Survivalists know that you need emergency equipment and, more importantly, knowledge to use said equipment when you don’t have access to a physician or medical facility.
While we often think about trauma medicine and basic first aid when gathering supplies and training, a dental emergency can be just as debilitating as any other medical issue. If you’ve ever had a toothache or a dental abscess, you know how painful and distracting a dental problem can be.
What do you do when you can’t get an appointment or head to the emergency dentist? Hoping it gets better is a terrible strategy. If the dental issue causes an infection, the situation can quickly go from a painful distraction to a potentially deadly medical emergency.
As Tyler discusses in this video, there are many natural and common remedies that you can turn to when you don’t have access to a dentist. Plus, the book Survival MD: What to Do When There’s No Doctor offers advice on the prevention of common dental issues. The adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” holds especially true in a survival situation.
This dental care and prevention information is just a tiny portion of what’s available in Survival MD: What to Do When There’s No Doctor. Take a look at our YouTube and social media accounts for more lessons from this excellent resource.
