Exploring What Dental Emergency is and its Associated Matters



9 out of 10 dentists agree that it’s essential to know the difference between dental concerns requiring standard preventative care and urgent attention issues.

Dealing with a dental issue is never pleasant. Many people do different things to prevent them since they are usually quite painful. But the one thing that makes these situations even worse is when it comes at the most inconvenient or worst possible time ever. What’s more, finding an emergency dentist isn’t always a simple task, and that’s because there’s only so much you can take before calling one in during the most urgent hours of the need. Luckily, there are real signs of a situation that can potentially become too difficult or turn into something deeply problematic, hinting at the requirement for immediate medical intervention. So, let’s understand what they are and what you can do to handle them.

Types of dental emergency

If you have a problem that can wait a couple of days to improve, it is not an emergency. You can quickly deal with the issue after you have rested and taken some time off not to let things get too overwhelming or too stressful for you personally. For example, if you have a chipped tooth but it isn’t painful, you don’t need to worry about finding a dentist right away. Suppose your tooth is aching so much that it’s affecting your everyday life or small flint-like particles have got stuck in your gum tissue or jawbone, causing swelling around your face due to the pressure. In that case, you may want to meet your dentist immediately.

More precisely, any severe pain associated with cases of swollen gums and accompanied by intense nausea, dizziness, sweating, and a sense of not feeling well warrants dental assistance immediately. Do you live in Huntington? You would want to look for a dental care provider in Huntington, NY, specializing in emergency dental care services in that case. Usually, general dental practitioners offer these services. So you need to contact them when faced with any of the following conditions or situations.

Unbearable toothache

Unpredictable toothaches pop up and can ruin your day. It is a sign that your body tells you something is wrong in your mouth. When you experience a sudden and unexpected toothache, it’s best to see an emergency dentist immediately, and if you can’t, use some over-the-counter medicine to help alleviate it. Applying cool compresses or rinsing your mouth with salt water can also be helpful until you get to the dentist.

Inflamed and bleeding gums

Flossing is an essential part of a daily oral hygiene routine. While this practice can aid in ridding bacteria from the mouth, flossing doesn’t necessarily mean that your gums will automatically be healthy. It’s common for people to experience irritation or inflammation of their gums even after regular cleanings. If you encounter bleeding or irritated gums and experience any pain that coincides with these symptoms, you must see your dentist. They can determine what may be causing them; otherwise, some underlying health problems might go unresolved for too long.

Exposed nerves

Numb, sensitive teeth can be a symptom of an inflamed nerve. It’s important to seek emergency dental assistance to prevent the issue from worsening and causing more severe consequences down the line.

Broken tooth

Have you seen someone getting their tooth knocked out suddenly while playing or falling? It causes tremendous pain. However, you can get them reinserted quickly and help preserve the tooth if you access emergency services for dental care. One has to carefully hold the tooth by its top part, ensuring they don’t touch its root. They also need to clean it without scrubbing and store the same in a small milk container to take it to the dentist, who can fix it.

Damaged crown

Many doctors don’t recommend root canals unless necessary because they can affect bone density over time. If your dental crown breaks or falls off, you risk infection and damage to your tooth. By scheduling an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible for emergency dental care, you can get your problem fixed and avoid the need for procedures like a root canal, tooth extraction, or others that cost both time and money.

Loose or missing filling

Losing a filling can be a dental emergency, especially if you miss more than one. Without this vital part, your tooth could easily chip or break. The tooth nerve can get exposed, leading to other issues like decay.

Swollen jaws

It’s time for an emergency dentist visit if you have sudden swelling in your mouth or jaws. It’s wise to measure the different dental aspects before choosing a dentist. For example, insurance coverage can be one. Having sufficient insurance coverage and dental service provider selection becomes critical in these situations. Also, your dentist should be able to pinpoint the concerns that need special attention first before any other considerations come into play.

Stubborn food deposits between teeth

One of the most frustrating things is going to bed at night with a piece of food stuck in one’s teeth and not being able to do anything about it. If you land in such a predicament, you should schedule an appointment with your dentist right away. The longer the food stays in place, the more likely the teeth will shift, and gum irritation or tooth decay may form. And infections are always possible since they can easily transmit by sticking even a finger into the mouth or having someone else try to remove the particle. This practice might make an infection even worse; that is why it is necessary getting foreign objects removed from your teeth by a professional only.

These are some of the common dental emergency scenarios where you would want to reach out to your dentist immediately. While you cannot do much about sudden occurrences, specifically chips and cracks in teeth caused by injuries, regular dental cleaning and hygiene efforts can safeguard you from unpleasant experiences. At the same time, it is always better to keep your contact handy to save your time during those critical hours.

Spring Petals and Hairy Crab: Kintsugi Aligns with a Golden Touch



Tucked away in a slate-colored corner of otherwise colorful SoHo, Kintsugi stands in contained eloquence as a testament to the exquisite fusion of traditional Japanese cuisine and modern culinary artistry. Named after the ancient Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold, Kintsugi embraces imperfections, celebrating the beauty of resilience and transformation in post-pandemic NYC.

At Kintsugi, guests are treated to an omakase experience unlike any other, where every dish tells a story of meticulous craftsmanship and innovative flavor pairings. The menu, curated by Executive Chef Victor Chen (formerly of New York Sushi Ko), offers three tiers of premium omakase, each highlighting seasonal ingredients and Chef Victor’s imaginative creations.

The dining experience began with the house signature cocktail, made with sake, yuzu, and violet syrup—a whimsical nod to the restaurant’s otherwise classic Japanese ambiance. The upbeat jazz music playing in the background added a lively contrast to Chef Victor’s quiet focus, creating a dynamic and engaging atmosphere.

The exciting spring menu babied us with glow-in-the-dark Firefly Squid as well as eels so delicate one would think they’re about to enjoy a bowl of glass noodles. A hairy crab peered at us over one course, sheltering a tangy salad made from its tender meat. Such creatures are common fare on the spring tides of the large Japanese coastline, chef informed us. An array of seasonal sea urchin species always brings a knowledgable crowd to Kintsugi, so book early for that summer treat.

While the atmosphere became increasingly lively as the evening unfolded and the guests got to know each other and the staff, the omakase culture at Kintsugi is one of careful curation and attention to detail. Guests can expect to pay a deposit and be patient, as Chef Victor and his team are focused and diligent in providing a truly exceptional dining experience. From bespoke sushi tailored to individual tastes to over 40 pieces of expertly crafted nigiri, every dish at Kintsugi is a work of art.

As you embark on your culinary journey at Kintsugi, be prepared to be transported to a world where every bite tells a story of tradition, innovation, and the beauty of impermanence. The latter of which is precisely what Chef Victor loves about sushi. “All of that work and it all goes into one bite” he says quietly as he gently sears a fat slice of sable fish. “Perhaps it is chewed a few more times, rolled around and savored for that moment and then its forever gone.”

In artful consideration of framing, each course is presented on dinner ware in collaboration with EM Ceramics and Spark Bird Studio who created an exclusive line of handcrafted, gold-fused dinner ware for Kintsugi. Experience for yourself the zen magic of this divine space and discover why, as host Klaus puts it, “everyone needs some Kintsugi after Covid.”

Kintsugi recently launched The Lunch Rush Omakase, a 12- course one- hour experience for $60. It is served on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from12–3 p.m. Also available is an optional seasonal beverage pairing (3) for $35 per person.

Kintsugi Omakase

Hours of operation:
Lunch: Friday, Saturday and Sunday 12–3 p.m. Dinner: Monday-Sunday 5–11 p.m.
