Sinus infection due to wisdom tooth issues?

I've been suffering from mild sinus symptoms on and off for the last 1 year. It seems to have coincided very well with my wisdom teeth erupting.

For some reason both my bottom wisdom teeth have had decay issues while erupting - the dentist said that food is getting stuck at a place where the toothbrush cannot reach and I have that horrible taste and smell near the tooth. It has coincided particularly well - I had issues for around 3-4 months when my left tooth was erupting. Then I was completely fine for 5 months where the decay had gone. THen my right tooth started coming out and again for the last 3 months or so its been horrible

So please do advise as to whether such a decay, which is caused by bacteria, can actually affect sinus health? Maybe the same bacteria can travel to the sinus cavity, or maybe reduce immunity in that area?
