    This book is an absolute essential for any survival library. Things you would think are simple just aren’t.

    Where There is No Dentist: Amazon Prime $16.15
    Tools and Required Implements:
    Dental Work/Extraction Kits $10-$160
    Dental Picks w/Mirror $9.99
    Temporary (6 month) Fillings: Zinc Oxide/Clove Oil, All Temp Fillings
    Permanent Fillings: Glass Ionomer Automix, All Glass Ionomer
    Injectible Lidocaine
    Sterile Syringes (3cc is fine)
    Luer Lock Needles (18 and 24/25guage)
    Fish Antibiotics (Penicillin)
    Erythromycin (for those allergic to Penicillin)
    Schedule H Antibiotics from India
    It seems like everything that I look into when it comes to survival is not simple. You would think that the extent of survival dentistry you need to know doesn’t extend further than “yank the darn tooth,” but that is not the case. I sat down and actually read the book, “Where There Is No Dentist,” by Murray Dickson, and I highly suggest that you buy this $16 book, and some of the tools and medications that will make substantive dentistry possible. There are very few non-fatal injuries as debilitating as tooth pain (disk pain of the back being the only one I can think of worse), and if left to fester, tooth maladies themselves can be fatal. The book was apparently written to help volunteer medical workers in African villagers, but it includes everything that you will need in a survival situation.

    A lot of the book is meant to teach the basics of oral care, as well as how to teach it, but there are also some priceless guidelines for everything from diagnosing an abscess to extracting a tooth, including important information on how to inject Lidocaine.

    What I found the most disheartening was how confident I was that I could do dental work with no training. I actually bought dental instruments on Ebay years ago, but there are all kinds of issues covered in the book that you wouldn’t think about. What if someone’s jaw is broken and the teeth feel loose? The book shows you how to use an old needle and stitches to make a splint for the teeth, so you can wait for the bones to heal. What if someone has a bad puss filled infection? Do you extract the teeth? No, you give antibiotics and wait for the infection to come down first.

    Good book to have. Friendly advise..utilize if there is no dentist. Dental school is like MD school plus all the specialty dental classes. You will not be a dentist by reading one book. If your stuck in a survival situation be prepared like urinal cake.
