Hillbillies worry about teeth?

Yes. We worry about our teeth contrary to popular belief. I just read a blurb on about a new emergency dental kit. It is used by the Australian military and seems to have really taken off. It was made by a dentist and the instructions are supposed to be easy enough, even for a hillbilly. Check it and Rourke's site out. Good stuff. Y'all have a good 'un.


  1. When at Walmart I picked up something called Temparin Max Lost Filling and Loose Cap Repair by DenTek. It only cost $2.58. I found it near the ora-gel and denture paste area. The little container is supposed to make 8 repairs. There are directions to replace a lost filling or to secure loose crowns, caps, or inlays. It says it provides instant pain relief. It's worth having now if you lose a filling on a Friday afternoon and can't get to the dentist until Monday or Tuesday. I hope I don't even need it but I'm glad it's in my medical kit.

  2. I am sure in a SHTF scenario a dental kit would be valued. Nothing sucks worse than a tooth ache.

  3. SB-I have seen these and wondered what the difference was. I think the ones mentioned are a little tougher and meant to last longer. Thanks for the comment.

    Duke-I'm with you, bud. Nothing says suck like a weekend with a bad tooth. Beer doesn't fix it, BTW.
