Save-A-Tooth Helps Emergency Medical Technicians, Dentists and Other Health Care Professionals Save Beautiful Smiles

A new revolutionary patent design has been granted to Phoenix-Lazerus that allows a superior method of storing knocked out teeth during transport and provides emergency medical technicians, school nurses, dentists, athletic trainers and other health care professionals a better method for treating accident victims.

(PRWEB) January 8, 2010 -- A new revolutionary patent design has been granted to Phoenix-Lazerus that allows a superior method of storing knocked out teeth during transport and provides emergency medical technicians, school nurses, dentists, athletic trainers and other health care professionals a better method for treating accident victims.

Ten times more successful than any other method, the Save-A-Tooth® helps schools, athletic trainers, dentists, and families to save their children’s smiles

Phoenix Lazerus, the manufacturer of Save-A-Tooth®, the leading product to store and preserve knocked out teeth has been granted a patent for a new design for an enhanced method of saving and storing knocked-out teeth.

The new patent design permits the transportation of up to eight teeth, each with their own cocoon-like compartment. These cocoons prevent virtually no movement of the knocked out teeth during transport thus preventing damage to the tooth root cells.

The new design is meant to be an aid to Emergency Medical Technicians at the scene of an automobile accident. Many times, there are serious injuries to an accident victim, like a punctured lung or a deep laceration, which need immediate attention. The victim may also have had several teeth knocked out. If an ambulance is prepared and has several Save-A-Tooth’s on board, each of the victim’s teeth can be collected, placed into a separate Save-A-Tooth® and brought to the hospital. The teeth, being safe for 24 hours, can be replanted after the victim is stabilized. This allows all health care professionals to save knocked out teeth, thus expanding the scope of their treatment. In the past, teeth knocked out in accidents could not be reimplanted until after the patient was stabilized and these teeth would be dead. Since the Save-A-Tooth® system keeps teeth alive for 24 hours, the accident victim can keep all his or her body parts.

The new design has two interlocking components that form egg-like compartments that restrain each individual knocked out tooth so that the delicate root cells cannot be damaged during transportation to a hospital. The structure of the compartments have mesh-like holes that permit the Hank’s Balanced Salt Solution to gently wash off any debris that might have been attached to the tooth and let it float to the bottom of the container.

Dr. Henry Rankow, a Professor of Endodontics at Temple University School of Dentistry, says, “one of the most critical aspects of obtaining success after a knocked out tooth is replanted is preventing damage to the delicate tooth root cells while it is transported to a dentist. The Save-A-Tooth design protects these cells as opposed to placing the teeth into a cup of milk or a tissue. Dr. Paul Krasner, also a Professor of Endodontics at Temple University, says, “placing knocked out teeth in a cup of milk is only a half-way measure and is no substitute for a scientific method, like Save-A-Tooth®, for storing knocked out teeth.”

The new design of the Save-A-Tooth® still contains a Hank’s balanced salt solution that is the most optimum medium to keep knocked out teeth alive for up to twenty four hours. Research has shown that when a Save-A-Tooth® is purchased ahead of time by schools, athletic trainers, dentists, families with children and ambulances, the Save-A-Tooth® system can save up to 91% of knocked out teeth.

The Save-A-Tooth® has the American Dental Association seal of acceptance and is FDA approved for marketing. It is used by most professional sports teams, schools and the US Olympic Teams. For more information go to
