Don’t Spent St. Patrick’s Day at the Dentist!
Friday, March 17, 2017
Whether you are Irish or not, St. Patrick’s Day is filled with green garb, celebrations , and maybe even a little drinking.
But beware the Ideas of March! Believe it or not, emergency dental visits jump by 77% the after St. Patrick’s Day each year.
The main culprit?
Drunken fighting and clumsiness.
Here are a few tips to make sure your luck doesn’t run out:
· Don’t take unnecessary risks, especially if you’ve been drinking. This includes driving, operating machinery, or swimming.
· Have back up. A designated driver is great, but it’s also a good idea to have a level-headed friend around in case things get out of hand.
· Don’t do anything that you’ll regret tomorrow. If you don’t want to find yourself awkwardly on social media the next day, you may want to reconsider some of your actions.
· Keep up with preventative care. If you haven’t been to the dentist in awhile, your teeth are more susceptible to injury.
If your search for a pot of gold does result in a dental injury, give us a call. We offer emergency services and can help identify if your condition can wait until you’ve sobered up.
Stay safe and shamrock on!
