Restore smiles with EMT ToothSaver™tooth-preserving system

Nearly five million teeth are accidentally knocked out each year. The length of time before a tooth is replanted and how it is transported to the dentist are crucial in successfully saving and replanting the tooth.

Click here to enlarge image

EMT ToothSaver™ protects, nourishes, and revives knocked-out teeth prior to replantation, which must be completed as quickly as possible, preferably within 24 hours. By suspending the avulsed tooth in a pH-balanced cell-culture fluid which is biocompatible with the tooth's PDL cells, EMT ToothSaver safely stores the tooth until replantation. This allows other more serious injuries to be treated first and expands the window of time to treat the patient.

EMT ToothSaver offers dentists an excellent chance to perform the preferred option - saving the patient's natural tooth. In most cases, this treatment will also pave the way for more comprehensive care in the future.

For more information, call SmartPractice®at (800) 522-0800.
