Can Dental Photographs Detect The Presence Of Sinuses?
Doctor, it’s been a year since I have a headache. And lately the intensity is increasingly frequent and torture. I have already been treated by several neurologists and have even been treated for this headache, but it has not improved. He said my sinus 22 infection. I was given antibiotics for a week, the medicine ran out but it did not improve. For a long time I also went to the dentist, photographed my teeth, even though it felt painful but the doctor said my teeth were good. I also had time to ask for advice whether I should check into the ENT or not related to my sinus problems, the dentist said there was no need, because he said if there is a sinus will be seen with dental x-rays. And he says, based on dental photos, my teeth are fine. Is it true that dental photos can detect the presence of sinus or not? So, according to the doctor, should I go to an ENT specialist or not? Thank you for the answer.
A good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Sinusitis condition is an inflammatory condition in the area of the bone cavity on the face. This usually occurs due to inflammation of the respiratory tract which can then cause a buildup of fluid or pus in the sinuses. The location of the sinuses in the face area is in the area around the cheeks, nose, middle part of the head, and the head area of the forehead area.
For symptoms that are felt usually are
Facial pain and headache
You want a yellow green color
Swollen eye area
To make sure a physical examination is done by the doctor by looking at and pressing the area around the face and better still done with a photo where the photo of the tooth in general will only see the area around the face of the cheek but for the sinus frontal area (forehead), the middle of the head or around the nose not obvious. So it is better if the symptoms are still felt can consult your condition to the doctor especially the ENT specialist.
Some things to relieve are
Drink warm water
Remove snot or fluid from the nose
Avoid re-siphoning the liquid
