In recent years, novel drug delivery systems are becoming popular commercially which are capable of improving the patient convenience and therapeutic efficacy. An attempt is made in the present investigation to explore the possibility of developing suitable dental preparation of Norfloxacin for better treatment of dental diseases. Attempt was made to formulate Norfloxacin as targeted sustained release dental implant which can be directly placed near the site of action in periodontitis and also to study various pharmaceutical parameters like physicochemical, stability and drug release characteristics.
