However, this may not be the only reason. Sometimes, people may also experience a severe ache in their teeth whilst suffering from a cold and their sinuses are congested. Note that the sinus floor is situated directly above the teeth so one can experience pain in this area when they have a cold.  Dr Meinecke, a spokesperson for the Academy of General Dentistry says that pain will be experienced in the upper teeth (behind the eye), if a person’s sinuses are full.
