In brief: Endodontist

Sinusitis tends to mimic tooth pain in upper bicuspids and molars.
However, there are nuances that endodontists see every day to quickly differentiate sinusitis tooth pain from pulpal tooth pain. Pressure in the left temple is somewhat different than pain radiating to the temple. I would see a well respected endodontist to get a proper diagnosis and necessary treatment!

In brief: Sinus or tooth?

How was the diagnosis of sinusitis made? You need an xray to diagnose sinusitis accurately.
Sometimes with infection of an upper molar or premolar, your primary symptoms can be cheek pain, jaw pain and headache. Check with your dentist to make sure it's not a tooth problem.

In brief: Dentist and/or MD

Don't rule out denatl problem too quickly, when jaw pain is present it can ofter be from teeth and because of proximity to sinus and the temple region, tooth probs can cause symptoms in those areas.
See your dentist and your physician if needed.
