While you may turn to your regular physician for a stuffy nose or earache it’s also important to know when you may want to turn to an ENT specialist for care. After all, our ENT team here at Alaska Sinus Center specializes in treating a wide range of conditions and symptoms that affect the ear, nose, throat, sinuses, mouth and neck. Wondering if you should turn to an ENT doctor for care? Here’s when you may want to turn to us for care,
You notice hearing loss
As we get older, many of us will notice some hearing loss. Of course, this isn’t something that should be overlooked. If you or a loved one is having trouble understanding others when they speak, or they need to blast the TV or radio in order to hear it, then it’s worth getting a proper hearing evaluation from our team of ENT specialists. We can also provide you with hearing loss treatment options including hearing aids and implants.
You are dealing with persistent sinus problems
From chronic nasal congestion and facial pain to trouble breathing, there are a variety of sinus symptoms that can make living downright difficult at times. We know that sinus pain is uncomfortable and frustrating, especially if over-the-counter medications aren’t working or symptoms persist for several weeks. If you are having trouble getting sinus problems under control, give us a call.
You develop ringing in the ears
Tinnitus is a common problem that causes ringing or buzzing in the ears. This may be a sign of hearing loss or it could be caused by an injury or infection within the ear. It’s important that you visit an ENT specialist to find out why you’ve suddenly developed ringing in the ears.
You have a sore throat
While viruses are often to blame for fleeting sore throats, if your sore throat lasts or keeps coming back you may be wondering what’s going on. Did you know an ENT can help with that? We are able to examine your throat and determine whether your persistent or chronic sore throat could be due to conditions such as tonsillitis or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
