Types of Nasal Splints
Nasal splints are devices used to support and protect the nose. There are a variety of different types of nasal splints, but all serve the same purpose: to keep the nose stable and protected after surgery or an injury. Nasal splints are typically made from either plastic or metal, and are designed to be as comfortable as possible for the patient.

External nose splints are the most common type of nasal splint. They are usually made from moldable aluminum or thermoplastic and can be trimmed to fit the patient's nose. External splints are typically worn for 7-10 days after nasal surgery or an injury.
Internal splints are usually used after a septoplasty or correction of a deviated septum. They’re made up of two pieces of plastic or other firm but flexible material inserted inside the nose to support the bridge between the nostrils, or septum.
