Dental problems because blowing my nose?
by Nancy Halpin
Does this sound right - Dental problems because blowing my nose?
I had a sinus lift last month. I had implants done on the left side of my mouth and my dentist was able to just put the implants in. The right side, years later, has required a substantial sinus lift. It was a procedure that took almost two hours and my dentist called in an additional staff member to help out during the procedure.
Initial healing was fine, stitches fell out.
I have had these intermittent pains since then. I am afraid that in the morning I may have lightly blown my nose and caused a problem. Would light blowing do that?
The pain is more an aching deep inside. Last night I had pain in a crown three teeth in on the other side. I felt the pain every time I touched it with my tongue. This morning it is gone. Also I have developed a clicking in my jaw on the same side as the implant- also intermittent.
Should I go back to my dentist? Is she keeping something from me?
Would a light blowing of my nose have caused these dental problems?
