Nasal Obstruction

Relief from Nasal Obstruction: Our Specialized Care for Clear Breathing!

Nasal obstruction refers to a condition where there is partial or complete blockage or obstruction of the nasal passages, making it difficult for air to flow freely through the nose. This can result in various symptoms and discomfort, including:

  1. Difficulty Breathing: The primary symptom of nasal obstruction is difficulty breathing through the nose. Individuals may find it challenging to inhale and exhale comfortably through their nasal passages.

  2. Congestion: Nasal congestion often accompanies nasal obstruction. This is a feeling of fullness or stuffiness in the nose due to the blocked airflow.

  3. Snoring: Nasal obstruction can contribute to snoring, as individuals may resort to mouth breathing during sleep when their nasal passages are obstructed.

  4. Sleep Disturbances: Because of snoring and disrupted breathing patterns during sleep, nasal obstruction can lead to poor sleep quality and daytime fatigue.

  5. Reduced Sense of Smell: In some cases, nasal obstruction can affect the sense of smell, as airflow carrying odors may be hindered.

Nasal obstruction can have various underlying causes, including allergies, nasal polyps, a deviated nasal septum, sinus infections, or structural abnormalities in the nose. The treatment for nasal obstruction depends on the specific cause and may include medications, nasal corticosteroid sprays, decongestants, nasal saline rinses, or surgical interventions if necessary. Individuals experiencing chronic nasal obstruction should consult with a healthcare professional for a proper evaluation and appropriate treatment options.

Discovery and Treatment Process:

Initial Consultation

Your journey begins with a comprehensive evaluation by one of our experienced ENT providers. During this visit, we’ll discuss your sinus issues and symptoms in detail to understand your specific needs.

Diagnostic CT Scan
Following the consultation, we conduct an in-office CT scan. This advanced imaging technology allows us to accurately assess your sinus anatomy and identify any underlying structural issues contributing to your sinus problems.

Personalized Treatment Plan
After reviewing your CT scan results, your doctor will sit down with you to discuss the findings. We believe in a collaborative approach, where your doctor will recommend the best course of action and discuss all available treatment options with you.

In-Office Procedures
If a procedure is indicated, we’ll schedule it right here in our office. Our in-office procedures are minimally invasive, meaning you can often return home within just an hour or two. Unlike traditional surgeries, these procedures don’t require general anesthesia, making them a convenient and less disruptive option for sinus relief.

Quick Recovery and Improved Quality of Life 
After your procedure, you should experience a significant improvement in your quality of life within 1-3 weeks. Our goal is to help you breath easier and live better without the prolonged recovery time associated with traditional sinus surgeries.
