Ocean Otolaryngology Associates offers the VivAer® procedure for individuals suffering from nasal obstructions.
WALL TOWNSHIP/TOMS RIVER, NJ – Do you have difficulty breathing through your nose or suffer from habitual snoring, interrupted sleep and/or fatigue? You might have a nasal obstruction. This ailment is often caused by anatomical blockage in the nose, hindering airflow. As a result, you may feel congested or “stuffy”. Home remedies and medications may offer temporary relief. It’s only when your nasal airway is opened that you can expect to find real, lasting relief. That’s where VivAer® comes in.
“If you regularly experience difficulty breathing through your nose and nothing seems to help, you may have a nasal obstruction,” said Dr. Bruce W. Peters of Ocean ENT. “Until recently, finding a long-term solution often meant surgery. Now, your physician might be able to offer you lasting relief without surgery by performing the VivAer® procedure to open your nasal airway.”
Approximately 97 percent of patients experienced significant improvement in nasal breathing after the VivAer® procedure, according to Dr. Peters. “It is a non-invasive solution with minimal discomfort, no incisions and can be performed right in our office.”
To find out if you are a candidate for the VivAer® procedure, a simple test called the Cottle’s maneuver can help. Simply place two fingertips on your cheeks on either side of your nose and gently press and pull outward to further open your nasal passage. While holding, breathe through your nose to see if the Cottle’s maneuver helped you breathe better. If it did, you might be a candidate for the VivAer® procedure.
