Non-odontogenic Sinonasal-induced Toothache; a Communication Bridge Between Dentistry and Otolaryngology

Abstract


The common innervation by maxillary division V2 of the tri-geminal nerve and anatomical proximity of maxillary teeth, maxil-lary sinuses and the anterior two-thirds of the nose can sometimes confuse clinicians from different disciplines for the correct diag-nosis of pain etiology in these areas. More specifically, differentia-tion of odontogenic pain, particularly odontogenic pain associated with maxillary teeth, from the pain associated with maxillary sinus problems (such as sinusitis) and nasal cavity problems (such as nasal vestibulitis) is sometimes misinterpreted by clinicians in the field of otolaryngology as well as dentistry.
