Tooth Hurts When I Blossom My Nose

Tooth pain can be a symptom of sinus problems. Infected, irritated, or swollen sinuses can create pressure that pushes into the upper back teeth, which are located directly above your nasal sinus lining. The nerves in those upper back teeth can then interpret that physical pressure as a toothache, so you may experience pain in those teeth when stooping, sneezing or coughing.

This type of tooth pain is different than the normal sensitivity many people have to hot, cold or sweet foods and beverages. That’s caused when sugars from the food and drinks stay in the mouth, feed bacteria, and create acids that eat away at the tooth enamel and dentin. That’s why brushing, flossing and rinsing are so important for your oral health.

However, if you have a toothache that seems to be related to your sinuses, don’t just treat the teeth — also address the sinus infection. Over-the-counter medications like a decongestant can help relieve sinus pressure and may eliminate the toothache as well. If a simple over-the-counter medication doesn’t do the trick, see your doctor or an ear nose throat (ENT) specialist to get a prescription for antibiotics. That should resolve the sinus infection and the toothache. If it doesn’t, your dentist can do a limited exam to make sure there isn’t a dental cause for the pain.
