Dr Had A Glob Of Infection In Sinus Effecting Tooth
Dr. Says ear infection, gave leviqun & motrin still in a lot of pain 2 days later in ear jaw & upper & lower teeth could it be a tooth problem?
Possibly: Ear infections can cause referred pain in lower teeth and jaws. Likewise, lower tooth dental pain can be referred to the ears. One possibility could be wisdom teeth (third molars). If your M.D. Is not absolutely sure this is an ear infection, then you should have an evaluation by a dentist as well to mae sure the problem is not actually your wisdom teeth and not your ears at all. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Fractured Root?: There are multiple reasons why you may still be in pain. Some include: antibiotic taken incorrectly, wrong antibiotic for the infection, fractured tooth root, gum infection, even cancer (although the last option is extremely unlikely). The bottom line is, see your dentist immediately. No infection should last 5-weeks on the proper antibiotic. As a rule, your mouth should never hurt. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
On day 9 of bad cold, and day 3 of 875 mg of amox. for ear infection after flying with said cold. Today snot turned canary yellow. Normal?
Also have a sinus dip over retained babytooth- can that complicate congestion?
Continue antibiotic: Sounds like more than a typical cold - possible sinusitis or other bacterial infection with the ear infection. For now I would continue the antibiotic as prescribed and follow up with your doctor if not better by the 7th day. Make sure to get plenty of fluids and rest. Vitamin C is also helpful. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Was diagnosed with severe sinus infection from dr on X-ray in right sinus, taking antibiotics now, does this infection cause teeth numbness ?
It can.: A sinus infection (sinusitis) can cause a toothache — especially in the upper rear teeth, which are close to the sinuses. Pain in the upper teeth is a fairly common symptom with sinus conditions. I would assume some people could experience numbness rather than pain. Hopefully this symptom will go away as the infection is treated. If not, you may need to see a dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have sinus drainage that is causing a cough. Along with major headache/pressure in my face. Is this a sinus infection or upper respiratory infection?
I had a root canal that resulted in swollen jaw and a fever of around 100. I started on 300mg of Clindamycin t.i.d. Will that bring the fever down? I also had a gum boil which got drained.
See a dentist: Most often, an infection should be evaluated by a health provider. Any abscess will heal more quickly once drained, because antibiotics won't get into an area without blood supply. For that reason there is a higher risk of complication or spread of infection to other areas if this is not performed. In particular, the bacteria in a serious dental infection can affect the heart valves. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I have a enlarged lymph node in the back of my neck , I just finished a 10 day course of amoxicillin for a possible sinus infection and this is new ?
Give it time: Node enlargement is often the result of an immune response. Thus even if Amox has killed off the infection the immune response takes a little while longer to calm down. Give it another 2-3 weeks. If the node fails to decrease in size, consult your doctor. ...Read more
Could a fragment of tooth root (my ENT doctor believe) in sinus cause headaches only on one side? What else could a white shadow on xray be in sinus?
What to do about chronic sinus infections after root canal/crown. Dentist is dismissive of the problem. 2 years ago i cracked a tooth because of a deep cavity i was unaware of (that parts my responsibility) the tooth was also infected. I had a root canal
I : I would recommend getting an evaluation by a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Their training would enable them to determine if the 2 year history of sinus infections is directly related to your dental health. Obviously I am not in a position to examine you or review xrays of the teeth and sinuses, but 2 years seems a long time to have chronic sinus infections without significant oral findings other than decay. It is normal for the root tips of the upper back teeth to be close to the sinus, in fact, in many cases the roots actually protrude into the sinus. That is why these teeth can sometimes be symptomatic with sinusitis. The oms can give you an opinion as to whether the tooth should be removed or it there are other options for treatment. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Im on a second round of amoxicillin for a suspected ongoing sinus infection. I have lots of pain and pressure in temples. Im worried that ongoing use of amox will cause temporal arteritis?
I had a tooth extraction. Had an abcess and afraid infection got into blood will the extraction take care of infection. If its in the blood..?
Immune system: If you are not immune-compromised, the infection-fighting components of your immune system in the blood stream will usually be quite protective. Dental abscesses have no blood supply so fairly high levels of systemic antibiotics are necessary to be effective. Once your full immune system comes into play via the blood stream the infection will usually resolve more rapidly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sinus pain in left side of face 2 weeks after a sinus infection. Over the infection what's the cause? This is also the 2nd infection in 2 months
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 moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Also see a dentist: You may have multiple independent issues or you could have a dental (or other) infection that is the root cause of your symptoms. We are missing part of your post but it is good that you saw an ENT. Once you get a dental evaluation, you should be on your way to getting a diagnosis and treatment pan. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
With prev. Question: is it meningitis? I had symptoms of it for three days before the sinus infection symptoms kicked in. Bulging disc a risk factor?
I have been struggling with ear fluid and a buildup of phlegm in upper part of throat. This started with a cold. I have had two ear infections since. They discovered MRSA, which has now cleared. CT scan is clear. Prilosec did not work. ?
