To treat sinus infection it needs time. When it spreads on bone and tooth, it needs even more time. Sometimes surgery is needed.

I would suggest use of klindamicin as antimicrobial drug of choice and consider surgical exploration of that small part of gum. Probiotics should be used too for better gut flora.

Use antispetic fluids to keep your mouth more helthier enviorment.

All the best.
