Hello, dinamei_wibisono, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


Cavities and foul smelling mucus can be related. Cavities that are left untreated can lead to infection and cause inflammation of the sinuses (sinusitis). Sinus infections can cause symptoms such as nasal congestion, discharge that smells bad and is yellow / green in color, bad breath, headache, pain in the face (cheeks or forehead), fever, etc.


Get this problem checked by dentists and general practitioners. The dentist will examine your teeth, if there is a cavity it will be filled, if the tooth is infected then antibiotics will be given, or if it cannot be treated with antibiotics or the infection is widespread, it is possible to extract it. Treatment depends on the cause and severity. An infected tooth if not handled properly can spread and lead to diseases such as sinusitis, tooth abscess (a lump that is a collection of pus), to heart problems such as endocarditis (infection of the inner lining of the heart).


Green and smelly mucus apart from sinusitis can also be caused by ARI (upper respiratory tract infection). For that, check with your doctor to get the right therapy, especially if the complaint has lasted more than 7 days, there is a fever, or the complaint has recurred (intermittent).


The suggestions that I can give to reduce complaints and prevent worsening are drink lots of water, avoid foods that are too sweet / too hot / too cold, brush your teeth 2x / day, regularly check with the dentist at least every 6 months, get adequate rest, and immediately consult a doctor to prevent worsening.


That's all, hopefully it's useful.


Greetings, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
