Re: Teeth pain after sinus surgery

It can take awhile to go away, but it is not something to be alarmed about unless OTC pain meds don't take care of it, in which case you need to tell the doc that.

Often all the upper teeth can feel painful. It is because the nerves from the teeth extend right up to the sinus cavities. So any inflammation in the sinuses can cause tooth pain and/or general discomfort. My dentist explained this to me and a year after sinus surgery I can always tell when there is sinus inflammation because I feel it more in my teeth than my sinuses.

"The only thing that makes me depressed, Doc, is not getting any answers from you."
