Among the various routes of drug delivery, transmucosal drug delivery offer distinct advantages over peroral administration for systemic effect. Among various transmucosal routes, buccal mucosa is the most suited for local, as well as systemic delivery of drugs. The unique physiological features make the buccal mucosa as an ideal route for mucoadhesive drug delivery system.Buccal films are the most recently developed dosage form for buccal administration. They have gained importance as efficacious and novel drug delivery systems and are cost effective with a good patient compliance.As buccal films are implied for attachment to the buccal mucosa, they can be formulated to exhibit local as well as systemic action. Buccal film may be preferred over buccal tablet, in terms of flexibility and comfort.The film can be defined as a dosage form that employs a water dissolving polymer, which allows the dosage form to quickly hydrate, adhere and dissolve when placed on the tongue, or in the oral cavity, which results in systemic drug delivery.
