You need to see an ENT and oral surgeon
Is it ok to get a septoplasty
You are describing separate issues that could be addressed together or at the same time. Fixing the septum (septoplasty) can improve your ability to breathe. Normally the septum does not affect your teeth. I would recommend getting an evaluation with an Ear Nose & Throat surgeon so a thorough head and neck exam could be done. This may require a nasal endoscopy to examine the back of the nasal cavity for septal deviations as well. You may also require a CT of your sinuses to rule out sinus disease or obstructions of the sinuses. It would make sense to address the nasal and sinus issues at the same time.
