Be Prepared for a Dental Emergency During the Holidays
Date:11/16/2009

NEW YORK, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly every household has some sort of a first aid kit filled with bandages, antiseptic, ointments and the like. But how many people plan ahead for dental emergencies?

According to a recent survey by Majestic Drug Company, a leading provider of oral care products, although one in six Americans had a dental emergency during the past 12 months, most were not prepared to deal with the problem.

"You keep medical supplies on hand for cuts and bruises, but what about your teeth? It's important to be prepared for a dental emergency in case one happens, especially if the emergency occurs on a weekend or holiday when your dentist isn't available," according to Brian Gold, D.D.S., who practices in Monticello, NY.

While a dental first aid kit can never replace the care of a dentist, it can ease the pain and discomfort until you get to your dentist. Majestic Drug Company suggests keeping the following items on hand for a dental emergency and placing them in a convenient container for easy access.

  • Temporary dental cement such as Dentemp® O.S. which can be used to temporarily replace a filling or secure a crown.
  • A dental pain reliever that contains benzocaine or oil of cloves such as Orajel.
  • Sensitive teeth can be treated with special toothpaste such as Sensodyne or Sensitive.
  • Ibuprofen such as Advil or Motrin can ease the pain from the affected tooth.
  • Keep soft dental floss such as Glide or Reach on hand.
  • For anyone with dentures a denture repair product, such as D.O.C.® Denture Repair Kit, is a must-have.
  • Tweezers
  • Gauze

Remember, emergency dental solutions are by their very nature temporary. Make sure to seek professional assistance from your dentist as soon as possible.
