The treatment for a temporary loss of taste and smell will depend on the cause. Our experts at Texas ENT Specialists treat patients who have a lost sense of taste and smell due to chronic sinus infections, allergies, and nasal polyps. Contact us for more information on these treatment options.
For those with sinus infections, our offices offer balloon sinuplasty to help open the sinuses and flush out any drainage. This in-office procedure is performed by inserting a tiny balloon in the nasal passageway and inflating the balloon until the passageway opens.
For allergy patients, we offer Asensa™ allergy drops and allergy shots. The Asensa drops can be custom-formulated to your specific allergies and are taken at home by placing them under the tongue. Allergy shots involve regular injections of the allergen to increase your tolerance to it.
For those with regular nasal polyps, we offer a surgical procedure to help remove them and limit their chance of returning. This surgery can also help those with chronic sinusitis.
