Superior Turbinates: The superior turbinates are small structures located within the uppermost area of the nasal cavity. They are composed of curled protruding bones covered with mucus membranes. The function of the superior turbinates is to keep the flow of inspired air steady and to circulate it around the greatest possible surface area. This optimizes the ability of the nasal cilia to trap foreign particles, pollutants, and pathogens and to help warm and moisturize air before it flows into the remainder of the respiratory tract.
Conditions that can afflict the superior turbinates include nasal polyps, nasal fractures, upper respiratory infections, respiratory allergies, smoking, and trauma.
