Treatment of Sleep Apnea
Although sleep apnea is a sleep disorder, an area that normally does not concern an ENT specialist, an obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is caused by a blockage in the airway, usually on the throat and/or the nasal passageway. If that is the case, our expert ENT Specialist in Pontiac Michigan, can help resolve this issue through sleep apnea treatment or surgery. This involves removing, trimming or repositioning the tissues that block the airway, resulting to a clearer path for the oxygen to freely move to the trachea and to the lungs. The best ENT Specialist in West Bloomfield has decades of experience in this field, thus rest assured you are in great hands.
Allergy Testing and Immunotherapy
Allergens can trigger mild to severe reaction of the body including allergic rhinitis characterized by runny nose, itchy, watery eyes, nasal congestion and sneezing. Our service begins by a consultation with our resident ENT specialist, who will evaluate your oral history to figure out what triggers your allergic reactions. If the reaction if mild and tolerable, our ENT specialist will prescribe antihistamines or nasal sprays for temporary relief, and advise you to prevent further reactions by avoiding your triggers.
For severe allergic reactions to triggers that are unavoidable such as pollen and other airborne allergens, our ENT specialist might advise an allergy test performed through RAST or skin testing. The allergy test will provide an accurate idea on the cause of the allergic reaction and the magnitude of the reaction, both pieces of information are important when starting the immunotherapy.
Immunotherapy involves your ENT specialist administering allergy shots regularly every week to once or twice a month to help the body form antibodies that will decrease the sensitivity to the allergen through continued therapy. Typically, patients undergo immunotherapy for 3-5 years but the time period will vary based on the patients specific situation.
