Tooth Infection and Sinusitis

Tooth infection and Sinusitis
Pain from the upper jaws/face can be due to toothache or infection of the sinus as the upper teeth are “neighbours” to the maxillary sinus. Maxillary sinusitis can be due to a tooth infection and sometimes despite multiple sinus surgery and washouts, the sinusitis still persists if the tooth infection is not dealt with. It is important to make the correct diagnosis and to understand that sinusitis or teeth infection can be linked together. Our practice has expertise in dentistry and surgery to help you make the correct diagnosis.
