If you’re making a dental first-aid kit and you’re not sure what to include in it, then you have come to the right blog. Our doctor, Dr. James Thomason, would like to help you because it’s important to have the tools and products that will help you the most. That way you can care for your teeth, gums, and mouth while you wait to visit our office after a dental injury. The tools and products he encourages you to include in the kit are:

-Medical-grade exam gloves (To examine the injury)

-A dental mirror and flashlight (To examine the problem with clarity, even at night)

-Save-a-Tooth System (To keep a knock-out tooth alive until you visit your dentist)

-Temporary over-the-counter dental cement (To re-cement a dental crown or filling temporarily)

-Dental wax (To deal with mouth irritation)

-Toothbrush and tweezers (To treat a lost crown, lost filling, or chipped tooth)

-Sterile gauze (To control bleeding)

-Tea bag (To control bleeding)

-Floss (To alleviate pain from a stuck object in the gums)
