What Causes Enlarged Nasal Turbinates?

About the Condition

Nasal turbinates are like thermostats on the wall of your nasal cavity. These bony structures clean and warm the air you breathe, expanding and contracting with changes in temperature. Allergies or sinus infections can cause nasal turbinates to become inflamed and swollen to the point that they block airflow through the nasal passage. Unfortunately, enlarged nasal turbinates can create a vicious cycle of symptoms. Sinusitis causes them to swell, and swelling leads to more infections. Difficulty breathing can alternate from one side to the other and facial pressure can lead to headaches.

Mild cases can be treated with medication. If swelling does not respond to medication, minor surgical procedures may be recommended to shrink the turbinates.


Advantages & Outcomes

  • Explore innovative treatment options that deliver relief without major surgery or lengthy recovery periods. 
  • Restore airflow to improve symptoms like difficulty breathing, snoring, trouble sleeping, and nosebleeds.
  • Reduce your dependency on medications, such as nasal sprays and oral decongestant tablets that can have side effects such as drowsiness, hypertension, and rebound congestion.
  • Treat the source of the problem without destroying the nose’s natural ability to clean and humidify the air.



Get The Relief You Deserve

A minor procedure could be all that stands between you and lasting freedom from the never-ending cycle of nasal symptoms. Finally, breathe without difficulty and live a happier life without the fog and fatigue caused by nasal congestion.
