A family can save over $30,000 in dental bills by having a Complete First Aid kit at home or in the car
Pottstown, Pa. (PRWEB) November 21, 2011
There are over five million teeth knocked out each year in the United States. All of them can be saved if there is a Complete First Aid kit with a Save-A-Tooth in it at home or in the car. This device is the only one of its kind that has the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance but it must be used within the first hour of the accident. If the Save-A-Tooth® is not used within the first hour, the 10 year old will go without permanent front teeth for another eight years and then will have either bridges or implants placed. Dental bridges only last for seven to ten years so the total cost is well over $30,000 in a lifetime. While she or he is waiting for the eighteenth birthday, she’ll have to have a removable denture which can be socially embarrassing. Nothing replaces a person’s own teeth. The Save-A-Tooth® system is recommended by many leading dental organizations.
So this is why the Complete First Aid kit (http://www.amazon.com/Complete-First--Tooth-Exceeds-Standards/dp/B0043X5WK8/ref=sr_1_8?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1321757212&sr=1-8) is a necessary part of every household. It is the only first aid kit that contains the Save-A-Tooth® system that can store and preserve all knocked out teeth for twenty-four hours. “If these teeth are not placed in a Save-A-Tooth® says Dr. Henry Rankow, Professor of Endodontics at Temple University, School of Dentistry, “the cells on the outside of the knocked out teeth will die and the teeth, even after they are reimplanted, will be rejected by the body”.
The Seal of Acceptance that the Save-A-Tooth® has is difficult to obtain. More than 125 consultants, including members of the ADA's Council on Scientific Affairs and ADA staff scientists, review and declare oral care products safe, effective and worthy of the ADA Seal. The consultants represent all fields relevant to evaluating dental products, including dental materials, microbiology, pharmacology, toxicology and chemistry. In some instances, the ADA may conduct or ask the company to conduct additional testing. Only after a product has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness will the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs award the Seal to that product.
The ADA Seal of Acceptance is designed to help consumers make informed decisions about safe and effective consumer products.
The Complete First Aid kit is composed of parts that are ANSI compliant and made of parts and assembled in the USA. “By having a Complete First Aid kit at home or in your car, you are protected in the same way that you are by having an EpiPen for your allergic children,” says Dr. Paul Krasner, Scientific Advisor to the Journal of Endodontics.
“Although it seems bland, the Complete First Aid kit make the perfect holiday gift”, says Dr. Ed Abrams, Assistant Professor of Endodontics at Temple University School of Dentistry. “It’s practical, is available for all emergencies and is inexpensive”. In these economic stressful times, shouldn’t one of the gifts you give be more than something that is thrown away two days after Christmas?
