Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

I understand you are facing lot of dental problems. Listerine and peroxide help in prophylaxis or maintenance of oral hygiene. If you are having pain with your teeth, there is a possibility that you have decayed teeth which needs to be treated. Cavity also needs to be taken care of. If the cavity is not deep, filling can be done. Meanwhile you need to see an ENT to check your sinuses for infection.

Take Care

Hello jazzy,
The toothache is due to the dental caries of the involved tooth.
I would suggest you to get it restored or root canal treated depending on the severity of decay.
Maintain good oral hygiene .
Take complete course of antibiotics too.
Get a routine dental check up in every 6 months.
uSE soft interdental toothbrush and dental floss to clean your teeth.
Rinse your mouth after every meals.
Use chlorhexidine mouthrinse to gargle.
Take care.

It seems that your sinus is infected. The treatment for sinus infection is to open and hydrate the sinus. Drink plenty of fluids and take adequate rest. Water helps in lubricating the mucous membrane.Ginger tea, fruit juice, and hot tea with honey and lemon may all be helpful. Inhale steam two to four times daily. A nasal wash can be helpful for removing mucous from the nose. If the problem still persists then it is advised to visit a dentist and get an Xray done

HI THERE
YOUR CAVITY ON LEFT SIDE MUST HAVE REACHED UP TO PULP, THAT IS WHY ITS PAINING.YOU HAVE TO DO RADIO GRAPH OF LEFT SIDE TO CHECK HOW DEEP IT IS. AS U HAVE MENTIONED APPLYING PRESSURE HELPS TO RELIEVE PAIN , YOUR CASE CAN BE OF TFO (TRAUMA FROM OCCLUSION). SINUS TROUBLE CAN ENHANCE PAIN. VISIT A DENTIST . HE WILL PRESCRIBE U ANTIBIOTICS ANALGESICS AND MAY ADVISED RADIO GRAPH AND CUSPAL REDUCTION. KEEP RINSING WITH MOUTHWASH.
TAKE CARE.

Hello there ,

Thanks for writing your query,

Tooth ache indicates bacterial decay or infection in the tooth that involves the exposed tooth nerve tissues .

such infected tooth needs to be treated by a root canal procedure so please consider getting the treatment done by consulting a dentist.

you may need an OPG radiographic examination done for your teeth to confirm the spread of infection or to rule out the exact cause of the pain.

Sinus infection needs to be treated by medication so please get the examination done.


i hope this helps ,

take care.
