Many New Jersey people blame their sinus problems and snoring on a deviated septum. But how can you be really sure that it is really the cause? Will having a surgery and correcting a deviated septum make you feel any better and get a better night’s sleep?
Deviated septum is common in adults, and it may worsen over time as the nose droops with age. But whether it needs to be treated depends on the symptoms.
Dr. Monica Tadros, M.D., NJ Double Board certified plastic surgeon and Asst. Professor of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery at the Columbia University, highlights some of the signs of a deviated septum. Dr. Tadros has successfully treated many patients with deviated septum at her office location near 300 Grand Ave, Englewood, NJ 07631.

Signs that may suggest you have a deviated septum
Here are some of the signs of a deviated septum that many NJ patients report when visiting Dr. Tadros’ office.
- Trouble breathing through your nose, usually more so on one side. You may often feel like you have a cold, with a stuffy nose.
- Recurrent bacterial infections of the nose and sinuses.
- Snoring. If you have a nasal obstruction, you are more likely to breathe through your mouth when you sleep, which causes the palate to vibrate. A deviated septum can also contribute to obstructive sleep apnea.
- Frequent or chronic postnasal drip, nasal crusting, nosebleeds, headaches, dry mouth, and sore throats.
Consultation for a Deviated Septum
An experienced ear, nose, and throat (ENT) NJ doctor can diagnose and offer a deviated septum treatment. For a more detailed exam, an endoscope may be used to look at the back of the nose and sinuses.
