Whether it's due to a single emergency or a full-on disaster situation, there are sure to be times where a medical professional can not be found and you're left to your own devices. The same is doubly true when it comes to your dental health, because this is an area that is more likely to be overlooked when preparing for other potential realities, such as having enough food to avoid starvation in a crisis.
