Dentures and sinus problem

I had a full set of dentures made and my dentist told me to take them out at night or i would end up with sinus problems down the road. Well I did not listen to him and now i have a hard time sleeping because my nose pluggs on one side or the other and i can't breath but though my mouth and i can not breath though my mouth and sleep. I would like to know if this condition is reversable. or what i can use to keep the nose open.

You should see your doctor for a nasal exam to rule-out other more serious diseases of the nose, throat or sinuses.  If this really is from the denture wear, this condition should be reversible with the use of nasal washes, a nasal steroid and, perhaps, the use of Breathe-Right nasal strips.  A nasal wash helps remove mucus from your nose and sinuses.  It is most helpful when done daily before using any nasal spray.  A prescription nasal steroid spray decreases the inflammation of the nose and sinuses.  A nasal steroid spray does not provide immediate relief of symptoms.  It may need to be used every day for several weeks to months for it to help.  Please read our Nasal Wash MedFact at http://www.nationaljewish.org/medfacts/nasal.html for more information about this technique.
