Survival Dentistry – A Skill You Need!


Survival Dentistry

When the S Hits The Fan, there are a lot of everyday conveniences we take for granted that will be much, much harder to come by. Taking a trip to the local dentist for a little toothache will definitely be one of those things.

Modern dentistry is a godsend. What used to result in death just a couple centuries ago, can now be treated in relative comfort and with minimal pain. However, when the world falls to pieces, you better have a plan to deal with the inevitable dental problems that you, and your family, will have to deal with.

We researched this topic, and our favorite resource is over at Happy Preppers.

We recommend you read the entire article for all the details, but here’s an overview of their suggestions for survival dental planning:

  • Multiple emergency dental kits. These kits come in a variety of configurations and at various price points. As with most thing prepping related, it usually makes sense to purchase the best option you can afford.
  • Basic dental tool kit.
  • Hurricaine Topical Anesthetic Gel and/or spray (tooth pain relief) – worth its weight in gold when you’re in pain.
  • Braces emergency kit – comes in handy snipping stray wires from braces.
  • They also have a handy list of natural remedies for dental care and pain relief.
