Learn how the teeth can affect the sinuses and how to tell which is the cause of your problem.

Sinus Headache or Tooth Infection?

No, and here’s why. Infections weaken the immune system, and as an infection grows, it pushes the teeth further back. The closest thing to your upper teeth is the maxillary sinus, which is located in the cheek above your teeth.

Once you have this combination of infections, it can spread to your lymph nodes or neck before infecting your throat, which will cause irritation or inflammation. These are signs that a serious infection may be traveling in your blood stream.

Being proactive about tooth discomfort can help you get on the path to a healthier smile
