In brief: Infection to sinus

Upper molar teeth protrude into the sinus.
When you have an abscess of one of these teeth it can spread to the sinus which will complicate the treatment of the abscess.

In brief: Sinus Involvement

When endodontic infections effect the upper posterior teeth there may be a response by the sinus found above those teeth.
This can be a mild or severe response (usually visible on cbct type x-ray) treatment of the endodontic infection usually eliminates the sinus response but sometimes it doesn't. If persistent sinus involvement occurs it is advisable to seek the care of an ENT md.
