Dental Emergency Travel Kit
May 21, 2012
-- So, you are perhaps a couple of hundred miles away from your trusted hometown dentist (whom you’ve been with forever) when you realize that you just broke or cracked a tooth. What do you do? Do you try to locate the hospital emergency room or hope for the best—maybe wasting a day in the process? Do you spend your vacation time looking in the Yellow Pages for a dentist? Suppose you are in a foreign country? Then all bets are off!
Well, you no longer have to worry. For a few dollars you can make your own “Dental Emergency Travel Kit” that will come to your aid if—and when—something happens to you or a family member in an unfamiliar place.
“It’s basically as simple as taking a walk down the aisle of any pharmacy and picking out a few essential items,” says Dr. Charles Fields, creator of the Dental Emergency Travel Kit. “The items that I recommend should take care of over 90% of the most common dental emergencies that you would experience!”
“Just purchase the items, place them in a clear plastic cosmetic case (also available at the pharmacy), and for about twelve dollars you will have your own Dental Emergency Travel Kit that you can carry with you every time you travel!” Dr. Fields says traveling with this kit could save you time and aggravation should a dental problem ever arise when you are out of town.
To receive a list of the items that Dr. Fields recommends in the Dental Emergency Travel Kit, or if you have any other questions about dentistry, please contact his office at Fields Family Dentistry at 717-697-3400.
