Re: Sinus evaluation for likely dental issue
[removed]The root canal should be only if you have cold and hot sensitivity. If it's just cold sensitivity then, it could be a number of things. Has any of the dentists you went to said anything about the tooth being cracked. If it is cracked, in my experience, it needs a crown; and possibly a root canal later. The CT, to me, sounds good, if they have ruled out root canal and/or cracked. Although, I was kind of experiencing the same thing and my doctors thought it was a continuous sinus infection. I finally, went to an ENT (Ears, Nose, and Throat) and discovered I had acid reflux and it was getting up in my sinuses at night causing me the pain with my teeth because the roots of your teeth are in or very close to your sinuses. I hope this helps.
