Why do I feel this way?

SPONSORED

 

 

Sinus congestion, teeth ache, runny nose, why do I just feel horrible and then who do I go and see, my physician or dentist.   Why does this happen?

The upper back teeth naturally have the roots close to the sinus cavity, so when you have a cold, allergies are in full swing, or a sinus infection usually both sides of your sinuses will be full and your physician will be a good place to start.

Can your teeth in the lower jaw hurt too?  It is possible to have a sinus problem and it cause the lower teeth to ache also.  The reason is that pain from the sinuses can be referred to the lower jaw.

 On the other hand, if the pain is more localized to one side and is increasing in sharpness and length of time the tooth or teeth hurt, then you may have an infection from a tooth.  Once an infection starts from a tooth it will get worse, you can experience swelling of the gum around the tooth or swelling of the cheek.

Finally, if the pain becomes intense or you have swelling in or around the month you need to see your dentist right away.
