  2. 2. Fundamentally situated in the skull, human sinus cavities arethe passageways mainly found in the areas around the face.Also known as paranasal sinuses, they are hollow, irregularair cavities which sit adjacent to and are attached to the noseand nasal passageways.Protection and lowering of the weight of the skull are theprincipal tasks of these cavities and the human voice alsoresonates here.Both ENTs and dentists should thoroughly know the anatomyof sinus cavities to properly handle the infection thatfrequently spreads here.Infection in the frontal or ethmoid sinuses can lead tomeningitis.Images of the facial sinus cavities present its basic anatomy,which includes four pairs of sinuses specifically...• Frontal sinuses = Found between the outer and innertables of the frontal bone• Maxillary sinuses = An empty cavity that occupies ahuge part of the maxilla• Ethmoid sinuses = Which fills up a big part of theethmoidal labyrinth behind the eyes• Sphenoid sinuses = Found in the sphenoid bone, butwhich may stretch to the wings of the sphenoid, thepterygoid plates and the clinoid processesWhen determining x-rays, CT scans or MRIs of sinusconditions, as well as infection, sinus cavities diagram arevery helpful. www.sinusinfectionrelief.com
  3. 3. For dentists, understanding the maxillary sinus is essentialsince the apices of the teeth extends into the maxillarycavity.Removal of wisdom teeth (or "wisdome teeth" as it isfrequently misspelled) and root canal specifically of the firstmolar may result in the progression of apical abscess orperiodontal disease, which may bring about acute maxillarysinusitis.The symptoms of a sinus infection will vary, relying on thesinus cavity affected and the type of infection.Acute sinusitisEthmoid sinusitis• Nasal clogging with mucopurulent discharge• Post nasal drip, together with a sore throat• Soreness or strain around the inner corner of the eye ordown one side of the nose• Headache in the temple, or around and behind the eye• Soreness or stress symptoms become more intensewhen coughing, forcing, or lying on the back, but improveswhen the head is vertical• FeverMaxillary sinusitis• Pain around the cheekbone, around or below the eye, orsurrounding the upper teeth• Pain or pressure on one side or both sides of the face• Tender, red, or swollen cheekbone www.sinusinfectionrelief.com
  4. 4. • Soreness and stress symptoms deteriorate with the headin vertical position and bending forward, but improves whenlying down• Nasal discharge or postnasal drip (may be accompaniedby sore throat)• FeverFrontal sinusitis• Severe headaches in the forehead• Fever• Discomfort worsens while lying down but improves whenthe head is vertical• Nasal discharge or postnasal drip (maybe coupled withsore throat)Sphenoid sinusitis• Deep throbbing headache with pain centred on the topand the back of the head, the whole forehead, and behindthe eye• Fever• Pain worsens when lying on the back or bending forward• Double vision or vision disruptions may develop if strainruns into the brain• Nasal discharge or postnasal drip (may be accompaniedby sore throat)Chronic sinusitisEthmoid sinusitis• Chronic mucopurulent nasal discharge, blockage, and www.sinusinfectionrelief.com
  5. 5. low-grade soreness especially over the bridge of the nose• Discomfort gets worse late in the morning or when usingeyeglasses• Chronic sore throat• Chronic bad breathMaxillary sinusitis• Pain or stress under the eye• Chronic toothache or heightened sensitivity in the tooth• Pain increases with colds, flu, or allergies• There is tremendous soreness all through the day• Greater rounds of coughing at nightFrontal sinusitis• Unrelenting, low-grade headache in the forehead• Background of trauma or damage to the sinus area• Chronic postnasal drip (may be accompanied by sorethroat and bad breath)Sphenoid sinusitis• Low-grade general headache• Chronic postnasal drip (may be together with sore throatand bad breath)It will be simpler to find the infection and reduce itspropagation to the other parts of the head when a doctorwholly understands the anatomy of the sinus cavities. www.sinusinfectionrelief.com
