Due To A Tooth Abscess?
Good afternoon ,
Hello Indra Jaya, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Maybe you mean sinusitis, huh? Well, sinusitis itself is an infection in the sinuses or cavities that are normally filled with air (located around the nose and in the cavity of the head) which is usually caused by viruses or bacteria. Around the nasal cavity there are 4 sinuses,
maxillary sinus (located on the cheek) ethmoid sinus (located near the eye) frontal sinus (located on the forehead) sphenoid sinus (located behind the forehead) All of these sinuses have the potential for infection, but the most frequent and most easily infected are the maxillary sinuses located on the cheeks, where the base of the sinus is closest to the root of the tooth. So that if the root of the tooth is problematic, the infection can easily spread to the sinuses, the sinuses that are infected due to dental problems are called dentogen sinusitis.
The initial cause is indeed from an infected tooth, as a result of an untreated and untreated tooth infection, the infection will spread to the tissues around the aching tooth, and if it continues untreated, the infection will affect the nerves and can infect the sinuses. Symptoms such as headache, especially when the head is lowered, fever, nasal congestion and bad breath will be complained of.
What you need to do right now is take good care of your teeth, keep brushing your teeth at least 2x a day, drink lots of water at least 2L to keep your body hydrated and maintain oral hygiene, control for treatment of abscesses, and immediately check with the dentist if complaining of a toothache or anything that irritates your teeth and gums.
Hopefully answering your question, thank you
