Can a Sinus Infection Cause Tooth Pain?

Posted on 4/1/2024 by Weo Admin

These air-filled cavities beneath your nose, forehead, and cheeks are called sinuses. Your teeth and surrounding sites may experience pressure buildup if they get completely obstructed due to a sinus infection.

Since some of the roots of your upper teeth are near your sinuses, swelling in those sinuses may press against the tooth roots, resulting in severe discomfort. Therefore, do not be surprised if you have a sinus infection and your teeth start hurting. Most likely, your sinuses are overexerting themselves. Should the discomfort intensify, see a doctor or dentist.

How Can You Tell If a Sinus Infection Is the Cause of Your Tooth Pain

Differentiating between sinus pain and regular toothaches might be challenging. They both seem persistent, though the pain could be sharp or dull and aching. Toothaches also occur immediately following an allergic reaction or fever.

Opportunist bacteria thrive when your immune system is weak, which can lead to the recurrence of underlying dental problems. The following are some clear signs that a sinus infection is the source of your tooth pain: toothache in several teeth, nasal congestion, lack of sensitivity to the teeth, pain in the upper back molars, and pain when biting or chewing food.

If none of these symptoms apply to you, an underlying dental problem may be the cause of the issue. For the best care, make an appointment with your dentist straight away.

What Is the Duration of a Sinus Toothache?

Once your sinus infection is treated, the pain should go away if your teeth are in good health and there are no underlying dental issues. Sinus toothaches can take 7-10 days to clear up with the right care.
