Did . Did the pain in the two front teeth start with the sinus congestion? If so, there is probably a correlation. Pressure in the sinuses from congestion (commom cold or allergies) can put pressure on different nerves in and around the sinuses. This pressure can be interpreted by your brain as pain coming from a tooth, usually maxillary (upper) teeth. It can also cause an earache for the same reasons. Try a decongestant and/or anti-inflammatory otc meds to alleviate your congestion. The pain should diminish if not go away. If the pain persist after having your cold treated, then you will need to see your dentist to determine the cause of your tooth pain. Read more...
It . It sounds like your wife has a severe sinusitus-inflammed sinus, with an infection. I have allergies and suffer from sinusitus regularly, but luckily, with no tooth pain. I use simply saline from arm & hammer to flush the sinus and i prefer Aleve (naproxen) cold & sinus for the pain and congestion. For mild to moderate sinusitus, this works very well, for me, and i recommend it to all my patients with similar issues. It sounds like your wife is a little worse off and i would strongly recommend her see her primary care physician or an ear/nose/throat so see can get an antibiotic to treat the sinus infection. Once she starts the antibiotic, all of her congestion and pain should subside. If the tooth pain lingers, get to a dentist for evaluation. As a general rule of thumb, tooth pain comes first, then the infection spreads causing pain and congestion in the sinus. Read more...
