Anyone who has ever suffered from a toothache knows how quickly mouth pain throws your routine into disarray. Toothaches can come on suddenly and be so severe that they disrupt your ability to function. In Las Vegas, renowned dentist Dr. Doug Sandquist frequently helps patients address and treat their toothache issues with short and long-term plans for optimal outcomes.
Smoking presents a significant risk factor for numerous systemic diseases, including heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer. However, the impact of tobacco on oral health is equally severe, yet not as widely acknowledged. The mouth serves as the first contact for cigarette smoke, and the effects can be detrimental to oral tissues and overall dental health. At Sandquist Dentistry in Las Vegas, we're concerned about the complex relationship between smoking and oral health. Here are a few oral diseases linked to smoking and how tobacco affects the teeth, gums, and other areas of the mouth.

Teeth live in a tough environment and over time can start to wear out.. they can yellow over time and get stress fractures and thin wear areas.. this is a great example how porcelain veneers can be used to rejuvenate a smile.

A combination of Invisalign and new porcelain crowns on the upper front teeth allowed us to restore Dave back to function and a great new smile!

Lou suffered from severe erosion of his enamel, which caused his teeth to be sensitive to eating normal foods and also meant his teeth weren’t as protected as they once were. Aesthetic ceramic restorations allowed us to give Lou a new smile and teeth that are comfortable to use!

Derek lived on the streets of Las Vegas for about 6 years, hooked on Heroin and Crystal Meth… he tells me his Mom would call the local jails and often thats the only way she knew if he was still alive.

I’m excited to see what he’s now able to achieve and to be a small part in helping him get back on his feet.
