Tonsils & Adenoids
Two of the most important features of the throat are the tonsils and the adenoids. The tonsils and adenoids are at the forefront of the immune system and act as the first line of defense for the body. When functioning properly, the tonsils and adenoids act as a filter and sample viruses and bacteria that enters the body through the mouth and nose. When the tonsils and adenoids fail to function properly they can become infected and can cause many problems including airway obstruction and repeated bacterial infections. No other ENT doctors in Detroit are better equipped to deal with any irregularities in the tonsils, adenoids, or any other area of the throat.
There are many problems that can require the expertise of an ENT specialist, but the most common include:
- Repeated infections of the nose and throat
- Substantial enlargement/swelling that leads to nasal obstruction and/or breathing, swallowing and sleep problems
Abscesses around the tonsils, chronic tonsillitis, and any bacterial infections that cause foul-smelling, white deposits within the mouth can also adversely impact the tonsils and adenoids.
