He’s done it again! Your hyperactive child has fallen for the umpteenth time and now his front tooth has been knocked out! What to do?! Save you and your child angst as well as prolonged and costly treatment by maximizing the chance for knocked-out teeth to be replanted. Singapore, 22 May 2008 – Finally….Your hyperactive Child’s Knocked-Out Tooth Can Now Be Saved….And So Can Your Life Savings!! We are pleased to announce that Save-A-Tooth(r) Emergency Tooth Preserving System from the USA is now available in Singapore. It is the only devise commercially available to manage avulsed tooth (commonly known as Knocked-Out tooth) that has the American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance and the U.S. Food Drug Administration (FDA) Approval. The Save-A-Tooth(r) device was developed by Dr Paul R. Krasner, a professor at Temple University School of Dentistry. This patented 6-part system is will help to keep the cells of the tooth alive from the moment of the accident and during transportation from the accident site to your dentist. Dr Krasner’s system addresses the two primary causes of tooth loss as a result of replantation failure: · Crushing damage of delicate tooth cells en route to your dentist · Tooth cell death due to dehydration The system uses Hank’s Balanced Salt Solution (HBSS). HBSS is a sterile pH balanced fluid which is the optimal transport medium that can keep the fragile periodontal ligament cells (tooth cells) viable extra-orally for up to 24 hours and provides the dental pulp the highest chance of revascularisation. This HBSS is contained within a scientifically engineered transport system to suspend and protect the tooth from additional trauma. The transport medium used to store avulsed teeth prior to replantation is critical for the long term prognosis of replanted teeth. This will give the dentist/doctor additional time to manage other important aspects of the accident eg fracture, bleeding and radiological investigations etc. All that, while trying to pacify a frightened and crying child. Most parents, caregivers and patients usually bring the knocked-out tooth to the dentist in the hope that it can be replanted. However, if the initial crucial steps necessary to keep the tooth viable for replantation are not taken, the chance of a successful replantation is very much compromised. Conventional knowledge claims that submerging the tooth in milk or saliva will preserve it. However, these fluid medium are not sterile and do not continue to supply life-sustaining nutrients to the tooth cells. Frequently, without proper storage, within two hours the tooth is dead. For the tooth to be successfully replanted, the periodontal ligament cells (the thin layer of cells surrounding the tooth that attaches it to the bone) have to be kept alive. Once the tooth is out of a person’s mouth, the periodontal ligament cells begin to die. Cell death begins in just 15 minutes. Our modern active lifestyles, unfortunately, provide ample opportunities for accidents and dental trauma to occur. These accidents are difficult to prevent and can potentially maim a person, especially a child, for life. Subsequent tooth loss due to improper initial handling or untimely dental management can result in protracted and expensive dental rehabilitation, not to mention the potential damage to the person’s self-confidence, quality of life and psychological trauma due to tooth loss. An individual’s original tooth is nature’s ideal implants. Being able to successfully replant the original knocked-out tooth saves the patient money. A prosthetic tooth can costs up to a few thousand dollars; and it will still never be comparable to a real tooth. Save-A-Tooth(r) is now in every U.S. Olympic Team’s Training Bag, and the State of Ohio, USA, even requires all licensed childcare centre to protect children against unnecessary tooth loss that occurs after teeth are knocked-out by having the Save-A-Tooth(r) as part of their Emergency Kit. The cost to benefit ratio of being equipped with the Knocked-Out Tooth Emergency First Aid Kit in times of emergency is evident. Accidents can happen at any time, anywhere and to anyone. So do seriously consider keeping the Knocked-Out Tooth Emergency First Aid Kit handy and you may potentially save yourself alot of heartache and inconveniences. You may not be able to prevent accidents but you can definitely help to retain smiles.
