Sinusitis is caused by an inflamed membrane which lines the sinus cavities. This inflammation can be caused by virus, bacteria or fungus or by allergens like smoke, dust and pollen. Inflammation in the lining of the maxillary sinus cavity can cause jaw pain sinus disease. Not being able to smile or laugh or even speak properly is so terrible.
Jaw pain sinus disease can also occur due to lack of proper oral hygiene. Our jaws and teeth are connected to the maxillary sinus cavity via the alveolar process which is ‘U’ shaped. If a person doesn't take good care of his/ her teeth and gums there is bacterial growth in the teeth and gums. These bacteria may spread to the maxillary sinus cavity causing sinusitis. It is recommended that a person should brush twice a day, floss regularly and visit a dentist periodically.
Jaw pain sinus disease is easy to diagnosis as it is normally accompanied with other symptoms of sinusitis like a runny nose, headache mild fever and facial pain. The cheekbones become very tender and are extremely painful if touched.
Jaw pain sinus is often confused with normal dental pain though both of them are very different. Jaw pain sinus can occur only in the upper part of the jaws because only those are associated with the maxillary sinus cavity. Dental pain can occur in any part of the jaws. Jaw pain caused by sinus is very spontaneous unlike dental pain which is continuous. Swollen gums are also associated with jaw pain sinus disease
Jaw pain sinus can be treated just like any other sinus. It can be treated with over the counter medication or antibiotics. Only some extreme cases of sinus require surgery. In this case the infected mucous from the maxillary cavity is removed surgically.
Lack of oral hygiene is not the only cause of jaw pain sinus. The maxillary sinus can also get affected if the other cavities are infected. Infection due to bacteria, virus or fungi and allergies can also cause jaw pain.
Jaw pain sinus disease can be prevented by proper oral hygiene and refraining from allergens like smoke and pollen.
