A sudden or gradual loss of the sense of taste or smell can be disorienting. While the loss is often temporary, it’s usually caused by an underlying condition such as nasal polyps, sinus infections, or allergies.
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.
It’s possible to lose your sense of smell or taste due to allergies. SFENTA offers several types of allergy treatments including allergy drops, allergy shots, and biologic therapy. These treatments can improve allergy symptoms and help patients create a tolerance to the allergen to stop future reactions.
Sinus Infection Treatment
If the cause of your lost taste or smell is a sinus infection, we offer a balloon sinuplasty treatment to help you open the sinus cavities and find relief. A tiny medical “balloon” is inserted into the nasal passageway and inflated until the provider feels the passageways are open enough to begin draining normally.
Nasal Polyp Treatment
Nasal polyps can interfere with one’s sense of smell. Surgery may be required to remove these blockages. The same surgery can also help those with chronic sinusitis and limit nasal polyps from returning.
