The prevention of the loss of the over five million knocked out teeth is discussed in the article in the dental journal Inside Dental Assisting “Preventive Traumatology”. The use of the Save-A-Tooth® system is featured in this article as the primary and best method that both the general public and healthcare professionals can use to provide a 90% success of reimplanted knocked out teeth. The Save-A-Tooth® system is found in the Complete First Aid kit, the #1 selling first aid kit on-line.
In the article, the author, Dr. Paul Krasner, Professor of Endodontics at Temple University, School of Dentistry, says the key factor in saving any knocked out tooth is to be prepared ahead of time by purchasing a Save-A-Tooth® ahead of time. “Because the cells on the roots of knocked out teeth must be placed in a Save-A-Tooth® within 60 minutes of the accident, there is no time to look for one at the time of the accident. This is why every first aid kit should have this device,” he says.
Unfortunately, some authorities still think the 30-year-old recommendation, milk, a good method of storing knocked out teeth. In this article, Dr. Krasner explains why this is an inferior technology and why the Save-A-Tooth® is far superior. The Save-A-Tooth® system is a six-part scientific device that contains the best cell preserving fluid available and will preserve knocked out teeth for 24 hours until a dentist can re-implant them. Before the Save-A-Tooth was available, milk was the only substitute available to the public that didn’t kill the knocked out teeth. Milk is a poor storage fluid because it does not contain the necessary metabolic components necessary to keep knocked out teeth alive. Some people place the teeth in water and even saliva both of which are very damaging to them.
“The advantage of having a Save-A-Tooth® in the Complete First Aid kit is that it can be available for use anywhere at anytime, at home, schools, automobiles, sports training bags and the workplace,” says Dr. Henry Rankow, Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics. “This can save people’s children’s knocked out teeth and their smiles as well as lower dental bills.” The replacement of just one lost knocked out tooth can be as much as $3-4,000 dollars and $50,000 over a life time since these bridges or implants must be replaced every 7-10 years. So having an inexpensive device like the Complete First Aid kit can save a huge amount of money in the long run.
In the article, Dr. Krasner emphasizes the importance of dentists teaching their patients to be prepared for this devastating accident in the same way that they teach their patients to prevent decay by recommending daily brushing and flossing. Up until recently, the Save-A-Tooth® system was only available in dentists offices but now it is available to the general public. That is what the term, “Preventive Traumatology” means: being prepared for storing knocked out teeth ahead of time.
One of the reasons that the Complete First Aid kit is the #1 selling kit on Amazon.com because, in addition to having the Save-A-Tooth® system, it has the highest quality USA made components versus the cheap Chinese imports which are inferior and can be dangerous.
The Save-A-Tooth® has the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance and is recommended for inclusion in every well stocked first aid kit by most leading medical and dental associations.
