New Video on Treatment of Hyper-Nasal Speech by Injection

Our office has created a new video that we have uploaded that shows how hyper-nasal speech can be corrected via injection of filler agents under endoscopic guidance.

Keep in mind that this procedure ONLY works with small velopharyngeal insufficiency.

Hyper-nasal speech occurs when there is too much nasal airflow during speech as opposed to hypo-nasal speech (ie, nasal obstruction) which occurs when there is little or no nasal airflow during speech. In either case, the voice sounds "nasal".

You can also read about how MRI scans can be used to diagnose velopharyngeal insufficiency here.

Check out the video here.
