Abstract

Evolution of an existing drug molecule from a conventional form to a novel delivery system can significantly improve its performance in terms of patient compliance, safety, and efficacy. Systemic administration of drugs leads to therapeutic concentrations at the site of infection, but for short period of time and in reduced dosage. To minimize drug degradation, harmful side-effects and to increase drug bioavailability and the fraction of the drug accumulated in the required zone, various drug delivery and drug targeting systems are currently under development. This review article gives an overview of the recent advances in drug delivery system pertaining to dentistry.
