One of the main problems with the sinuses is the potential for sinus infection, which can cause congestion in the nose, headaches, blocked ears, cough, post-nasal drip and a feeling of pressure.
Nasal growths can also occur. These are swellings of the inside passages. They can eventually lead to problems with smell and even breathing difficulties. Signs can be similar to that of sinus infection, but can also include facial pain, affected smell or taste, and sleep problems, such as sleep apnea.
There’s lots we can do to help. First and foremost, we can carry out sinus surgery. Although it sounds invasive, it’s actually a minimally-invasive procedure which can help target growths (like polyps) and open up the pathways to help with breathing and airflow. Sinus surgery is ideal for those with repeat sinus infections.
It’s a way to help clear any blockages in these cavities to help open up the sinuses. It’s usually recommended for those with frequent sinus infections, or who have an unusual structure to their sinuses. People with growths in the sinuses may also benefit. Treatment is usually straight-forward and may involve removing tiny pieces of bone, tissue, membranes or even growths.
There are lots of solutions for snoring, both at-home and in our practice.
Surgically, anti-snoring treatment can involve operating on the throat region, to adjust the tissues in the area and see if this makes an improvement to the airways. Alternatively, surgery could help stiffen your palate (which is sometimes behind the vibration that causes the snoring sound).