Phlegm: It sounds like you still have sinus inflammation with mucous draining down into your throat. Try a nasal steroid like Flonase for maintenance therapy or an antihistamine like Claritin. If symptoms persist, oral antibiotics or low dose oral prednisone may help. An ENT consult may be needed. ...Read more
Could swollen lymph nodes with normal CBC in neck be from wisdome tooth extraction 10months ago? Had bad infection & hole in sinuses at the time
Not likely: Even if it took longer to heal (hole in sinus and infection), it is not likely that you would have a persistent swollen lymph node, assuming that it eventually did in fact heal. This is especially true if you have not experienced any other symptoms since then (over the 10 months). This doesn't rule out having a swollen lymph node from another separate dental infection. Have you had a recent cold? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I had a root canal last week and nowmy jaw is swollen and I'm in a lot of pain. Xray doesn't show any sign of infection and my dentist sayshe can't do?
I had a sinus infection 2 weeks ago & it was severe I had a ball on the bottom right tooth & my tooth ached 2 but it has ben gone since. Could I die?
Uncommon: The teeth are usually separated from the sinus by bone and a membrane. It is unusual for a tooth infection to spread through both of those barriers, though not impossible. A tooth infection can, however, feel as if it is going into the sinus because the nerves can be closely connected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I now have a sinus infection after having my lower right wisdom tooth extracted a few weeks ago. Is this a complication?
Gum pain where tooth was extracted years ago and seems like it's only happens when I have a cold or sinus infection why ?
Referred pain: People who get sinus infections often have pain referred to upper teeth or adjacent areas of the mouth. This is not uncommon. Branches of the same nerve may transmit pain and the exact origin of the pain cannot always be interpreted exactly by our brains. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a severe sinus infection and it goes in and out... I had like a ball on thge right side of my face lower bottom tooth. It hurts. Wat is this?
Dental abscess: If the swelling is on one of the lower teeth (along the lower jaw line) you don't have a sinus infection, but you are probably developing a dental abscess. Either way you will need antibiotics. If it is dental in origin, the offending tooth will have to be pulled. Get seen quickly to prevent a severe abscess which may require surgery to drain. See a doctor or dentist asap. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I've had a recurring sinus infection, coupled with severe tooth pain. Do i possibly need a root canal?
Maybe...: It sounds like there is an infection that is tooth related. If this is the case and your tooth can be saved, a root canal may be your answer. There are too many issues to resolve without a professional evaluation. See your dentist asap and get well ;-). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I had upper right second molar pulled do to infection 3weeks ago sinus infection ever sense socket still deep and open could it be do to tooth infecti?
Tooth\Sinus Infect: Infections can spread. A tooth infection can spread to sinus & this might have happened even prior to the extraction of the tooth. There is no way to know for sure. The sinus infections might have been brewing without your knowledge. What's important is that you receive the proper antibiotic coverage and have your dentist evaluate for oral-antral communication. Discuss also with ENT specialist\GP. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My last upper natural tooth had pain of sinus infection which is much better. Can I go ahead with its planned extraction I wear partial upper dentures?
Dental disease: The sinus infection may well have been due to an apical abscess of the tooth, or tooth pain may be reflected from sinus infection to the tooth root. If you have partial dentures the fit may be altered by tooth removal, but only the dentist seeing you can determine that. Go and discuss that with your dentist before proceeding. Good luck. ...Read more
I have noticed frequent sinus infections and headaches since wisdom tooth removal. Is that related?
Check with the Dr.: Some wisdom teeth extractions involve the sinuses so there could be some connection. Depending on how hard the teeth were to remove, you might be having some TMJ soreness from the pulling and pressure on the joint between the lower jaw and upper jaw. I would talk to whoever took out the tooth. Nsaids like Aleve (naproxen) or Ibuprofen may relieve most of the pain and headaches. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have a sinus infection (very bad smell) from a tooth extraction (13 days ago). Is it safe to do a sinus drainage, if so what is the best way to do so?
I took Augmentin in May for a sinus infection, i now have a tooth infection is it safe for me to take Augmentin again so close to each other?
Augmentin: Not my first choice for dental infection. Antibiotics, by the way, do not cure infected teeth, only prevent spread of infection for as long as you take it. You would need at lest 5 days worth. Yes, safe to take. But remember the tooth itself will require treatment for a cure, so see your dentist as soon as possible. ...Read more
I have had a possible sinus infection for over 2 weeks.With OTC treatment made better, have ear and lower tooth pain now. Severe for a day? Related ?
I am on Amox clav 875mg and prednisone for sinus infection and/or tooth infection. when will I start to feel better? I'm on 3rd day.
2 calls: 1. Antibiotic will not cure infected tooth, only control spread of infection. Call your Dentist for an emergency appointment, even if you start to feel better. If tooth infected symptoms will return after antibiotic finished. 2. Call Physician to report progress. Referral to ENT may be advisable. Some things can't be fixed with just a pill. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
