Sinus pain: If upper tooth pain is due to a maxillary sinus infection, then a Neti Pot may be helpful in treating the underlying reason for the pain. It may not be enough by itself, however; sometimes nasal steroids, antihistamines, or antibiotics are also needed.

Sinuses: If your sinuses are inflamed and you have fluid in them, then the roots of your teeth which protrude into that sinus space may be affected. If the netipot treatment helps clear the sinuses, then you are helping get rid of the stimulus on the roots of the teeth.

Continued: Think of taking a balloon and filling it with cold water. Poke your fingers into it and they will feel the cold. Even if they are not in the water, they feel the cold. Same with the roots of the teeth. Hope this helps.

Some Possibilities: Have you been to your dentist on a regular basis? If so, it maybe a habit of clenching, or grinding, your teeth together. Is it worse when you wake up? No matter what, have your dentist take a look.
