It may be sinusitis.: Common after upper respiratory infections and can cause tooth/jaw pain.

Needs to be seen: Your dental\oral problems may or may not be related to the cold. We can't make any assumptions without personally seeing you for an evaluation. When was you last dental check-up? See your dentist.

Hard to say: Could be a sinus infection. But to be safe, i would get in and see a md/do first, then you may need to see a dentist.

Both sides = sinus: Please... If this pain issue has occurred right after a cold and it is seemingly coming from all areas of your upper left right and center teeth. And you didn't have any previous pre-cold issues: "if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck..." it is a sinus issue. Take a decongestant, an aleve (naproxen) etc. And if necessary get an rx from an md.
