Q.

Dental or Sinus

The area behind the hole where my bottom wisdom tooth use to be (years ago) gets very sore at times, almost like something like a tooth needs to come out there, it infects my cheekbone, ear, neck and makes my head feel like needles and pins on the one side. During this I have a constant sinus drip. At its worst I have no idea where the pain originates from, when it start clearing up the place I explained at first takes the longest to heal. Must I go to a dentist or doctor? And if I do must I go while infected?

first see a dentist- it does not have to be while the infection is present
