Do Your Teeth Hurt When You Have a Sinus Cold?

By February 28, 2011

Follow me on:

It's that time of year, folks. Sinus colds, flu, sore throats, all terrible and completely unwanted. I woke up this morning with a sinus cold and besides the constant sneezing, my upper teeth also hurt.

When you have a sinus cold, are your teeth affected? Have you gone to see your dentist because you thought that you had a toothache only to find the pain and/ or tenderness was caused by your sinuses? below!

This is very interesting and something, as dentists, we should tell our patients about.

The flu can definitely cause tooth pain, and may even cause someone to believe they have developed tooth decay. Great topic, great post.

Oh wow! I had this same experience happen to me. My tooth was incredibly sore and tender.. I was also knocked out from a sinus cold. I was incredibly down in the dumps. I felt like my whole body was falling apart. When I went to the dentist, he informed me about this same thing.. I felt so relieved. Thanks, again!
