Items To Include in a Dental First Aid Kit converted by

-Pain Medication. This can include Motrin or Aleve. Just something to relieve the pain until you can see your dentist for better pain relief. Do not use aspirin as this will inhibit clotting. -Cotton or Gauze pads. These come in handy if there is any bleeding from an injury or even to have the patient bite down on to relieve some of the pressure. It also comes in handy if you have irritation from your braces or a denture. You can place the cotton or gauze in between the appliance and the sore to relive some of the discomfort. -Wax. Another handy item to cover up areas of irritation like orthodontic brackets or wires. -Floss. This can come in handy to remove food debris that gets lodged between teeth and beneath the gums that cause pain and discomfort. -“Save A Tooth� System. This is for transporting teeth that have fallen out so that you have a better chance for long term survival once re implanted. -Teabags. These are great for stopping bleeding following oral surgery or even a trauma in the mouth. Research suggests that bags containing tea from the plant camellia sinensis is better than herbal tea for this purpose. Tea bags may also be soothing if you bite your lip, cheek, or tongue. -Denture Adhesive Paste. This can be used even if you do not have dentures. In addition to using it to secure dentures, it can also be used to temporarily secure a crown or bridge that has fallen out. Agood example of this is Fixodent.

-Temporary filling material. This material tends to work better than wax for temporary replacement of a missing filling. -Dental Mirror and Spatula. The mirror can come in handy if the emergency is back in the mouth and the spatula is necessary for using any temporary filling material in the mouth. -Instant Ice Packs. These packs can come in handy if there is any trauma to the mouth or face. -Topical Anesthetic. This can give temporary relief

These can help remove foreign objects lodged between your teeth. -Orabase. Apaste used for healing canker sores or sore mouths. -Dentist Contact Information. Most dentists can be reached after hours via an emergency telephone line.
