Question:
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

Answer:
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.
