Sleep apnea is a kind of serious sleep disorder known as a brief pause in breathing. It is a temporary suspension or absence of breathing, where the breathing of the patient repeatedly stops and starts. If you normally snore aloud when you sleep and feel tired when you wake even if you had a full night rest, you might have sleep apnea.
The most common signs and symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, gasping for air during sleep, awakening with a dry mouth, excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia), irritability, difficulty in staying asleep (insomnia), difficulty paying attention while awake, morning headache, etc.
Do you struggle with loud snoring or interrupted sleep? Or you experience any other sign or symptom of sleep apnea. Find out how Sugar Land Dental SPA can help you. Give us a call today to schedule a consultation.

Laser dentistry is the use of concentrated laser energy to treat a wide spectrum of oral problems. Dentists use laser dentistry to treat:
Tooth decay: Laser dentistry is used to remove any tooth decay as well as to prepare the surrounding enamel of the tooth before dental filling.
Gum disease: Laser dentistry can be used to reshape the gum and to remove bacteria when carrying out root canal therapy.
Biopsy or lesion removal: For cancer examination, laser dentistry can be used to extract a small piece of tissue, called biopsy. More so, it can be used to relieve pain from canker sores and to extract lesions in the mouth and relieve the pain of canker sores.
Teeth whitening: Laser dentistry can be used to speed up on-site teeth whitening treatment. The peroxide solution, which is applied to the surface of the tooth, is ”activated” by the laser.

Sedation dentistry involves the use of medication to help patients to relax in the course of dental treatment. Some people refer to Sedation dentistry as sleep dentistry, though that is not completely right as patients ‘may’ not sleep but stay unconscious during the dental procedures. Patients under general anesthesia may sleep off. Sedation dentistry comes in various levels, such as:
Minimal sedation: the patient stays awake but in a relaxed state.
Moderate sedation: this is initially known as ‘conscious sedation.’ In this case, the patient slurs words when speaking and would not remember much about how the treatment was carried out.
Deep sedation: this is a little deeper, the patient is only slight conscious but may still be awake.
General anesthesia: in this case, the patient is completely unconscious and may be in a sleeping state.

Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer screening involves the visual and physical examination of the dental cavity and dental tissues. Oral cancer screening can be used to reassure patients that there are no more apparent problems, and if there are problems, it can be used to trigger early treatment. Your dentist may prescribe an oral cancer screening, or you may request for it just as a preventive measure. The National Cancer Institute recommends that a patient should not wait to see symptoms before they undergo oral cancer screening. Therefore, contact us today for your dental cancer screening
At Sugar Land Dental SPA, we have the necessary tools for oral cancer screening, such as light, mirror, tongue depressor and other standard and specialized examining tools.

Dental Cleaning and Prevention
Despite the daily brushing and flossing of your teeth, there is a possibility that tartar and plaque may still develop on the teeth and this would lead to discoloration, cavities, decay, bacterial infections, or any other problems.
This is the main reason why you should consult a dentist for dental cleaning and protection at least twice a year – every six months. Here at A Beautiful Smile At Lake Pointe, our dentists will use professional tools to carefully remove any tartar and plaque that might have developed on your dental enamel.

Even with daily brushing and flossing, your toothbrush would not always get to every nook and cranny of your mouth, most especially, the back of your mouth. This is why using dental sealants is an easy and effective way of increasing your dental protection against cavities and bacteria. Dental sealants, thin, flexible plastic materials, help to prevent these bacteria and cavities by acting as a barrier for your teeth against bacterial infections, food particles, tarter, and plaque, etc.
Though you may not see or feel your new dental sealants, your teeth will be safer and cleaner with better dental examination results.

Our dentists can even train you on effective oral hygiene techniques that you can pass onto your kids.
More so, we offer other dental treatments that can help to protect your kids’ dental health as their teeth grow. Some of these include dental sealants to protect their molar and premolar against decay, and fluoride supplements to strengthen their tooth enamel as well as to protect their teeth from the cavity.
