In brief: Lower molar?

If this was a lower molar, the chance of it directly causing a sinus infection are highly unlikely.
If you have been fighting a chronic infection however, your resistance may be lowered and more prone to a different infection.

In brief: Not uncommon

The maxillary sinus may be accidentally opened during the tooth extraction and cause complication after tooth extraction.
See your dentist for evaluation, diagnosis and proper treatment.
