Tooth pulled, hole in sinus cavity now
Help, almost a month ago I had a tooth pulled (this is one I had a root canal done a few years back and a hole was punched into my sinus cavity then too, but this time it is different) and now there is a hole from the inside of my mouth into my sinus cavity. I can even blow air thru there! The oral surgeons office is waiting to see if it closes up on it's own. I think it is getting larger! I go to the office next Tuesday.
This is driving me crazy. At night when I sleep air goes into my mouth when I breathe thru my nose and I wake up with a "dry mouth". Every hour I'm up drinking water to hydrate my mouth. The hole "bubbles" when I talk or blow my nose. Very irritating.
I ate oatmeal and some got stuck in the hole and when I blew my nose, it came out there.
This is driving me nuts. Oral surgeons office says to give it time, well I'm out of patience and not happy.
Anyone have this happen and what was the result?
