Turbinate Reduction is one of the most simple sleep apnea services available, because it is performed in the office in just a few minutes, using only local anesthesia, and allows people to immediately resume normal activities. This quick, painless office-based procedure can provide years of effective relief from nasal congestion, pressure, and drainage.
Turbinate Reduction offers immediate and dramatic results in the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea as well as offer significant relief from chronic nasal allergies.
What Is Turbinate Reduction?
The turbinates are found inside the nose. Swollen turbinates can cause pressure, congestion and difficulty breathing. Turbinate Reduction shrinks the turbinates providing years of relief from nasal allergy symptoms.
Benefits Of Turbinate Reduction
Oversized or chronically swollen turbinates can obstruct breathing and increase nasal congestion. Turbinate Reduction can help:
- Treat severe or chronic nasal allergies
- Relieve nasal congestion & drainage
- Reduce sinus-related snoring
- Improve breathing
How Does It Work?
After numbing the nose, a reduction wand is inserted into the turbinate. The wand emits radio frequency energy which shrinks the turbinates. This relieves nasal obstruction and improves nasal breathing.
