Can you get a sinus infection from having a cavity filled or from the numbing agent?
No, that will not cause a sinus infection.
Well, it isn't exactly that simple.....if it is an upper tooth and that tooth's roots rest right up against the maxilary sinus - like it does in many people - a deep cavity can irritate the nerve and the sinus will also become irritated. In the case of an extraction, there is a definite link between teeth and sinus infections. So, never say never.

Yes, it's safe, but be sure to tell the dentist anyway. They will want to know, especially if you are on medications. Yes it is ok to fill your cavity. Unless your have an acu…te infection and your doctor told you to stay in bed, then you can postpone your appointment. But if you can function there is no problem in treating your cavity.
Answer . Sinus infections usually occur when sinuses become blocked, making the warm, moist, mucus-filled sinus cavity a perfect medium in which viruses or bacteria can gro…w. \nAlthough neither a cold nor an allergy flare-up causes sinus infections, there is a link. These conditions may cause inflammation in the sinus cavity and prevent sinuses from draining properly. This blockage can potentially lead to congestion and infection. \nIt's important, therefore, to notify your doctor when cold or allergy symptoms seem to hang on longer than usual (7-10 days).
Answer . Yes, I'm prone to these infections and the infection can affect neck glands and make your neck stiff and sore.
Dentists make sure that the filling is cured before you leave theiroffice. So, you could drink water as soon as your appointment isover.
No. But if the nerve in the filled tooth died after having the filling placed it could cause pain that could mimic a sinus or ear infection. A new filling that is "high" in yo…ur bite could also cause sensitivity to biting or cold in a short period of time.
No. When I was a child, fillings were routinely done without anaesthesia or numbing. It did hurt, but you could take it. Sometimes the Novocaine shot can be just as brutal. … Of course, those were also the days when you got a sugar candy treat on your way out as a reward for being good. We hadn't really made the connection between sugar and cavities yet. Things are better now on both scores.
Absolutely. I had a ct scan of sinuses recently and only 1 maxillary sinus is infected.
I recently had a root canal done on a tooth that has been dead for about 20 years. I'm 36 now and decided its time for braces.never had any pain in the tooth,but in order to g…et braces a root canal needed to be preformed. Low and behold a few days later after the canal was completed I am experiencing sinus pressure on my forhead near the bridge of my nose, no other cold sumptoms,just pressure.I wondered if the two were connected and have been told by several people that it is a possibility.either way I will see my doctor tomm. and have her put me on antibiotics to see if it will get rid of this problem..hope this helps
You could smoke right after having a tooth filled, though I would not suggest it. maybe wait an hour or so but it should not have any affect pain-wise. The only thing is that …if you've had white colored filling, the smoke, after time, may cause them to darken in color. I just had two of my teeth filled today and i smoked right after because my dentist told me my answer i have given to you.
After having a cavity filled you're most likely to be experiencing numbness. You may not be able to speak for a while. But if numbness has gone away you should feel fine.
Any infection in the body would be of concern to an orthopedic surgeon. as infection can travel from one part of the body to another. Orthopedic surgeons are particularly para…noid about the risk of infection as the bone is about as deep as you can go in the body. I suggest you speak with him/her about this before you go under the knife.
Hi there. I personally think that they can. In fact I just googled this very question myself and I'm having allergy/mild sinus issues the past few days. Additonally I've been …having this tingling in my scalp on one side and sometimes even in my throat. It's been off an on over several days and very slight but still creepy. I've worried myself over "could it be a stroke" but calmed myself after reading about onset of stroke etc. Hopefully you're doing well now and the feeling is gone. Take care!
no it isnot
This entirely depends on the cavity. For most moderate size cavities, that don't go too near the pulp (blood and nerve supply to the tooth) you can actually have filled with…out anaesthetics. You would just feel the vibration and pressure of the drill, possibly a bit of sensitivity- but no sharp pain. However if you have alot of toothache and it is a very large cavity, you may get pain on drilling. The actual filling of a cavity with material is painless, obviously.
Yes, if there is enough pressure in the sinuses it can impinge on the facial or trigeminal nerve and cause numbness in the face. However, this would be a very severe sinus inf…ection and any numbness in the face should be reported to your doctor immediately to help prevent permanent nerve damage.
