How Allergies can Affect your Dental Health
Allergy season is upon us and along with a running nose, sneezing and watery eyes, allergies can affect your teeth and mouth:
- A well known allergy symptoms is sinus pain; the maxillary sinuses are actually located near our upper molars which can cause pain in our teeth.
- It’s important to drink water to help alleviate a dry mouth which can be another allergy symptom.
- Allergy suffers may also experience a sore throat which is caused by a postnasal drip. A sore throat may cause bad breath, so it’s important to follow your oral care routine.
It’s important to listen to your body. Not sure if you have a dental infection or allergy symptoms? Call our office to set up an appointment to be sure.
