wisdom extraction causing sinus infection
I'm just wondering if anyone after having their upper wisdom teeth pulled had sinus infection (s) and open communication between their mouth and nose? Yea, that's what I've been dealing with for about 3 weeks now. I guess my upper wisdom teeth roots were so up into my sinuses that after pulling them it has left an openning from my mouth to my nose cavity. Disgusting! Yes, I know. Well, I suffered through most of the first week recovering from all 4 wisdom teeth being pulled at once. I didn't feel great, but I had pain pills, but still I was feeling worse, so I went in for a post op visit, and of course, I had an infection, was given a 7 day supply of (augmenten) antibiotic and told not to blow my nose, do rinse with a saline nose spray, take my allergy medicine hopefully within 2 weeks the hole left after the upper teeth were pulled would heal naturally. Ok, I did that. 3 days off the antibiotic, I felt terrible and I have a fever, I called the oral surgeon's office, left work and went in for another visit - to get another prescription for probably the same sinus infection. Ok, now I'm on a 7 day supply of Keflex-antibotic. I have 3 days left, I feel better, and I think my one side may have healed on it's own. I sure hope the other side does too.
