Solution To Overcome The Nose Bone Of 14-year-old Children Bent?
I want it, the ankle of my ankle (age 14) is bent and the symptoms are clogged, when it actually hurts. Actually the symptoms are not too severe but he is not confident. What do you think the solution is, can it be straight again?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Septum is the soft bone in the nose that separates the two nostrils. A truly straight septum condition is only slightly found, usually there is minimal bending, and no symptoms are found that are disturbing. Septal deviation is classified as abnormal if the deviation causes a blockage in the nose that interferes with nasal function, causes complications in the surrounding organs, or causes cosmetic complaints due to the appearance of the nose being bent.
Generally septal deviation is caused by direct trauma and can be associated with damage to other parts of the nose such as nasal fractures. In some patients who do not get a history of trauma, it is possible that abnormalities occur in the womb. An abnormal position in the uterus can cause pressure on the nose and upper jaw, so there can be a shift in the septum. Likewise, pressure on the nose at birth can increase trauma to the septum.
Symptoms can be found such as:
- Difficulty breathing
- Repeated nosebleeds
- Nasal congestion
- The nose feels dry
- Paranasal sinus infection
- Sleep disturbance due to air flow obstruction
In cases of severe septal deviation causing decreased quality of life of the sufferer, reconstructive surgery is recommended. Non-operative treatment can be done but its nature is not to correct the condition of the deformity of the septum, but only to reduce existing symptoms.
However, if symptoms do not improve with non-operative treatment, then surgery is still recommended as the main therapy.
Carry out further consultations with ENT specialists so that you can check how severe the septum deviation is and the treatment plan.
That's all, hope you can help
