Question From Our Member - Why Did My Dentist Prescribe Sinus Medication?

 Questions From Our Members

R. Blackwood of Topeka, Kansas asks: 

“I went to the dentist for a toothache.  They took some x–rays and prescribed me some sinus medication.  Can a sinus infection really cause a toothache?”

Savon’s Answer

Yes, a sinus infection (sinusitis) or inflammation can cause a toothache — specifically in the upper rear teeth, which are close to the sinuses.  In fact, pain in the upper teeth is a fairly common symptom with sinus conditions.  Since you went to your dentist with a toothache, we suggest that you follow your dentist´s advice.
