Emergency Dentistry

Because not everything goes according to plan it is likely that, at some point in your life, you or someone you love will have a need for emergency dental care.

At Distinctive Dental, we’ve got you covered!

If you have a damaged or painful tooth, or other emergency involving the oral cavity, Dr. Yelle and the Distinctive Dental (formerly David J. Jones DDS) team provides dental services in emergencies for Monument and its surrounding communities of Gleneagle, Woodmoor and north El Paso county, and even Colorado Springs.

We can help you on an emergency basis for any of these situations:

Emergencies - Evulsed Teeth

When a tooth is knocked out of the socket, it can be saved with proper first aid and a quick trip to the dentist. Should you encounter a tooth that has been “knocked out”, gently rinse it in tap water. Do not touch or scrub the root surface as you may damage the root. Insert the tooth back into the socket and hold it in place. If the tooth is replanted in the socket within 30 minutes, it has an excellent chance of surviving and the sooner it is replanted, the better. Don’t worry if the tooth is not perfectly centered. Call us here at Distinctive Dental, and you will be seen immediately to secure the tooth properly.

Broken/Chipped Tooth

If you have sustained serious tooth damage, time is of the essence! Dr. Yelle’s Monument Dentist dental team always prioritizes preserving your precious natural tooth structure whenever possible. We present all relevant options to help restore and maintain your natural and healthy smile.

Sports Emergencies

Many of the most common oral injuries involve sporting events. If your family should need immediate dental treatment for a sports-related injury, contact Dr. Yelle, one of Monument’s trusted dentists, to save or restore your teeth. Our team will also educate you on options to protect your teeth during sports activities to prevent future damage and discomfort.

Extractions and Root Canal Therapy

While we will explore other options, if you have a painful tooth that’s causing you distress, an emergency extraction may be necessary to provide the relief you seek. In some cases, advanced methods of root canal treatment can make your pain disappear while also saving your tooth. Our practice also offers anesthesia known better as ‘laughing gas’, so you’ll feel comfortable and relaxed during your dental procedure.

Same Day Dentistry

If you’ve experienced some kind of dental issue which, while it may not require immediate treatment, should be addressed as soon as possible, call Dr. Yelle’s dental practice to schedule a same-day visit. You won’t be kept waiting for hours, and will receive the treatment you need as quickly as possible.

Whatever your dental emergency might be, call Dr. Yelle and Distintive Dental for service at any time of day. Our team is ready to do whatever is necessary to restore your good oral health and ensure you’re ‘back in the game’ as soon as possible.
