Can a decayed tooth cause a sinus infection?
Q. Can a decayed tooth cause a sinus infection? i have been told by my dentist that one of my lower molar has slight decay, and on the same side of my face my nostril secretes yellow mucous… could there be a link?
A. It is highly unlikely a lower tooth will cause a problem with your upper sinus however an upper tooth could cause the problem. Please go back and see your dentist nd have your top teeth examined and also go see your doctor.
