Continuous sinus congestion. Tried different antibiotics. Wheezing while exhaling. Could this be due to dental implants?

I m a 44 y/o male, and I ve had sinus congestion for over three months now. Tried three different antibiotics , and thought the last bout had defeated the mess. However, about a week ago, I began to develop congestion in my upper chest, forcing me to cough when I laugh or talk too much. There is also a wheezing sound when I exhale deeply. Additionally, I received dental implants for my two top front teeth about five months ago. Not sure if that has anything to do with it or not. Oh yeah, I had laminate flooring placed in my entire house about the same time as my teeth being extracted and dental implants installed. I ve never had an issue with sinus infections prior to this.

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you might have some allergy to laminated flooring giving you these problems.
Take antihistamine like Cetrizine for few days.
If these problems are due to allergy you will feel better.
If there is no improvement then go for blood work and x-ray chest to rule out any infection.
Ok and bye.
