    This may sound like a dumb question but is it an upper tooth? A back tooth? If so it may be a sinus problem. If the tooth is also sensitive to hot or cold or sweets it is probably NOT your sinuses. You may also have a slightly uneven bite and may be hitting that tooth first when you close your teeth together. That can cause soreness too. Basically you need a good exam and an x-ray to rule out all possibilities.

    go to a doctor to get properly diagnosed with sinusitis or w/e and you will more than likely get anti biotics for it. in the mean time hold a piece of cotton wool soaked in clove oil on to the sore tooth and gum.
