Nasal and Sinus Congestion

Do you have nasal or sinus congestion? We can treat you for your congestion or find out if more serious sinus problems are at fault.

Nasal and sinus congestion refers to the condition where the nasal passages and sinuses become swollen, inflamed, or blocked, leading to difficulty in breathing through the nose. It is a common symptom associated with various underlying causes, such as:

  1. Respiratory Infections: Colds, flu, and other viral or bacterial infections can cause congestion as the body’s immune response leads to inflammation of the nasal and sinus tissues.

  2. Allergies: Allergic reactions to pollen, dust mites, pet dander, or other allergens can trigger nasal and sinus congestion due to inflammation and increased mucus production.

  3. Sinusitis: Sinusitis is an inflammation or infection of the sinuses, often resulting in congestion, facial pain, and pressure.

  4. Environmental Irritants: Exposure to irritants like smoke, pollutants, or strong odors can lead to temporary nasal congestion.

  5. Deviated Septum: A deviated nasal septum, a structural issue in the nose, can obstruct airflow and cause chronic congestion.

  6. Nasal Polyps: Noncancerous growths in the nasal passages can block airflow and lead to persistent congestion.

  7. Weather Changes: Cold or dry air, as well as changes in temperature and humidity, can trigger nasal and sinus congestion in some individuals.

Nasal and sinus congestion can cause discomfort, difficulty breathing, and affect one’s sense of smell and taste. Treatment options may include decongestants, antihistamines, nasal corticosteroid sprays, saline rinses, or addressing the underlying cause with the help of a healthcare professional.

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.
