Nose and Sinus

If sinus infections are a common occurrence for you, you’re not alone. Sinusitis is one of the most common health complaints in the US. Symptoms include pain in the ear, face, or upper teeth, obstructed or abnormal drainage, or nasal congestion. Care of the nasal cavity and sinuses, including trouble breathing, are the focus for ENT specialists. They can diagnose and develop a treatment plan specific to your symptoms.

Common nose symptoms treated by ENT doctors

Sinus infections, congestion, and airway blockage are common nose-related issues that ENT doctors can diagnose and treat. Reasons for these symptoms can range from allergies to viral or bacterial infections and a deviated septum. Polyps may also cause airway blockage. An ENT physician will discover the source of your symptoms and develop a treatment plan to help you find relief.

The most common symptom is trouble breathing through the nose, and the symptoms are often worse on one side.
