While toothaches and sensitivity could occur for multiple reasons, including sinus problems, one that persists for more than a day could be a sign of a deeper problem. For example, a persistent toothache could be caused by the presence of a cavity, the early stages of a dental infection, or as a result of weakened tooth structure due to teeth grinding while asleep.
