Lucyswan, it is definitely possible that it’s due to the sinusitis. Sinusitis is often the cause of unnecessary dental procedures.
If it hasn’t cleared up by the time you receive this reply (sorry I took so long – I’ve been sick for the last week. My specialist physician wanted to put me in hospital, but guess who’s afraid of hospitals? :-)), you will probably have to take a course of antibiotics. The trick is to find out whether it is just an infection or if there is an underlying allergy. If there really is no underlying infection, you will have to go for a limited scan of the sinuses to find out if there is no anatomical defect like a polyp, a skew nasal septum, etc. If it sounds like there is an underlying allergy, you will have to start taking preventative medicines – a nasal spray with or without an antihistamine. Good luck.
