Survival preps often include food and various supplies for your stockpile. But before you forget, you must also prepare a dental kit so you can address minor dental emergencies when you are unable to reach a dentist in a post-SHTF world. (h/t to DoomAndBloom.net)
The best way to prevent dental emergencies is to take good care of your oral health. A toothache doesn’t sound like a big deal until you’re in a post-SHTF world with no way to leave your house and reach a dentist.
Brush your teeth every day and floss to prevent plaque buildup. If you don’t take care of your oral health, even a simple toothache can interfere with your preps.
What happens if you have dental problems after disaster strikes?
Keep your dental kit portable so you can easily bring it with you if you need to bug-out. Include hypoallergenic nitrile gloves and face masks to maintain proper hygiene when dealing with dental emergencies.
You’ll also need these other items in your dental kit:
Note that there are many kinds of extractors for different types of teeth. Try to include these extractors in your dental kit:
Before you start examining someone’s mouth, wash your hands and wear a pair of gloves.
Always clean or sterilize your instruments between exams. Use alcohol or a bleach solution if there was no blood involved. You’ll need to clean your tools in boiling water if they touch blood after an exam.
Never attempt dental procedures if you have no experience treating dental conditions and defer to an experienced dentist whenever possible.
Before SHTF, maintain oral health to prevent any dental emergencies. However, in a post-SHTF world, you may have to take matters into your own hands. After identifying the cause of the patient’s concern, use the tools in your dental kit to deal with any dental problems.
