About 1 month ago I lost my voice, went to doc and was put on a prenasone pack that I finished three weeks ago...My voice is still hoarse and my face is swollen. I thought facial swelling might be caused by staten meds I was put on during the month but

If your hoarseness was caused by vocal cord edema, you would have noticed some improvement. Now, you should have an ENT look at your vocal cords directly with a special camera in the clinic to determine the cause. ...Read more

I have symptoms of sinusitis with mild facial swelling. A year ago, I had a root canal on the same side on the upper molar number two with a crown placed. That tooth is tender now. What could be the cause of swelling, tooth or sinus? I am not sure whom to

Dentist First: From you history, I would start with the root canal tooth, then work from there. It is possible, given your timeline, that the root canal possibly failed, and the infection recurred. If so, treatment is necessary and may allow you to still save the tooth. It is possible it's a sinus infection, but my first guess would be the rct tooth. You want a "pa x-ray", digital if possible, or ct scan. ...Read more
