What Your Oral Surgeon Can Do When You Have Sinus Pain

Posted on 6/30/2017 by Clackamas Oral Surgery Office

Do you struggle with regular sinus pain? If so, then you may be relieved to know that there may be things that your oral surgeon can do to help. Not all oral surgeons are experts in helping rebuild your sinus cavity, but many of them can help.

Sometimes your teeth's roots are so deep, they extend into the sinus cavity, leading to pain. However, there are options that can alleviate that pain.

What Options You Have to Help Your Sinus Cavity

When you have a thin sinus cavity, then anything that affects your teeth can also affect your sinuses. Likewise, anything that affects your sinuses can also make your teeth sore. In this instance, what you can do is to add extra bone to your sinus cavity to help protect your mouth and sinuses from each other.

A sinus lift may be the perfect option for you in that case. What your oral surgeon will do is lift the floor of your sinus cavity, take a small sliver of donor bone (or other bone graft options) and slide it beneath the floor of your sinuses.

The bone you had will fuse with this new bone, and create a stronger floor of your sinuses. This often helps alleviate pain and leaves you feeling better than you did before the procedure, in a short period of time.

For more information on what options you may have to reduce or eliminate the sinus pain you regularly struggle with, contact our office today. They can look at what may be causing the issues, and offer you a few different options as to how you can correct the problem. A procedure that is simple for them to perform may be able to bring you a lifetime of sinus pain relief.
