Nasal Obstruction

Many people experience trouble breathing at some point in their lives. A common breathing condition is Nasal Airway Obstruction, which is a limitation of airflow through the nose. Nasal Airway Obstruction (NAO) may cause a person to have trouble breathing during certain activities and can even cause difficulty with sleeping.

What is Nasal Airway Obstruction?

It’s estimated that over 20 million Americans struggle with nasal airway obstruction, which hinders the flow of air through the nose. Those who have nasal airway obstruction may experience difficulty breathing, a decline in sleep quality, and decreased productivity.

How does LATERA™ work?

When some people breath through their nose, the lateral wall of their nose can collapse inwards, creating obstructed breathing. LATERA™ Absorbable Nasal Implants can help decrease nasal airway obstruction to remedy patient’s difficulty breathing. LATERA™ is used to fortify nasal walls by aiding upper and lower cartilage.  Contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment to learn more about this exciting solution if you are experiencing nasal airway obstruction.

What is the LATERA™ experience like?

At the start of the procedure, a tiny cannula is carefully inserted into the nose. When the cannula tip has reached the designated distance, the LATERA™ absorbable implant is injected as the cannula exits the nostril. LATERA™ is naturally absorbed over approximately 18 months following the procedure and provides continuous support from nasal collapse, helping you breathe better and improving your daily life.

LATERA™ can:

  • Decrease stuffiness and nasal congestion
  • Improve difficulty breathing through the nose
  • Enhance breathing through the nostrils when engaging in physical activity or exercise
  • Minimize nasal obstruction
  • Promote better sleep with clearer nasal passages

Don’t let congested nostrils keep you from sleeping and living well. If you find yourself struggling with the effects of Nasal Airway Obstruction, contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment and find out if LATERA™ may be right for you. LATERA™ could be your breath of fresh air!
