Our teeth are connected to our sinus cavity via the alveolar process which is a ‘U’ shaped process. Throbbing teeth are a symptom of sinus infection. It occurs when a person’s maxillary sinuses get infected. This can also occur if a person has some kind of infection in the teeth or gums. This infection spreads to the maxillary sinuses creating sinus infection symptoms like throbbing teeth.
Poor oral hygiene can cause bacteria to grow in the teeth and gums. The bacteria build up may cause the bacteria to enter the maxillary sinus. This can also result in a sinus infection. Proper care should be taken of the teeth and gums to avoid sinus infection symptoms like throbbing teeth.
Toothache or throbbing teeth due to sinus is similar to the toothache we have during other dental trouble. Cheeks become swollen or sensitive to touch in both cases. Sinus infection symptoms like throbbing teeth accompanied by other symptoms like a headache, runny nose, fatigue and fever are sure shot signs of a sinus infection.
Though dental pain is always confused with pain associated with sinus, there is a difference between the two. Sinus pain occurs when there is trouble with the maxillary sinuses whereas dental pain occurs when there is trouble with the teeth. It is recommended that you visit a dentist as soon as possible in both cases.
Sinus infection symptoms like throbbing teeth are very spontaneous. They are caused by a fluid build up in the maxillary sinus. It normally occurs in the upper and back teeth. Dental pain can occur in any part of the teeth. A gum infection is normally called gingivitis.
Other symptoms associated with dental sinus pain are swollen gums, tenderness in the cheek bones, facial swelling and a throbbing headache. This type of sinusitis is no different from other types. The same course of treatment is given for this type of sinus.
Sinusitis in the maxillary cavity can be avoided by taking proper care of the teeth. Brushing twice a day, flossing regularly and periodic visits to the dentist can help in avoiding sinus infection symptoms like throbbing teeth.
