Hi! I'm Dr. Mike Glasmeier, First Impressions Family Dentistry in Nashville, Tennessee. We'll be talking today about how to treat a toothache and how sinuses can be involved with toothaches. What you'll need for this is to consult your dentist about appropriate treatment and diagnoses for what causes toothache and what can be done about it. Toothaches can be caused by a multitude of different kinds of problems. One of them being just basically a cavity or infection that has occurred within the tooth that has invaded the nerve. When the nerve has been invaded, that alone will produce a toothache with symptoms such as biting pain, hot-cold sensitivity, throbbing pain that will come and go, things that will keep you up at night, things that would not allow you to sleep. Those are fairly common symptoms for a toothache. There are other things that can cause it such as sinuses. And when someone has really bad sinus infection or a congestion, or sinus pressure, it can also put a lot of pressure on the adjacent teeth that are on the sinus that will also lead one to think that they have a toothache. If one suspects that the sinus is maybe involved with producing a toothache, the first thing a person would do would be to take some sort of decongestant or antihistamine to try to clear the sinuses up. So if sinuses are suspected, I would eliminate the sinus infection first to rule out that it's not a true toothache. If it is indeed a dental toothache, then you need to consult your dentist about different treatment options that would be needed. Different options that typically include treating a toothache can involve something such as a root canal or sometimes an extraction of the tooth. In conclusion, there are different things such as sinuses that can contribute to the toothache but it's important to consult your dentist for further evaluation.
