Phoenix-Lazerus, Inc., Maker of Save-A-Tooth Says Lack of Preparation for Knocked out Teeth can Make Children Dentally Handicapped for Life
Date:3/2/2010

Adolescent children are subject to being dentally handicapped for life if the proper proactive precautions are ignored. Being prepared for the occurrence of knocked out teeth by having Save-A-Tooth® systems in a first aid kit can save children a lifetime of misery and huge numbers of dental treatments.

(PRWEB) March 2, 2010 -- Five million teeth are knocked out each year. If a child knocks out two front teeth at the age of eight, because their jaws are still growing, they can’t receive any permanent crowns, bridges or implants to replace them until they are eighteen. This means for the next ten years, the child will have to use a removable type denture. This removable denture, sometimes called a flipper, will have to be remade every year for ten years.

“This is an awful situation for an adolescent”, says Dr. Henry Rankow, Clinical Professor at Temple University. “Children at this age have enough psycho-social adjustment difficulties without adding a problem like this. Dentures are cosmetically unattractive and can fall out at inappropriate times. This can be socially devastating”, Dr. Rankow goes on to say.

This underscores the importance of successfully replanting any knocked out teeth. The key to successful rreplantation of knocked out teeth is being prepared with devices like Save-A-Tooth® (www.saveatooth.com). Although dentistry has made tremendous strides in cosmetic and implant dentistry, all dentists agree that nothing is as good as your own natural teeth.


Even when they turn eighteen and permanent bridges or implants can be placed, the children are still confronted with a lifetime of dental problems and continued expense. The average life of a bridge or crown is 7-15 years. Because of this limited life span, these bridges, crowns and implants must be remade at least six times during their adult life. The lifetime cost of replacing two knocked out front teeth can be $30,000 or more.


Although it may sound harsh, children who do not successfully have their knocked out teeth reimplanted can become dentally crippled for the rest of their lives. This can all be prevented by being informed and prepared by having an inexpensive device called the Save-A-Tooth® system (www.saveatooth.com) in a first aid kit.


Being prepared for dental emergencies takes the same level of preparation as for any other medical emergency. Just as each home should have a medical first aid kit with burn cream, gauze and Band-aids etc, it should include a Save-A-Tooth® to prevent the loss of a knocked out tooth. Using a Save-A-Tooth can increase the success rate of replanted knocked out teeth from ten to ninety percent.

Since knocked out teeth begin to die within fifteen minutes, there is only a small window of time in which to get the teeth properly stored. Teeth stored in a Save-A-Tooth® can stay alive for twenty-four hours until a dentist can be found to reimplant them. Old, antiquated methods of storing teeth, such as milk, continue to be recommended, even by dental experts, even though newer, vastly more effective methods of storage and transportation are inexpensively and universally available.

“What people don’t realize is that the consequences of knocked out teeth can be more profound than breaking, for example, a leg bone,” says Dr. Paul Krasner, Clinical Professor of Endodontics at Temple University School of Dentistry. “If a broken bone is not properly set, it can be re-broken, reset and heal properly. If knocked out teeth are not treated properly within the first hour, they will be rejected following reimplantation and be lost forever. There is no second chance and the person will be crippled by this injury for life.” he emphasizes.

Phoenix-Lazerus say, "Don’t let children become dentally handicapped by lack of preparation. Be prepared."
