Tooth tenderness


Upper teeth pain can sometimes be caused by a problem in the maxillary sinus - but if the tooth hurts when you tap it, or if there is pain in the mouth with hot or cold liquids, it's probably a tooth problem. Your dentist can help you determine if it's your teeth. Sometimes an Xray of your sinuses is needed to identify if it is a sinus problem.

Many possibilities


There are many reasons why you could have had more illness this past year. Some may be related to pure chance, while other reasons may be related to an increase to exposure to certain infections. If you are concerned that there could be an underlying deficiency in your immune system, consulting with your doctor would be beneficial for an evaluation.

If you know you have a sinus infection and are planning to fly, both an antibiotic and decongestant would be advisible. Due to pressure changes, even with those medications, the is still a possibility of pain in upper teeth, especially the molars.

Upper teeth?


Might be related. If your upper molars are sensitive and you have sinus pain, you could have a sinus infection. Antibiotics. You could also have a "heavy bite" on these upper molars radiating to your sinus. Have a dentist equilibrate your bite. If it doesn't get better, see an ENT MD (sinus) or a dentist (teeth).

Pain-tooth/sinus


Inital symptoms for cavities, sensitive teeth and sinus pain can be similar. Sensitivity to drinking cold or hot beverages, or eating certain solids can isolate the problem to the mouth. Discoloration of a tooth with pain/numbness and sensitivity not responding to soft brushing and toothpase for sensitive teeth leans toward a cavity. Cold/congestion over 1 week with fever may suggest sinus issues.

My first answer is get an exam and x-rays to determine if there is decay present causing the pain. Sinus pain will generally increase if you bend over while standing to pick something up off the floor

If you have a sinus infection it can make your teeth fell as if they need root canals. You need to have teeth checked to make sure there is no problem though.

It's possible


There's only 2 layers of cells between your upper root tips and the inside of your maxillary sinus. If sinus inflamed, can feel like toothache. Can have referred pain to lower teeth, although less common. Sit dow, bend over and put you head between your knees. If pain increases it's sinus, see an ENT. If pain doesn't change it's dental, see a dentist.

Pain is pain


Tooth decay creates tooth sensitivity, sinus pain can simulate tooth pain because of the pressure placed on the main nerve that runs in the floor of the sinus cavity. Sinus pressure, creates sinus pain, which can often be mistaken for tooth pain. Tooth pain, in the upper arch, can be from sinus pressure, or from tooth decay. Your dentist can be a BIG help in trying to identify the source of pain.
