If you are experiencing tooth pain with the change of seasons, it could be your allergies.
The Effect of Sinus on Tooth Pain & Dry Mouth
People can be allergic to air-born allergens that are surrounding their homes, offices and outdoor spaces. If you have a pet that sheds at the change of seasons, this may affect your sinuses as well.
Allergens cause the maxillary sinuses to produce an abundance of mucus to clear the body of allergies. Although this natural process can be good for your body, the sinuses can swell and cause severe pain in the roots of your upper teeth. Infection-like symptoms can be experienced once this sinus pressure builds up and pushes into the already sensitive upper molar area.
In addition to the tooth pain caused by sinus pressure on your teeth, you can also suffer dry mouth as a result of allergens. Dry mouth is known to rob the mouth of the cleansing benefits of natural saliva.
Clarify the cause of Your Tooth Pain
You simply cannot take pain for granted. Most times, experiencing pain is a signal that something is wrong. Many times, if you allow confusion of what is causing your tooth pain or dry mouth, you may be overlapping the real issue; a more serious issue.
