You might be able to mentally block out some of the pain from a turned ankle or banged-up arm when you’re hurting and in the middle of nowhere. But it’s really hard to ignore pain when it’s right there inside your head, namely in the form of dental issues. A cracked tooth, a lost filling, or a bad toothache can make crybabies of the most hardened outdoorsmen. If you haunt the backwoods and wild places enough, it’s only a matter of time before your teeth turn against you. Thankfully, a little bit of dental gear can go a long way to relieve pain and prevent further harm. The following items can be added as a dental module to your first aid kit, and will allow you to hold your own until you get to a dentist.
