Can sore gums cause sinus pains in the face?

Yes, possibly

Sinus_infections
Sore gums may be a sign of an infection. If the infection is with the upper gums, the infection may sometimes spread to the sinuses leading to a sinusitis associated with sinus pains in the face.

I have chronic sinusitis. I get sinus pain, face pain, teeth, gum, and jaw pain, severe dry eyes, but my nasal passage is bone dry. Suggestions for dryness?

Also consider

I agree with the other answers and suggest Spry nasal spray which has been helpful to some of my patients.

Had oral surgery 11/2011 to repair an OAF in right maxillary sinus-having repeat symptoms that come & go: gum drainage, ear & face sore...OAF recur???

Good chance

Maxilla
It sounds like the oroantral fistula has either reoccurred or more likely never healed properly in the first place. You should have it checked by the surgeon.

Dr. Bennett Werner answered:

Cat scratches, breathing problems, sinus pain, now really sore throat, what is the cause?

Many possibilities

Pharynx
The red herring here is your hx of cat scratches which raises the question of toxoplasmosis. But your other symptoms don't suggest that. I think it's unrelated. I suspect you have a viral pharyngitis but you need a throat culture to rule out Strep, or, if appropriate, a gram negative diplococcus (Neisserian species).

No sign of a present infection but after getting over a sinus infec. i'm still having intense sinus pain left side of face. Cause?

Blockage/discharge

Sinus_infections
If you have intense pain, that sinus might be blocked and depending on the type of anti-biotic and the course of treatment, the sinus infection might have not been fully treated. I suggest doing saline rinses (netti pot or ocean spray), warm compresses and decongestants like Mucinex D and if the pain persists, go see your doctor for evaluation.

Dr. Jan Lei Iwata answered:

Can sinus pain travel all over face including near the ears?

Sinusitis can do it

Pain
When the sinuses are inflamed, they can cause different things to occur: headache, plugged ears, stuffed nose, feeling like your teeth hurt. So yes, If the maxillary sinuses are inflamed, it could feel like it's near the ears, or inside the ears. If you're experiencing a high level of discomfort, see your doctor, so they can do a full head, ears, eyes, nose, throat examination, and give you more information about this.

Dr. Laura McMullen answered:

8 year old daughter woke up with sinus pain, sore throat, earache, congestion. What can I give her to treat the symptoms? She is extremely healthy, has never had sinus symptoms before. No fever yet.

There

There are a few things you can do to treat a cold caused by an upper respiratory virus. - Voice Rest - probably the best thing you can do for a sore throat and raspy voice. - Drink plenty of fluids and stay hydrated - Hot tea with honey and lemon - Chicken noodle soup - our grandmas were right! Research shows that chicken noodle soup is very helpful in treating a cold. - Or just a spoon-full of honey - honey has been shown to be as effective a cough suppressant as many over the counter medications - Inhale steam from a shower or cool mist from a vaporizer - Acetaminophen and/or ibuprofen can help with inflammation and throat, ear and sinus pain Symptoms from a cold virus should start to improve after a few days. If it does not, of if she gets worse or has any difficulty breathing, call her doctor. You should also call her doctor if the sore throat worsens (could be strep) or if her ear pain worsens (ear infection) or for any new fevers or rash.
