Sinus and dental implants
I would like to know if there is any relationship between the sinusitis and a dental implant. I had a dental implant done a couple months ago and it seems that my sinusitis hit me more often than before.
Do you have any recommendation.
They should be unrelated unless the implant is actually in the sinus cavity, which should not occur.
