Re: Teeth pain after sinus surgery

Often all the upper teeth can feel painful. It is because the nerves from the teeth extend right up to the sinus cavities. So any inflammation in the sinuses can cause tooth pain and/or general discomfort. My dentist explained this to me and a year after sinus surgery I can always tell when there is sinus inflammation because I feel it more in my teeth than my sinuses.

Thank you so much. I was worried. As long as I know it is common, than I won't panic. I don't like it, but at least I know it is normal.

Thanks again.....
