Prescribing Guidelines for Commonly Used Medications

  • 1757 Accesses

Abstract

A wide range of topical and systemic medications are used in the management of oral medicine conditions. Within the United States, the vast majority of these therapies are not FDA approved for the specific conditions discussed in this book and are therefore considered “off-label” indications. This chapter provides prescribing guidelines and considerations to ensure that the included medications are used in an appropriate and safe manner for the management of oral diseases.
