Sinus tooth pain actually is more common than you think.  
Chronic rhinosinusitis is the most common medical condition
in the US, affecting some 33.7 million people, according to a
2014 study from the University of Mons in Belgium. Of these
millions with sinusitis, anywhere from 5% up to 40% f them
can experience sinus related tooth pain. That means up to 13
million people could have tooth aches cause by sinusitis.

Why is this suddenly interesting? Because I woke up with
such a tooth pain recently. I take care of my teeth, never
missing regular 6 month cleanings and cleaning thoroughly
every day, so it was unlikely to be decay that caused the
tooth ache. My dentist confirmed this. The other possible
cause of the pain was grinding my teeth. That possibility too
was eliminated.

But I had been experiencing a clogged sinuses during the
week.  After some detective work, I discovered two
remarkable studies that pointed to a simple remedy to help
alleviate the pain --- humming.

Now that's interesting. The pain happeded to come during a
week when I was an empty nester, the family gone for a visit
to relatives while I was stuck finishing a project.  That week
was hard emotionally but it also affected my health in
unexpected ways. For one thing, with no one elese around, I
talked less. I also did less singing and humming, something I
usually do as I putter around the house.  I always hum
when I cook. But when I was alone, I cooked in silence.

Soon enough, the tooth pain started. Can humming really
have been responsible fro keeping my sinuses clear and my
teeth pain-free?


Scientists Discover the Power of Humming to Clear Your
Sinuses































In 2002, scientists from Sweden discovered that humming
increases the amount of nitrous oxide in your sinuses. That's
important because nitrous oxide is a gas that expands and
dilates the blood vessels, allowing greater flow. It also
dilates the air passages, allowing you to breathe more freely.

The study, from Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm, observed
that nitrous oxide spike 15 times higher when you hum as
you exhale.


The increase in nitrous oxide helps alleviate obstruction of
the sinus ostium, which is a critical early step in the start of  
sinusitis.  

You may know nitrous oxide from another context. It is the
laughing gas given in some dental offices to relax patients.
Contrary to popular opinion, the gas actually does not block
the pain receptors but the deep relaxation it induces makes it
easier to not react to the pain.



Two years later, the same team confirmed its landmark
finding that humming during exhalation does in deed
increase the amount of nitrous oxide due to rapid gas
exchange in the paranasal sinuses.





Where Have We Heard This Before?


The act of breathing in through the nose and making a
sound as you exhale is a common part of certain yoga deep
breathing practices.



In many deep breathing practices, you are encouraged to
say "Hummm" as you exhale. The practice focuses your mind
ob your breath and calms you, allowing you to filter out
distractions.

This type of practice, we now know, also releases nitric
oxide, which, causes a chemical relaxation of the inner layer
of your blood vessels, called the endothelium.

Thus, incorporating a daily practice of humming as you
exhale benefits your body globally since your blood vessels
exist everywhere in your body.


Other Ways to Soothe Your Sinuses That Complement
Humming


In addition to humming, I also found it helpful to breathe in
the vapors from a hot cup of thyme tea as I hummed. The
thyme contains the active ingredient "thymol" which is an
anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent.

This will help to kill any bacteria that may reside in your
nasal passages. I found that breathing in the thyme and
humming made the pain in my tooth decrease immediately.
