First off, I hate going to the dentist. More accurately, I hate getting my teeth touched by a dentist. But obviously that isn’t my point…although germane to this posting.
The more I thought about it, the more I worried that you and I might get caught with a dental problem and the grid went down…hard down, as in TEOTWAWKI. And with the way current events are going…well, that may not be that much of a stretch… TEOTWAWKI.
So two things: 1) get any needed dental work done as soon as possible, 2) have an emergency dental kit, or ten, in storage.
So I do have some emergency dental stuff in storage…
- DenTek Instant Oral Pain Relief Maximum Strength Kit for Toothaches. Contains Benzocaine, a local anesthetic (numbing medication). How many times might you wish you had some local anesthetic for any number of reasons besides dental issues.
- DenTek Temparin Max Lost Filling and Loose Cap Repair Kit
- Adventure Medical Kits Dental Medic Travel First Aid Kit for Teeth
For a minute I want you to imagine your worst toothache, your worst cavity, your worst tooth experience. Now, imagine that without access to a dentist. Or, you had access to a dentist but he didn’t have access to much of today’s technology or medical capabilities. Do you think you would rather head into TEOTWAWKI with all your dental work done? Hey, your choice.
Hey, go get that dental work done while you can enjoy all the benefits that are available today. You never know when the grid goes down…and you are stuck with a dental problem.
Don’t be that guy!
Note: No, I am not ignoring the important stuff going on, nor have I forgotten my promise to write a couple different series of articles. I am in the process of building a better fence around my house and infrastructure. And yes, going to the dentist. So be patient…they are coming soon. Some of it is very, very important!
