Can dental fillings cause sinus infections?

Hi,
For 40 years I have lived with sinus infections that never go away. I have tried everything, and no one can tell me the cause. Is it possible for dental fillings to cause other problems?
Thanks

No, fillings cannot cause sinus problems. However, untreated tooth abscesses can disturb the sinus and cause symptoms in the sinus. I have seen this may times.

Hi
I am Dr. Uman . Filling should not cause sinus. There may be little chance of infection but in modern clinics this is almost impossible.

It is a hard diganosis to make. First, you should have all the back teeth on that side tested for vitality. This is done by a pulp tester. Then make sure good x-rays of the root tips are there. Have all the pockets measured around the teeth to make sure there are no profound gum problems. If all these appear normal, it is not the teeth.

Still possible is chronic muscle spasm radiating to the sinuses.

But many, many people have chronic sinus problems without any dental cause. Maybe an ENT can do a culture of your sinuses. The maxillary sinus is not well designed in humans and often collects liquids, leading to infections.
