Last Fall I had an old crown replaced. I am sensitive to neprozephrin (sp) so he gave me a novacaine without it. I kept getting un-numb so he kept giving me more novacaine. I had an allergic reaction and felt quite sick. Then when he took the temp. off and put the permanent crown on, I had a worse reaction. My sinus has become enlarged and I my left cheek gets swollen and hot when exposed to the sun and moisterizers. My short term memory is getting bad and I'm having trouble concentrating. I am not getting answers from my doctor or dentist. Please help me.
Your sinus problem could be a reaction to dental materials, or possibly there is an infection in the nerve, which isn't always visible on x-ray. I, too am dealing with a sinus problem. You may want to call DAMS at (800)311-6265 for a referral to a biological dentist.
