Re: Sensitive teeth from sinuses?
Yes, it can definitely go both ways. That's part of how I ended up with the recent wisdom tooth extraction I underwent. For a long time it was thought the pain was tied up with my sinuses, because I have allergies. But subsequent x-rays after the sinuses cleared showed the impacted teeth. One of them shortly thereafter began to ulcerate, so it was a clearer diagnosis. Then one of the theories for why the extraction pain has been worse than expected following surgery was that the extraction could have spread bacteria back to the sinuses, but I was treated with seven days of antibiotics that they think would have solved that problem if it was an infection. Either way, you should be evaluated by a doc. They can do sinus/tooth x-rays that will show up if you're having sinus problems or an infection in the teeth (well, sometimes the tooth infection shows up, sometimes not) that might have come from that or vice versa. They might not know which came first, the chicken or the egg if it's both, but an x-ray should show if you're having significant sinus infection. Take care of that, then go from there if you still have tooth pain.
