possible the crown got sucked up into my sinuses?

User Profile
I was at the dentist being fitted for a mouth full of crowns. One of the crown got loose and went down my throat and it felt as though it got stuck on the left sideof my throat. The doctor asked me to go in the bathroom and see if I could try to vomit the tooth back by sticking my fingers down my throat. I had no luck and I thought I had swallowed it. I'm back at my hotel now and my left sinus is hurting me, and I'm wondering is it possible that's the truth got sucked up into my sinuses when I was bent over and trying to vomit because I feel like there is somethings in my left sinus or could it just be the sensation from trying to vomit so hard?

Thank you for asking

You just had been out of the clinic. the doctor must have made sure of any foreign body left and a simple laryngoscope would have made things clear.

What can i say here. if you feel like some foreign body sensation, get to an otorhinolaryngologist and let them hve a look.

Good Luck
