The 20% back to school special price of the Complete First Aid kit is the value of the season
Wayne, Pa. (PRWEB) August 25, 2012
It’s hard to believe, but school is starting in two weeks. Millions of children will be back participating in school and sports activities. Millions of teeth will be knocked out during these activities. Phoenix-Lazerus, Inc. wants to help parents and schools save these knocked out teeth and at the same time care for the minor injuries that occur every day by producing a back to school special on its #1 selling Complete First Aid kit. The Complete First Aid kit normally sells for $25, but as a back to school special, it is selling for a limited time for $19.95 on Amazon.com.
The Complete First Aid kit is #1 selling kit on Amazon.com and is the only first aid kit with the Save-A-Tooth® system which can store and preserve knocked out teeth for 24 hours until they can be reimplanted by a dentist.
“There’s no question that the Complete First Aid kit is the most comprehensive first aid kit available in its price range,” says Dr. Henry Rankow, Professor of Dentistry at Temple School of Dentistry. "It's the only first aid kit that contains a product with the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance," he adds.
In addition to the Save-A-Tooth®, the Complete first aid kit has many items that most other kits don’t have. For example, it has a finger splint, a special splinter and blister remover, a glow stick for night-time visualization, a rescue blanket, and a special blood absorbing compress that is ten times more absorbent than normal gauze.
The incidence of school dental injuries is high. Annually, an estimated seven million school children received medical attention for a sports related injury. During a study of 87 Division I-A football teams 506,297 sports related injuries were recorded over the 15-week study. Of these injuries, 1.6% or a total of 8,100 were forceful impacts to the jaw. Only 5.2% of athletes participating in contact sports always wear their mouth guards, with only 1.7% wear during practice. Without mouth guard protection these athletes are at an increased risk of dental injuries.
There are millions of teeth knocked out in sporting events and practices and in school playgrounds and at home. Over 90% can be saved if a Save-A-Tooth® system is used within 60 minutes of the accident. That’s why it’s so important to be prepared for this injury. If a knocked out tooth isn’t successfully reimplanted, it will cost $3-4,000 to replace immediately and $30,000 over a lifetime. If a Save-A-Tooth® isn’t used, only 10% of knocked out teeth succeed after reimplantation.
For children, the loss of a knocked out tooth is catastrophic. This is because their jaws are still forming and so can’t have a permanent replacement until they are 18. So if an eight year old knocked out three front teeth, he or she will have to wear dentures for ten years.
“In addition to helping save the knocked out teeth, the use of a Save-A-Tooth® can help young children to retain the nerves of these teeth,” says Dr. Paul Krasner, Professor of Dentistry at Temple University School of Dentistry. “If an eight year old’s teeth are placed in a Save-A-Tooth® and reimplanted, the nerves of these teeth can reattach, the teeth can continue normal development and avoid root canal treatment,” he informs.
The Complete First Aid kit is 100% USA made and has only high quality components. “Many other kits are stuffed with lots of adhesive bandages that don’t even work very well,” says Dr. Ed Abramson, Associate Professor of Dentistry at Temple School of Dentistry. “In the imported kits, the adhesive bandages don’t hold very well and slide off when they get wet. I don’t recommend these kits for my patients,” he advises.
“Take advantage of this short term back to school special price and order one today,” says Dr. Krasner.
