While recently a loss of taste and smell has been associated with Covid-19, there can be other underlying causes for this change in sensory perception. Common ailments include sinusitis, allergies, and nasal polyps.
The first step in finding a treatment for a loss of taste or smell is determining the cause. SFENTA’s highly trained providers are experts in ENT care, with years of experience in treating these types of conditions, including sinus infections, allergies, and nasal polyps. They can evaluate your symptoms and make treatment recommendations. If you’re interested in learning more about your treatment options, we encourage you to contact us.
We can perform allergy testing and provide allergy drops and shots customized to your unique needs. This can help you develop a tolerance to your particular environmental allergens.
Sinus Infection Treatment
Balloon sinuplasty can be performed by our experienced ENT practitioners to help drain the sinuses and prevent congestion. A tiny balloon is inserted into the nasal channel and inflated, creating more room for the air to pass through.
Nasal Polyp Treatment
We can surgically remove polyps that are blocking your sense of smell and taste and keep them from coming back at a later date. Chronic sinusitis can also be treated through strategic polyp removal.
