St. Patrick’s Day Dental Emergencies

men cheers on st paddys dayWith St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, Herald Square Dental wanted to remind you to stay safe and drink responsibly! Did you know that emergency dental visits dramatically increase after St. Patrick’s Day? Typically, this is due to the heavy alcohol consumption associated with the holiday, as people are more likely to fall, injure themselves or get in a bar fight while intoxicated. We recommend taking it easy on the Guinness this year, as to avoid such accidents! You can still have fun and keep your teeth intact while drinking safely.

A study conducted by Sikka Software found that dental related emergencies increase as much as 64% in the United States. Specifically, in New York, the increase of emergencies goes up by over 50%.

One of the most common dental injuries after a holiday such as St. Paddy’s is a missing tooth. Herald Square Dental offers procedures such as dental implants, dentures, and dental bridges. (link to pages), which can replace said missing teeth!

We hope you have a safe St. Patrick’s Day, but if the luck of the Irish is not with you and you need to make an emergency dental appointment, please give Herald Square Dental a call!
