Can sinus issues cause tooth pain



Well-known member

I have a toothache. That tooth's root does go into my sinuses. I started taking nasonex and the pain is pretty much gone but my cheeks are sore, i probably have a mild sinus infection. That tooth is still sensitive when I eat. How long does it take to feel normal after the sinuses get better?
I will start with saying I’m not a dentist. When I would have pain due to my sinuses, it was mostly referred pain that can be confused with a tooth pain. Once the sinus pain was gone, I started feeling better and after a few days, something between 4 to 7 days, the residual pain was gone. The important thing is that your situation should keep getting better.
