CT SCAN: image

Hello! I'm curious as to why my ENT would order tooth extraction as a solution to my Chronic Sinusitis.

February 2019, I begun to smell foul odor that only I can smell coming from "inside" my nose.

October 2019, a tooth abcsess begun to form outside my gum, my dentist performed a root canal to get rid of the infection.

November 2019, I went to an ENT had gotten a CT Scan and was told that even if my tooth underwent a root canal I still need to get it extracted and then get my right maxillary sinus "drained".

I thought my tooth would be clear of infection, and I'm just wondering why it still need to be pulled.
