Re: Sinus Infection or Tooth Decay (Absessed Tooth)
I have had sinus problems and acute dental pain for the last few years, and kept getting told by different dentists "oh its not your teeth, its your sinuses", but i finally saw an oral surgeon and he confirmed that it was definitely was not my sinuses and then i was referred to a nice lady dentist who sent me to an endodontist who confirmed, after investigation, that i did indeed have 3 infected root treated teeth that were irritating my sinuses. I plan to have two of the teeth re root treated and the third (a back molar) extracted. Ive already had one re root treated, and am feeling so much better already.
If your present dentist does not seem to be coming up with a diagnosis/solution to your pain, go see another dentist - i did and it was the best thing I ever did. Check websites for local endodontist in your area, and make an appt to see one asap. he/she will have all the equipment that will help him/her to give a correct diagnosis to your problem, and confirm or eliminate dental problems, as the cause of your pain
good luck and let us all know how you get on.
