This YouTube video shows that by using the Save-A-Tooth®, over five million teeth that are knocked out annually in the United States and Canada during sports and school playground activities, automobile accidents and in the home can be simply, safely and inexpensively saved. With the use of this new scientific device, over 90 percent of these teeth can now be stored, transported, successfully reimplanted and saved for life. This is ten times better than using nothing at all.
Although a popular recommendation thirty years ago, the placement of knocked out teeth in milk has been replaced as the best method of storage by the Save-A-Tooth®. Milk is limited in its effectiveness because it lacks necessary nutritive factors for keeping teeth alive and, contrary to popular belief, is not readily available at most accident scenes like remote sports playing fields, hockey rinks or automobile accidents.
“Knocked out teeth need to be protected while being carried to the dentist. Even finger pressure on the tooth root will kill the cells,” says Dr. Rankow, Professor of Dentistry at Temple University, School of Dentistry.
There are countless places along the way from the accident scene to the dentist at which irreversible damage to the knocked out tooth can occur. If, for example, the storage fluid spills out or the glass container holding the teeth shatters, the knocked out teeth will be damaged and success will be less likely after re-implantation.
Once knocked out teeth are placed into a Save-A-Tooth® system, however, they are safe and protected from damage for twenty-four hours. Sometimes, like in an automobile accident, there are more serious injuries like a punctured lung or a broken arm, that need to be attended to first. By having a Save-A-Tooth® system ahead of time, a parent or first responder can attend to a suffering accident victim without having to worry about the knocked out teeth. In fact, once placed in a Save-A-Tooth®, knocked out teeth are safe for 24 hours and the patient can be stabilized and the knocked out teeth replanted later.
“Being informed and prepared for a tooth being knocked out can mean the difference between a lifetime of dental problems and very high dental bills” says, Dr. Krasner. “Millions of teeth are knocked out every year but can be saved if people know what to do when an accident occurs,” he adds.
“The Save-A-Tooth® is not merely a better storage fluid but an entire scientific methodology that provides the maximum potential for successfully saving knocked out teeth”, Dr. Krasner explains.
Dr. Rankow, Professor of Dentistry at Temple University, compares Save-A-Tooth® with an EpiPen. “When a severely allergic child is stung by a bee, if an EpiPen is not available immediately, the child may die. The same situation exists with knocked out teeth. The Save-A-Tooth® must be available ahead of time in home first aid kits, sports team training bags, hospital emergency rooms and ambulances, “ he recommends. “This year for Christmas, instead of giving candy that causes tooth loss, give a Save-A-Tooth® that saves teeth as a stocking stuffer,” he adds.
Phoenix-Lazerus, Inc. manufactures and distributes the Save-A-Tooth® system and the Complete First Aid kit. It has been in business since 2001 and is dedicated to producing products completely made in the USA with 100% USA-made parts. It is also the tooth transportation system in the Store-A-Tooth system, the leading transporter and cryogenic storage system for dental stem cells.
