Sinus Pain Or Abscessed Tooth?

Sinus Pain Or Abscessed Tooth?

At The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria many patients come in with a toothache. In some cases, the toothache is a secondary symptom of a sinus condition. Let’s discuss the relationship.

Your maxillary sinuses are close neighbors of your top teeth. In some areas, only a sliver of tissue separates the upper tooth roots from the bottom of the sinus cavity. It’s no wonder that when there is pain in that general area, the specific location can be hard to pinpoint.

Allergies, infections, and the common cold can irritate sinus tissues. When sinus tissues become inflamed and infected, it can impact the teeth.

In extreme cases, swollen sinus tissues can actually move the teeth slightly, changing the bite. The reverse scenario can also take place. The infection surrounding an abscessed tooth can easily travel to the sinus cavity.

An abcessed tooth is a serious condition requiring prompt attention. If you have the slightest concern, call our office right away.

At The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria our services include complete family dentistry. Services also include restorative dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
