Yes, Because I personally would not want a infected tooth in my mouth. I would like to get that tooth out because I would not want to have to deal with that breath taking pain.

A sinus infection is normally located in the maxillary sinus cavity, which would, in the ordinary course of things, not be related to having a wisdom tooth pulled. You would have to consult your oral surgeon to see whether he or she would decide upon an extraction of your wisdom tooth. I doubt that it would be a problem. You (and your oral surgeon) would only be concerned about the parietal and/or maxillary nerves close to your wisdom tooth --- and your sinus cavity is not. Regards, Jim.

Sounds like a Sinus Trac. Which does not have anything to do with the sinus. But it is because there is an infection in the tooth. It looks like a little bump. But this is how the infection is trying to get out.

It could very well be a wisdom tooth trying to cut. When a wisdom tooth begins to cut, it can move several teeth in the process and cause some jaw pain. The ear pain could be drainage if a wisdom tooth is cutting. A few painkillers are your best bet to help the pain, or you could opt to have the wisdom teeth removed surgically. It could also be a sinus infection or infection in a root tooth. A dentist's x-ray is the best plan.

Here are some sentences.I have a sinus headache.The sinus cavities are located in the skull.

No, your wisdom teeth stays under your gum in the back of your mouth and it never comes out. When being tested in Scientific labs, Scientists know that wisdom teeth never come out in any infection, surgery, operation, etc. This is to my research, WIll [11] I had a sinus infection during just a dental cleaning and could not get rid of it for another 3 months thereafter. I would avoid a tooth extraction until you are better.

Yes, you can. An infection in your wisdom tooth is signaled by foul taste in your mouth, bad persistance breath, pain in your teeth, headache, fever and chills (at advanced stage infection).

If the tooth is an upper molar, more than likely it is a sinus infection, not a bad tooth. The roots of the upper teeth often sit right in the floor of the sinus, and when the sinus becomes congested, it can exert pressure on the nerve that goes into the tooth. This can feel like a toothache. See your dentist to be sure.

Some symptoms of a sinus infection include headache, bad breath, stuffy nose, fever, tooth pain and reduced sense of taste and smell. If you have quite a few of these symptoms then you could very likely have a sinus infection.

If it is an upper tooth, yes. That is because often the roots of the upper back teeth sit in the maxillary sinus. Any infection of those roots can result in problems with the sinus.

Definitely - specifically and upper wisdom tooth. Often the roots of wisdom teeth run into the sinus cavity and even some of the upper molars. If the tooth is abscessed and infected, it can cause serious problems. Infections in the mouth runs two ways, to the heart or to the brain. Always, get an abscessed tooth treated immediately.

To cure a wisdom tooth infection, there are two options.Option 1:If your wisdom tooth is normal, you need to follow a course of antibiotics to get rid off the infection, and maintain oral hygiene in order to avoid getting back such infection.Option 2:If your wisdom tooth is impacted, first you need to follow a course of antibiotics to get rid off the infection, while maintaining oral hygiene in order to avoid getting back such infection, and then get it extracted by an oral surgeon before the impacted tooth outgrows and damages the adjacent tooth.Tooth extraction can be done with just a local anesthesia using nitrous oxide (laughing gas ), or general anesthesia with an injection..

I haven't yet had my wisdom tooth out, but I have had alot of pain with it. For the past few months a lymph node in my neck has been swollen. Both the dentist and the doctor has assured me that it is because of and infection in my wisdom tooth. maybe you have just got an infection from getting the tooth removed.

if it is the source of an infection, it can

If you get food trapped in the hole where a wisdom tooth or any tooth was, be sure to rinse very well to dislodge the food. Failure to do so can cause infection and pain.

yeah!!! i got an infection...and let me tell you it hurts like hell..

The hard painful lump near your growing wisdom tooth is probably part of the tooth. However, it could be an infection under the gums and should be checked by a dentist.

An infected wisdom tooth can definitely become dangerous to your health. Any infection could potentially be life threatening if not taken care of.

Yes you sure can. Clindamycin is used to treat the following (amongst MANY others): Severe Sinusitis caused by Streptococcus Pneumoniae, Acute Streptococcus Pyogenes Bacteria Infection of Sinuses, Acute Sinus Infection caused by Staphylococcus Bacteria, Sinus Irritation and Congestion

a fewer? you mean fever? ITS NOT UNCOMMON. But its a sign of infection or abcess.

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 your bite could also cause sensitivity to biting or cold in a short period of time.

Some symptoms of infection after wisdom tooth removal can be severe pain ue to dry socket or puss draining out of whole.Im not a dr. but just from exsperiance.

Absolutely, yes. If the toothache is from an infection, the infection can cause inflammation and swelling which can then compress the sinus passages causing "sinus pressure". A dental infection can spread to the sinus and then to the brain.See a professional, soon.Good luck.Yes, toothache is related to a sinus problem than a tooth problem. it is tooth pain caused by an inflammation of the maxillary sinus, which are air filled cavities inside the human skull, lined with a mucous membrane. These types of infections usually go away with time, but some severe and persistent cases require antibiotics. Sinus infections may make it difficult to maintain dental

Wisdom teeth should be extracted when they push and damage the 7th tooth while they grow, also when they develop a cyst or cause an infection, and wisdom teeth are removed if they're causing problems with prosthesis. Here's an interesting video about wisdom tooth extraction.

Wisdom tooth is the 3rd molars and that build in each quadrant of the mouth.

Wisdom tooth extraction requires an oral surgeon when the wisdom tooth is compacted, or when the area around the tooth is infected.
