Brief Answer: Deviated nasal septum is most probable Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX I have read your query. You probably seem to have a Deviated nasal septum (DNS). That is the reason for not able to breath through the right nostril. It also becomes more at night while you are asleep. Nothing to panic; this is a common problem. I would suggest you to consult an ENT specialist and get your nose examined for the same. In my view, it is not related to the teeth braces that you had. Please go ahead with the consultation. On confirmation, management can be planned accordingly. Meanwhile, you can do steam inhalation twice daily to get some relief. Take care and get well soon.
