pressure on tooth sinus?

For the last few days I have had the strangest sensation of pressure pushing down on an eye tooth. I had a root canal in the tooth next to it about 10 years ago. There is no pain, but pressure and at times it seems to pulse with my heartbeat. At times it feels almost as if someone literally has their finger up my nose, and the sensation seems to move a little from time to time. I often have sinus pain and pressure, but nothing like this. I'm really hoping it's just sinus problems and that I don't need a second root canal. Can sinuses cause a feeling of cold/pressure on just one tooth? I started on antibotics this morning just in case it is a root canal, but I'm -really- hoping it's just sinuses, as I can't get to see my dentist until August.

Re: pressure on tooth sinus?

I have one tooth that has pulsing sensations and hurts if my sinuses are congested, but it's a molar. My dentist showed me the X-ray of how close the tooth's root is to my sinus. So I know it's possible - at least for a molar. An eye tooth seems pretty far forward for that but who knows? Good luck waiting until August!

I had the same feeling, turned out to be a nasopalitine cyst. It was pushing all the nerves around. It only showed up on a full set of X-rays. Surgery followed..

Re: pressure on tooth sinus?

A sinus infection can definitely cause eyetooth pain. I hope the antibiotic you are taking is one appropriate for a sinus infection.
