Being prepared for this accident is the key to success and saving the high costs of replacing knocked out teeth
Pottstown, PA (PRWEB) February 14, 2012
February is National Dental Health Month says Phoenix-Lazerus, inc. and reminds people that there are over five million teeth knocked out each year in the United States. The replacement of just one unsuccessfully reimplanted knocked out tooth can cost at least $3,000-$4,000 in dental bills initially and $30,000 over a lifetime. If four teeth are knocked out, it will cost $120,000. All knocked out teeth can be reimplanted and saved if they are treated immediately and in the right way.
“Being prepared for this accident is the key to success and saving the high costs of replacing knocked out teeth,” says Dr. Henry Rankow, Professor of Dentistry at Temple University, School of Dentistry. “The best way to be prepared is to have the new medical emergency device, the Save-A-Tooth System at the time of the accident since knocked out teeth will die within the first hour,” he continues. As recommended by most leading health institutions, all well-stocked first aid kits should have a Save-A-Tooth system.
“If a family, school or business facility is looking for the best first aid kit available, then the Complete First Aid kit made by Phoenix-Lazerus, inc. (http://www.Completefirstaid.net) is what they should buy,” says Dr. Paul Krasner, Professor of Dentistry at Temple University, School of Dentistry.
Most people agree with this statement, since the Complete First Aid kit is now the highest rated first aid kit on Amazon.com. “Amazon.com is the embodiment of free market product voting in the world,” Dr. Krasner goes on to say. “Since anyone in the world can view any product and evaluate it independently without advertising, people will choose the product that they feel is the best and gives them the best value. Achieving the highest rating on Amazon.com says something about the quality and value of the Complete First aid kit.”
When asked why the Complete First Aid kit has risen so high in the ranking, Dr. Henry Rankow, Professor of Dentistry at Temple University, School of Dentistry and diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics responds, “people realize what a great value the kit is. Many people do not realize that knocked out teeth can be saved. When they find out that if they have a Complete First Aid kit, over 90% of knocked out teeth can be saved. A purchase of only $25 can save $4000 initially and over $30,000 over a lifetime.
All knocked out teeth can be saved but they must be treated within the first hour of the accident. That’s why Save-A-Tooth® systems are such an essential part of every first aid kit. When an accident occurs such as an automobile accident, there are often more serious injuries like punctured lungs and broken legs. Saving knocked out teeth is a low priority, but in the long run not reimplanting them can ultimately be more costly than either of the more serious injuries. “Broken bones and punctured lungs heal without any serious long-term consequences,” says Dr. Krasner, but four lost knocked out teeth will have life-long consequences. The cost to replace four teeth is so high that having a Complete First Aid kit with a Save-A-Tooth® in the car trunk can be a invaluable component to have available.”
In addition to the Save-A-Tooth®, the Complete First Aid kit contains not only all of the essential first aid kit essentials like adhesive bandages, burn cream and antiseptic wipes, but it also contains rarely found items such as a thermal blanket and glow stick. What makes it such a great value is the Save-A-Tooth® system
“Some people think that milk is a good medium for storing knocked out teeth,” Dr. Rankow goes on to say. “This was true thirty years ago, but there is a new, more advanced technology that has replaced it. Most people don’t know that there is a better way to store knocked out teeth than milk.”
Dr. Rankow recommends that every home, car, school and ambulance should have a Complete First Aid kit available to help save the over five million teeth that are knocked out each year.
