Toothache: Is the most common cause for orofacial pain. Sinus infection can cause a toothache — especially in the upper rear teeth, which are close to the sinuses. If you have a persistent jaw pain, first consult your dentist for an exam. The dentist needs to rule out dental causes for the pain, such as periodontal disease or dental abscesses/pulpitis.
