In brief: Possibly
If inflammation and fluid in the sinuses are the cause of the tooth pain, then anything which relieves these will help with the tooth pain.
If the netipot treatment seems to help, then, yes. If not, then see your md.

In brief: Possibly
Netipot treatments can be helpful in relieving some forms of sinus irritation, but any sinus irritation (of the maxillary sinuses) can cause tooth pain.
So the effectiveness of netipot treatments will depend on why your sinuses are problematic and if they are the cause of the tooth pain. Best is to consult your dentist and ENT physician and get their input.

In brief: Maybe
Netipots can be very effective for rinsing the sinuses.
If you are having tooth pain, this might be a full blown infection and a netipot by itself may not treat it. You may need a course of antibiotics and possibly some steroids.
