Sinusitis and Tooth Pain by Dr. Pramanik NamrataDr. Pramanik Namrata
Sinusitis is an inflammation of the cavities(sinus spaces) present around the nose. In cases of acute sinusitis , most often caused by cold, there is a build up of mucus in these cavities. This may often lead to pain in the upper back teeth area. The roots of upper molars often extend into the sinus area.
In case of pain in upper molar teeth , dental causes like cavities or gum problems can also lead to persistent/intermediate pain .These causes should also be treated /eliminated as cause of pain in upper molar teeth.
