sinus drainage after multiple extractions

I had all my top teeth pulled in May of 2011,on my initial consultation,the dentist remarked that my top last molar on the right side,gave him some concern,as it was close to my sinuses.My dentures had been precast before my teeth were pulled and went in as soon as he was done extracting all my teeth and stitching me up.Other than the usual discomfort to be expected,i was fine,but sometime in December,i began to have drainage in my mouth,but i cant really pinpoint where its coming from.Not to be gross or anything,but its not like saliva,its more the consistency of a runny nose,:ie;sinuses.Its coming from my top gums,but its hard to tell where.I saw my MD a few days ago,she had never heard of a case of having a tooth pulled and sinus draining through the extraction site,so she put me on antibiotics,and said shed refer me to an ENT if it persists.So i looked it up on the internet and found many articles describing what i have,including this website.I really cant afford more oral surgery,but i cant even wear my dentures,they fill up with the yukky stuff in a short time.I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience,and how they dealt with it,and what the cost for an oral surgeon might be to fix it.The strange thing to me is,it was the one tooth that didnt have a cavity,why didnt the oral surgeon tell me,lets just leave that tooth,so you wont have problems with it?Any thoughts?

Re: sinus drainage after multiple extractions

You need to go back to the oral surgeon as you may have an oro antral fistula.In the meantime avoid blowing your nose. Medical doctors don't know much about dental problems so will not be much help.
