Most parents have a first aid kit that they travel with all the time, whether it is to the park or to a doubleheader for a traveling baseball game for their kids.
I want to write about a kit with necessary items for dental emergencies. When playing sports and being outdoors over the summer, a good dental emergency kit can make a huge difference so you are prepared when accidents happen.
If a child’s whole tooth is knocked out:
The number one thing to do is put that tooth directly into a glass of milk. So parents, while you are packing up the flip flops, juice boxes, and sandwiches make sure to fill a container of milk and put that in the cooler too, just in case.
If your child’s orthodontic brackets break:
Broken brackets can be easily fixed by adding just a little dental wax to your first aid kit.
Everyone carries dental floss with them when they travel, but this is another very important part of a health kit. Dental floss has so many different uses and should be carried with you at all times. This is a small item that can easily be stored.
Most people do not know how important taking care of your teeth outside of the morning and the evening is. These are just a few simple tips to get you through those summer or winter activities.
