I had dental pain on left upper jaw and upper teethes. My dentist said it is not dental. He said it is due to sinus. I never had sinus before. I am 65. I had severe cold recently. The pain occurred during and before this cold. Tell me what may be the cause and remedy.

Please do steam inhalation and put one capsule of Karvol Plus in the boiling water when u are taking steam
It is true that dental pain can occur coz of sinus problem. Decayed teeth or periodontal problems may cause pain too. Get a regular checkup with x-rays to rule out the options. Then, if it is coz of sinus, take medicines for cold. Ul be fine once u get cured of cold.
You have two options: get a second opinion ( consult another dentist to confirm if the pain is not of dental origion. Second if . First bit works , consult a general physician , he will most probably advice you to get a PNS View ( kind of x ray radiograph) to diagnose the problem. Hope it worked.
Go for opg x ray
