Treating Deviated Septum, Enlarged Turbinates, Nasal Polyps, and Sinus Infection
If your ENT doctor has determined that your snoring is caused by anatomical nasal obstruction such as a deviated septum or enlarged turbinates, or non-anatomical nasal polyps or sinus disease, he or she can then treat the condition through either surgical or non-surgical procedures. Below are common treatments for nasal obstruction:
Deviated Septum (anatomical)
If a deviated septum is blocking air in either nostril, surgical repositioning can provide a correction.
Enlarged Turbinates (anatomical)
Medical treatment for enlarged turbinates includes antihistamines, decongestants as well as topical and systemic corticosteroids. Surgery may be indicated if a patient fails to respond to these medical treatments.
Nasal Polyps (non-anatomical)
Nasal polyps are treated surgically by removing them. Removal will improve breathing, however some polyps may grow back.
Sinus Disease or Sinusitis (non-anatomical)
Medical treatment includes antihistamines, decongestants as well as topical and systemic corticosteroids.
