The Unexpected Teeth and Sinus Connection

When you feel pain in your tooth, you usually expect something to be wrong with it. However, tooth pain can quite often be a result of pressure from the sinuses.

If you are having a bad cold or a sinus infection, or even if you just have narrow nasal passages in general, it may be the source of your tooth pain. The buildup of mucous in the nasal passages presses on all of the muscle and tissue surrounding it resulting in pressure and pain on your upper teeth, the teeth closest to the sinuses.

It’s always best to consult with a dentist if you are experiencing any tooth pain. If you have a cold or sinus infection, it’s best to let the dentist know this relevant piece of information so that they can help you make the best choices for your care.
