The presence of the primary focus of inflammation

Among the clinical manifestations of odontogenic sinusitis should be made especially one .  It is the presence of the patient's tooth, one that has become a source of proliferation of bacteria .  Most often the problematic tooth becomes upper molar (fourth, fifth or sixth molars) .  Even in the case where the tooth was removed some time ago, it still can cause the development of sinusitis .  The lack of a tooth does not mean that there can be no later sinusitis .  In most cases, there is a bad tooth .  The first complaint of patients is pain in the problematic tooth .  In marked inflammation may appear swollen cheeks, the skin at the site of the projections of the tooth becomes congested .  At this stage of the disease should not be afraid to go to the doctor, take the treatment on their own at home, as the inflammatory process will spread further and lead to complications .  It should be noted several distinctive features of the flow of odontogenic sinusitis:

As a result of inflammation in the maxillary sinus appears nasal congestion. A characteristic feature is the presence of purulent nasal discharge, which have a specific odor. Odor may be from the mouth, so the symptoms should be paid attention. Odor due to the fact that odontogenic sinusitis is caused by bacteria that can develop in the absence of oxygen (anaerobic bacterial species). It is also the cause of the odor is the spread of the inflammatory process in the bone tissue and its destruction.

   nose will mucopurulent, and in the future, when the process is distributed in the sinus cavity with the development of purulent inflammation, purulent discharge becomes.

During the inspection of the projection of the paranasal sinuses, that is, its front wall, there is a sharp pain. Fabrics lower eyelid and suborbital area will be somewhat swollen. In chronic form of odontogenic sinusitis complain of malaise, weakness and pronounced subfebrile body temperature and the appearance of the morning muco-purulent discharge from the nose on the affected side.

Removing acute inflammation

The process of acute inflammation of the sinuses can not pass on their own, if the cause of the disease is the bacterial flora. In this situation, you must go through a complex treatment, which should include the following component parts:

  • antibacterial and sulfa drugs
  • the development of the temperature of the reaction appoint antipyretics
  • vasoconstrictors
  • complete multivitamin preparations

As a therapeutic method can be recommended to wash the sinuses. The main aim of therapeutic measures should be to prevent the progression of the acute inflammatory process, and improve drainage from the sinus contents. Nasal lavage procedure contributes to the effective elimination of the phenomena of inflammation. There is a cleaning sinuses of mucus from the biologically active substances that can maintain inflammation. Positive effect was observed in the case where mucus accumulates as a thick and viscous secretion. This secret should be washed with special antiseptic or antibacterial agents that will improve its outflow.

In modern conditions the wash procedure can be performed even at home. To this end, a special system for nasal shower, which is convenient, efficient, to reduce the length of stay in hospital (the length of stay is reduced by 30%). This system is available to pregnant women and children, which is an advantage, if there is no allergic complications. During the procedure, nasal douche is not only the removal of stagnant content, as well as the simultaneous washing of the mucosa and their impact on the drug. If the inflammation is caused by a viral infection, it may take its own without special treatment, the symptoms of the disease subside gradually.
