What should go in a
dental first aid kit?

While you may have a general first aid kit prepared, dental emergencies can happen at any time. It is also helpful to have an emergency dental first aid kit prepped. Some items that can go in a dental first aid kit include gauze, gloves, a dental mirror, floss, a toothbrush, and a small container that can handle liquid. Each of these items can be helpful until you receive emergency dental care when experiencing a dislodged, chipped, or bleeding tooth.
