I have pain in my tooth, on the top the second tooth from my wisdom tooth that was removed a while ago. I have gone to the dentist who took x-rays and saw no cavity. The dentist is saying that it is a sinus problem and recommended Mortin 800 mg. Why would he give me a prescription if he has no idea what is wrong. Would it be better if I would go to a doctor to see if something else is wrong, or is the dentist correct in telling me that it could be my sinuses. ...Visitor from PA
Yes, this could very well be a sinus condition, especially if there was no evidence of a cavity.
If you have a history of a sinus condition, or have been congested lately, you should see an MD who would decide whether to put you on antibiotics and antihistamines.
