Can Left Maxillary Sinusitis Be Cured?
Good morning, I am at the same time patients with sinusitis swelling want to ask. I still don’t understand my illness. At the age of 10, I was diagnosed with sinusitis and had to be operated on, but I did not. Age 12th, I checked up and my sinuses have swollen, even from the doctor told me that if the surgery had to be broken, I still didn’t understand what sinusitis was like, why it had spread to the bone. And the age of 12 years at that time I only took bone scrapings, later said age 20 years with the left cheek next to the nose must be broken .. Please explain, thank you.
Hello Side! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Sinuses are air-filled cavities around the face that are connected to the nose. Humans have 4 pairs of sinuses, sinus etmoidalis, frontalis sinus, sinus sphenoidalis, and maxillary sinus. Sinusitis is inflammation and infection of the sinus lining. Left maxillary sinusitis means that the inflammation is located in the left maxillary sinus. Sinusitis often results from infections of the nose or infections of teeth (including cavities). Cavities and infected teeth can cause spread of infection to the maxillary sinus around the cheekbones.
In patients with sinusitis that persists for a long time (more than 12 weeks), surgery is usually needed surgery (surgery) to overcome it if other therapies are not successful in dealing with inflammation that occurs. After surgery, patients will usually show improvement in quick time. The method of surgery performed depends on the results of the ENT doctor's examination, to what extent the infection has occurred. Sinus surgeries are relatively safe and very rarely cause complications. Handling sinusitis must be done well because if left unchecked, infection in the sinus can spread to the brain and cause infection in the brain area. This can be very dangerous and can cause death. If you are still in doubt, you should ask the ENT doctor who is examining you further. Apart from surgery, you also need to pay attention to the cleanliness of your teeth. You should also see a dentist for further treatment if there are cavities. You also need to avoid exposure to secondhand smoke. Diving and flying using airplanes may make your pain worse. If you feel pain, you can warmly compress the left cheek.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
