Treating nasal obstruction and congestion, which often solves a snoring problem that is related to upper airway obstruction, includes the following:
Balloon Sinuplasty is a novel, endoscopic, catheter-based technology utilized in sinus surgery that you can discuss with your doctor. This FDA-cleared technology uses a small, flexible, sinus balloon catheter to open up blocked sinus passageways, restoring normal sinus drainage. When the sinus balloon is inflated, it gently restructures and widens the walls of the passageway while maintaining the integrity of the sinus lining. Visit David Volpi M.D.’s sinuplasty website for more information.
Coblation Turbinate Reduction
A new, in-office treatment that is practically painless. It uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to remove the tissue caused by enlarged turbinates (small structures located in the nose) and relieves chronic nasal obstruction. This procedure can be performed at The Manhattan Snoring and Sleep Center under local anesthesia in less than 20 minutes.
Identification and Avoidance of Allergens
Nasal allergies, which are either seasonal or perennial, increase nasal congestion. Numerous treatments are available to provide identification and avoidance of allergens. For example, dust allergies are common, and exposure can be reduced with the use of non-allergenic bedding, removal of carpeting or upholstery, and the use of an air cleaner with a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter.
