In brief: Connected

when having bad sinus infection ,the upper back teeth gets very sensitive to changes of temperature and pressure as there roots are in very close proximity to the floor of that infected sinus ,it well all resolve as soon as sinus infection goes away,just keep a good oral hygiene and take your Ned's for the sinus infection and all well be good;)

In brief: Very common

also called a dental sinus.
Very common when the roots of the upper molar teeth are in close proximity with the sinus area. Removing the dental and gum infection is the only successful treatment for a dental sinus. See your dentist for consultation and treatment.
