Brief Answer: CT needs to be discussed with doctor Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Retention cyst in sinuses is usually due to blockage in the drainage of sinuses. A tooth can be a culprit but usually the presentation is different and dentigerous cysts instead of the typical retention cyst is the presentation. The diagnosis must have been made with a CT. If the CT shows blocked osteo-meatal complex area, the chances of problem in nose is more than the dental. Please discus with your doctor. Feel free to ask another query. Regards
