Many homes are equipped with medical kits for treating cuts, bruises and fractures, but many don’t have kits for treating injuries and other problems in the mouth. Sometimes, teeth problems can arise from poor practices we did or didn’t know were harmful to our oral health, and other times, trouble might just come finding us. A dental first aid is no replacement for an appointment with our dentist, but it sure can help make the restoration process as smooth and effective as possible. They can help you get a speedy recovery from loose or broken teeth, dislodged filling, and other similar dental emergencies.
HOW USEFUL IS A DENTAL EMERGENCY KIT?
A dental emergency kit contains treatment equipment and materials you’ll normally find well-stocked in our offices. We do use many items in your regular dental emergency kit most times to numb pain temporarily and prime patients for further examination and treatment.
Whether at our offices or in your home, workplace or playground, the use of dental first aid kits can help prevent permanent tooth loss or the deterioration of an infected site.
