I had an upper molar tooth extracted approx end of April this year that had become infected. Tooth extraction was very quick and easy. I was given antibiotics before extraction. However, since extraction I ve experienced aching going up to my nose which has given me a watering eye. I went back to dentist who told me that everything was fine and they also took an x-ray which showed all ok. They gave me antibiotics but I still got this ache/pain around the area of extraction to my nose which seem to affect my sinuses. Don t know where to go from here.
I advice u to take an ENT consult. u may be suffering with sinusitis which has gone worse after ur extraction. it sometimes happens as the root of the molar lies very close or into the sinus. do lots of steam inhalations would help
