The roots of all your top teeth go right up to your sinus cavity. Often times they actually protrude into this cavity. This is however normal and should cause no problems. If one of these teeth had an infection I could see how it could cause you serious sinus problems. Your dentist should be able to tell a lot from your x-rays.

I just had my wisdom teeth removed and when the Dr. removed one of the top teeth he actually opened a hole into my sinus cavity. This usually heals on it's own if you can refrain from blowing your nose, but it can cause a sinus infection. Hope the info. helps.
