Check fungus: It takes longer to get rid of fungal infection - start taking garlic supplement twice daily for a week and limonene few drops in water as gargle - post here if this worked otherwise you need to be evaluated.

Low Humidity: Gargle with good mouth wash twice daily. Make sure the humidity at home and work is above 50%. Zyrtec (cetirizine) 10 mg at night for 3 weeks will also help.

Could a toothache also cause you to have a sore throat at the same time?

Yes: But before any conclusions are made, it is prudent to understand that the causes of sore throat are many, and an advanced infection in only one of them, and probably low on the list of probability. You should have the toothache investigated, and probably consider the sore throat to be an independent problem.
