Sinus Pain Or Abscessed Tooth?

Sinus Pain Or Abscessed Tooth?

Your maxillary sinuses are very close upstairs neighbors of your top teeth. In some areas, only a sliver of tissue separates the upper tooth roots from the bottom of the sinus cavity. It’s no wonder that when there is pain in that general area, the distinct location can be hard to pinpoint.

Allergies, infections, and the common cold can irritate sinus tissues. When sinus tissues become swollen and infected, it can impact the teeth.

In acute cases, swollen sinus tissues can actually move the teeth slightly, changing the bite. The reverse scenario can also take place. The infection surrounding an abscessed tooth can easily travel to the sinus cavity.

An abscess is an infected pocket of pus in a tooth and/or the surrounding bone and tissue. The most prevalent type of oral abscess stems from the pulp of the tooth and is generally caused by dental caries.

When an abscess is small, it may go unnoticed but it will eventually lead to pain.

An abscess can cause total tooth loss and the infection can also destroy jawbone.

If an abscess hurts the tooth until it is beyond saving and requires extraction, a dental implant is one replacement option – but only if there is enough bone to anchor the implant.

How can you tell an abscessed tooth from a sinus infection?
Sinus pain generally manifests itself as a dull, continuous pain while the pain from an abscessed tooth increases in intensity. If you tap on an abscessed tooth, you will most likely feel a sharp shock of pain.

You have several sinus cavities, and pain can emanate from any or all of them, so if you have infection in more than one sinus cavity, you may have pain behind the nose and eyes. As mentioned previously, it’s possible to be in a world of hurt with both issues – an abscessed tooth and a sinus infection.

Call Summer Dental – Kids|Adults|Braces is you have pain in your upper jaw and lower sinus area. An abscessed tooth should never be ignored. If it’s a sinus infection, your doctor can help you. This is a situation where you need guidance from both your dental and medical care provider.

Take Care Of Your Toothbrush!

Las Vegas Dental Patients Take Care Of Your Toothbrush!

The common household toothbrush. Every home has at least one, and hopefully everyone is brushing their teeth after each meal. While cosmetic dentistry and a complete smile makeover seem to be all the rage these days, daily brushing is still the most important thing you can do for your oral health.

It has been said that each toothbrush can contain millions of bacteria. But don’t worry, those bacteria come from our mouths, which harbor equal amounts of bacteria. For a person with a healthy immune system, these bacteria pose no threat.

However, a few common sense tips might keep any unnecessary germs from affecting your toothbrush.

First, be sure to store your toothbrush as far away from the toilet as possible, and close the toilet lid before flushing. Each flush of the toilet releases a spray of bacteria into the air, so it’s best to just eliminate the spray.

Next, since bacteria like a moist environment, store your toothbrush upright and without a travel case so that it can dry completely between uses.

The American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every three to four months. Brushing and flossing are the key to good oral health, and doing both each day will keep Las Vegas dental patients’ risk for gun disease, cavities, and bad breath low.

Keep your smile bright by visiting Summer Dental – Kids|Adults|Braces regularly and practicing proper oral hygiene.

Dr. Touraj Habashi has been a dentist in the Las Vegas area since 2017. We can answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry procedures such as tooth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and clear braces.

Treatment For Stress-Induced Jaw Pain

Treatment For Stress Induced Jaw Pain In Las Vegas

Everyday troubles cause some individuals to respond by clenching their jaw or grinding their teeth.

Daily commuting, work problems, or an overpacked schedule are some common culprits.

Teeth grinding and jaw clenching can trigger or aggravate a painful condition called TMD or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. TMD is often mistakenly called ‘TMJ,’ the acronym for temporomandibular joint.

Your jaw is able to open and close thanks to many muscles and the intricate temporomandibular joints. These joints allow for strength and flexibility as you chew, speak, and yawn.

Damage to these important joints can lead to severe pain in the jaw, head, face and neck. Pain may be experienced on one or both sides.

TMD is an often misdiagnosed condition because facial pain can result from a variety of problems, not just damage to the temporomandibular joints. Sinus infections, tooth decay, and facial injuries can cause jaw pain. An accurate diagnosis is the first step in treating TMD.

We have been diagnosing and treating TMD since 2017, working with other specialists when required. If you are noticing clicking, popping, or discomfort in your jaw, call Summer Dental – Kids|Adults|Braces today for a diagnosis and treatment plan.

I am Touraj Habashi, and I am enthusiastic about providing high quality dentistry to the residents of Las Vegas and the greater Las Vegas area.

Your Famous Smile

Veneers in Las Vegas How do high-profile men and women possess brilliant white smiles that are always ready for the red carpet or a close-up? Do they avoid coffee? Not likely. Every tabloid is full of pictures of famous individuals holding Starbucks cups. Do they avoid tobacco? Some abstain, but unfortunately many actors and fashion models are smokers.

Many Famous Smiles Were Not Always Flawless

Not everyone with stunning teeth was born with them. (Sure, no one is born with teeth, but you know what I mean.) Many celebrities have stunningly beautiful smiles because they have procured cosmetic dentistry.

No Need To Go To Hollywood

Guess what? You can also have a smile like a supermodel or television news anchor. Doctor Habashi has been providing cosmetic dentistry, including cosmetic dental smile makeovers, for dental patients since 2017.

Lighten Up!

Tooth whitening is usually the least expensive cosmetic dental treatment. Tooth bleaching will quickly enhance your teeth and make you feel like smiling all the time.

Fix Those Chips

Porcelain veneers are extremely versatile because they repair many troubles including misshapen, broken, and discolored teeth. Teeth with eroded enamel can often be repaired with veneers. Preparing a tooth for a porcelain veneer is minimally invasive, as the latest veneers do not require the removal of healthy enamel. Another plus: veneers are typically less expensive than complete crowns.

VIP Treatment

Live Better With Dental Implants

dental implants Las vegasIll-fitting dentures can cause more problems for denture wearers than they solve. If you live with loose dentures, you probably regard them as a necessary evil. Though they certainly look better than a toothless mouth, they don’t always make eating and talking easy.

Missing Out on Life?

Unfortunately, many discouraged denture-wearers have stopped dining in restaurants or engaging in social activities because they are afraid their dentures will come loose.

Implant dental procedures are allowing former denture wearers to re-engage in life. Consider the advantages of implant anchored dentures:

  • They are stable because the implant is anchored in the bone.
  • Your denture is fixed, it will not move around in your mouth.
  • They prevent bone loss that can occur when teeth are removed.
  • They eliminate the necessity of regular denture relines.
  • They do not aggravate gums.
  • No denture adhesive is necessary.

Patients who have replaced their conventional dentures with implant over-dentures enthusiastically say that the dental implant cost was more than worth it.

Get Your Life Back

Do you want to eat normally again? What is the value of maintaining your facial shape? Can you put a price on confidence?
