Severely dropped sinus

I've been suffering with recurring sinusitis for many years now - every cold I get seems to develop until this, and I've recently begun taking antibiotics for a relatively bad case of it. My doctor has prescribed me a new nasal spray, and told me she will refer me to ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat clinic) if this does not work. Anyway, I woke up this morning with a throbbing toothache, so bad that I made an emergency dentist appointment. I was concerned that it could be related to my sinus issues, so I mentioned this to my dentist.

After x-raying my teeth, my dentist seemed really shocked and told me she knows why I've been having so many issues with my sinuses. My maxillary sinus on my left cheek has totally dropped down to my teeth (where I had one taken out years ago), and is now obscuring the x-ray of the roots of at least 3 other teeth in my cheek. She said that it's extremely rare and I should make an appointment with ENT immediately, which is what I've done.

I'm really confused by this though. I've been Googling about it, and I've found lots of people mentioning it when it 'fills' the hole where the tooth - but doesn't mention anything about it being so bad that is obscures even more teeth. Can someone shed some light on this, so I know what might entail at ENT? She said surgery is going to be likely, but I'm just really confused.
