Pierced sinus cavity during root canal

Well I had round 2 of my root canal therapy today (all 1 1/2 hours of it), and at one point, one of the files pierced my sinus cavity.

I didn't notice until after the procedure when some blood came out of my nose.

Dentist gave me antibiotics, told me to take a decongestant, and to irrigate with saline. My bleeding has stopped, but my teeth on top are pretty sore. Don't know if this is normal, or if it is aggravated by the sinus issue.

has anyone experienced this before? Had no idea this was going to happen.

Re: Pierced sinus cavity during root canal

Sorry,I have no insight to share. I had one root canal (worst dental experience I ever had!), but didn't experience this.

Just wanted to say I'm sorry this happened. How are you feeling now?

Re: Pierced sinus cavity during root canal

The tooth feels fine, but my sinuses feel swollen, I have mild headaches, and I was running a low-grade fever this morning
