SHELBY TOWNSHIP, MI, July 27, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dental emergencies can occur at any time. Most of the time it's when a person least expects it. In fact, if a person plays sports, he or she might be one of the 5 million people who've had a tooth dislodged. Sports-related dental injuries have resulted in patients spending about $500 million each year to replace teeth. Patients who have ever experienced a dental emergency, whether sports-related or not, should turn to emergency dental treatment in Shelby Township at Sood Family Dental.

While many sports require protective gear to keep an athlete safe while out on the field, many players don't comply. In fact, only about 7 percent of soccer players actually wear mouth guards. This same statistic holds true for baseball and softball players. Even football, with its rough tackles and ground pounding, only has 75% of athletes in compliance with wearing proper protective equipment. This means that most athletes are prone to dental injuries and when they occur, they must be treated immediately.

"We always recommend wearing the proper gear and equipment when playing a sport; however, we can't be there to monitor and make sure our patients are doing this. Of course, all dental emergencies aren't sports-related, but sports injuries are easy to prevent," says Dr. Shikha Sood, a Shelby Township dentist.

Whether a patient cracked their tooth on a crunchy snack or you bite through your tongue, Sood Family Dental knows how to treat your condition. "We've seen our fair share of dental emergencies, so we are able to act fast and provide treatment as soon as possible; however, we always tell our patients that the sooner they call us or come into the office the more effective the treatment will be. Time is of the essence when it comes to dental emergencies," says Dr. Sood.

First, staying calm and collected is essential, as it will help patients act quickly and effectively during the emergency. Some common emergencies include tooth pain, swelling of the gums, mouth or face, and loose wires and brackets if you wear braces.

"We've seen a lot of loose wires in patients who wear braces. It's pretty common for something like this to happen over the course of treatment. We tell patients not to touch the wire and not to connect any of the elastic bands to it. The best thing they can do is call our office and we'll set them up with an appointment right away to fix the problem," says Dr. Sood.

Patients who are experiencing a dental emergency should call a Shelby Township dentist at Sood Family Dental at (586) 207-1471. For more information, visit their website at http://www.soodfamilydental.com/.
