Root canal treatments are always necessary to treat teeth that have been damaged all the way to their bases, but the presence of an infected or inflamed tooth does not mean that a person is immune to all other diseases at the same time. Our practice receives many calls from patients who have caught a cold, contracted a sinus infection, or begun to suffer from hay fever, and have questions about potential root canal sinus problems. This is the advice that we give them about scheduling root canal treatments.
Root Canal Sinus Problems
If you are congested or have a sinus infection, this should not prevent you from receiving dental care. If you feel that you will find it difficult to lie down for an hour while your dentist or endodontist works on your mouth, our office may discuss rescheduling the appointment. We always recommend speaking to your dentist or endodontist if you experience any kind of dental pain or issue, and you should not postpone your treatment out of fear of being congested.
At Precision Endodontics, we believe that all dental treatment should be painless and comfortable. We expect that your entire experience from the time you choose to make us a part of your dental team until the completion of your treatment will be smooth, painless and precise.
Our “make no compromises” philosophy places our practice in the top tier of endodontic practices, nationwide.
