I have an ongoing sinus infection and was wondering if my tooth that needs to be pulled could be causing it?
If the infected tooth which needs to be pulled is an upper back tooth then yes it is very likely that it could be affecting your sinus. Most of the time removing the bad tooth will resolve the issue but if it does not you may need to see an ear, nose, throat physician (ent) to resolve the lingering sinus infection. I am located in Fort Lauderdale and would be happy to give you a complimentary exam to let you know if it is a tooth related issue. Please call my office at (954) 522-3228 to set up an appointment.
Hope this helps,
