the sensitive patient who gags during impressions.
We make this preparation – a replacement for Dyclone – in our compounding lab in Aurora, Illinois. We make it in the ORIGINAL STRENGTH, 0.5% and a stronger version, 1%.
We compound this preparation especially for dental offices in Illinois.
The standard flavor is a light cinnamon, but other flavors are available. The flavor choice is yours and we don’t charge extra for it.
The common size bottle is 16 ounces (480ml), but you are not limited to that size. Our price list is down below on this page. We send the preparation by UPS Ground. In Illinois it usually arrives in your office a day after we ship it.
DYCLONINE rinse does not need to be shipped under refrigeration, but once received in the dental office, it should be stored in the refrigerator. This improves flavor and helps maintain stability.
Directions: Patient should rinse for one minute with about 45ML to provide decreased sensitivity for the entire mouth.
We can compound everything you want – even if it’s uncommon, removed from the market, or just hard to find.
Let us know what you want and we’ll get to work on it for you.
