Are you experiencing “sinus problems” such as facial pain and pressure or difficulty breathing through your nose? You may be suffering from a condition known as sinusitis.
California Sleep Institute now offers a new way of treating sinusitis that may be right for you. This procedure uses a device called the SinuSys Vent-Os™ Sinus Dilation System.
What is sinusitis?
As you probably know, sinuses are air filled pockets located around the area of the nose. Each sinus has an opening that allows it to drain to keep your sinuses working well and you healthy.
Sinusitis is a condition in which the sinuses become inflamed and swollen possibly due to a cold or allergies. When this happens, it is difficult for the sinuses to drain and mucus builds up, blocking your sinus passages. As a result, people with sinusitis experience a range of symptoms.
- Thick yellow or greenish discharge from the nose or down the back of the throat
- Difficulty breathing through the nose
- Pain and swelling and pressure around the eyes, cheeks, nose or forehead
- Reduced sense of smell and taste
- Cough, Headache, Earache
- Aching in the upper jaw and teeth
- Bad breath
The Vent-Os Dilation System Helps Open Blocked
The Vent-Os System offers a quick and comfortable way to open blocked sinus passages and help them drain. For most patients, the procedure can be done in the office, with local anesthesia. The procedure takes about an hour, and when it’s over, you may return immediately to your normal daily activities.
