The Realities Of Tooth Removal In A SHTF Situation

The Realities Of Tooth Removal In A SHTF Situation - Here is the bottom line on removing teeth. I've been doing it for almost 35 years, and I would be lying if I told you that I thought I could unload one of my own without proper instruments and sufficient local anesthetic. Without "novocaine," taking out an infected or acutely inflamed permanent tooth would be more difficult that using a pliers to remove one of your fingernails. Even if you managed to remove a portion of the tooth, whatever remains will still provide a nice dinner for every bacteria that enters your mouth. Post-extraction infection can be life-threatening, especially if the source of that infection is still nestled in your jaw bone. Even the most potent antibiotics wouldn't control the infection for long.

There are few things in life that can alter physical, mental and emotional states as quickly as a severe toothache. Assuming the offending tooth needs to be removed due to either infection or trauma, it would be prudent to seek the services of a qualified professional. However, if the SHTF prepper has a chopper or …

Common North American Spider Identification Database

Common North American Spider Identification Database - Half the time I am wondering is it venomous or not. In my mind they all are venomous. That's why I kill them. I had a spider that looked very much like a black widow in my doorway the other day and I couldn't even bring myself to squish it thinking that if it really was a black widow and it didn't die, it would hunt me down. Turns out it was just a standard pregnant American House Spider.

I honest to God hate spiders. I can’t even stand the small ones. They just freak me the hell out! Every time I see one I have to either get the wife to move it outside, or I get my shoe and squish it. Only problem is where I live we get big ones, like …

How To Double Your Gas Mileage 2X

How To Double Your Gas Mileage 2X — Well I had always heard the rumors about doing this but never really seen any proof! After watching this video I really think this would work.
