The Complete First Aid kit was selected as one of Gizmodo.com's "Deal of the Day"

“Since The Complete First Aid kit is the #1 selling first aid kit on Amazon.com, this confirms what most people already believe,” says Dr. Paul Krasner, Professor of Dentistry at Temple University, School of Dentistry. “Because it is the only first aid kit that has the Save-A-Tooth® system and has only quality USA made components, it provides every household, school and workplace with the best method of being prepared for any accident.”
Until recently, the Save-A-Tooth® system was only available to professionals like dentists. However, the most important time to have the Save-A-Tooth® is BEFORE a tooth gets knocked out. There are over five million teeth knocked out in the United States each year and all of them have a chance to be saved but only if a Save-A-Tooth® is used within the first sixty minutes of the accident.
“I think what Gizmodo recognized was the great value that the Complete First kit represents,” says Dr. Henry Rankow, Professor of Endodontics at Temple University School of Dentistry. “Aside from the Save-A-Tooth®, it contains crucial items not often found in a first aid kit like a glow stick. What happens when the first aid is needed outside on a dark night and a flashlight is not available? The glow stick gives the light necessary. This is one of the reasons the Complete is great to have in a car,” Dr. Rankow goes on to say.
Not only is the Complete First Aid kit the #1 selling first aid kit on Amazon.com, it is also the #1 gift giving idea in the Health and Personal Care section of the site.
The cost of the loss of knocked out teeth is very high. In an adult, the cost of replacing just one knocked out tooth is $4,000 immediately and $30,000 over a lifetime. If there is a big accident and four front teeth are knocked out, the cost is $16,000 immediately and $60,000 over a lifetime. “When viewed from this perspective," says Dr. Rankow, "I can easily see why Gizmodo.com thought the Complete First Aid kit was a “Deal of the Day.”
The dental consequences of knocked out teeth for young children is even worse. Because their jaw bones are continually developing, a child between 6-18 cannot have a permanent replacement until they are 18. This means that they have to go with a denture for all of these years. This is a very delicate psycho-social time for children and the stigma of having a loose fitting denture at this time in their life can be devastating.
Every home needs a great first aid kit and Gizmodo has indicated what that kit should be.
