Ear, nose and throat problems

Ear, nose and throat problems are very common among all age groups. Based on a quick and accurate diagnosis, a specialised doctor can provide treatment to help alleviate the discomfort these problems cause.

Recurrent upper respiratory tract infections in children are common in many families. Especially when the ear, nose or throat problems are recurrent and prolonged, an ear specialist can fix the situation and enable the family to continue their normal life.

At Oral Hammaslääkärit Qmedical Pikku Huopalahti, our specialists utilise the newest technology and methods in diagnosing and treating problems of the upper respiratory tract. In case of facial injuries and dental problems related to sinusitis, we provide immediate consultation with a maxillofacial surgeon and a specialised dentist. This unique opportunity saves time. When planning treatments, we especially focus on informing the patients and listening to their opinions.

Otitis

Viral upper respiratory tract infection (or common cold) can lead to bacterial otitis media (or ear infection), especially in children. If the symptoms are severe, small children are often prescribed antibiotics as well. This speeds up the recovery from the bacterial infection.

Tonsillectomy

Tonsillectomy is used to treat recurrent acute tonsillitis (i.e. angina), chronic tonsillitis and large tonsils. Enlarged tonsils can obstruct the airway which can cause congestion and snoring.

Sinusitis

Sinusitis, or sinus infection, is often the result of a viral respiratory tract infection. The majority of mild cases of sinusitis heal without medication. In severe cases, antibiotics and nasal cortisone sprays are used for treatment. Sinus irrigation is also performed, if necessary.

Sleep apnea and its treatment

Do you always wake up tired? If you feel tired even after sleeping, you may be suffering from sleep apnea which causes pauses in breathing during sleep. Sleep apnea is easy to diagnose with a polysomnography machine that measures breathing and other body functions during sleep. When sleep apnea is diagnosed, it can be treated by weight loss, a mouth guard or with a CPAP machine that enhances breathing during sleep.

Nasal septum deviation

The nasal airways are separated by a nasal septum which is composed of cartilage at the front and bone at the back. An impact can cause fractures in the septum which may lead to a deviation. If the deviation is mild, it might not cause any problems. However, extensive deviation may cause congestion in the other half of the nose which cannot be alleviated through medication. It can also make snoring worse. Nasal septum deviation can only be fixed through nasal surgery.
