Once the sinusitis is resolved, the lining of the sinus returns to normal & release of pressure leads to relief of pain in the teeth. ...Read more

Many possibilities: There are many reasons why you could have had more illness this past year. Some may be related to pure chance, while other reasons may be related to an increase to exposure to certain infections.

You could also have a "heavy bite" on these upper molars radiating to your sinus. Have a dentist equilibrate your bite. If it doesn't get better, see an ENT md (sinus) or a dentist (teeth). ...Read more

Sensitivity to drinking cold or hot beverages, or eating certain solids can isolate the problem to the mouth. Discoloration of a tooth with pain/numbness and sensitivity not responding to soft brushing and toothpase for sensitive teeth leans toward a cavity. Cold/congestion over 1 week with fever may suggest sinus issues. ...Read more
