Wisdom Tooth in Sinus Cavity

I had 3 of my 4 wisdom teeth removed in August of 2012, ( he left one in because the oral surgeon thought it would be beneficial to remove the tooth in front that needed a root canal in hopes that the wisdom tooth would move down in it's place) years have passed and since then I have constantly had sinus, tension and migraines along with jaw pain and constant aches for over 2 years now. come to find out my new dentist took x-rays and discovered my wisdom tooth that was left in is now sideways in my SINUS CAVITY. would surgery be a good option to remove this and if so, what does the surgery intake? would they need to cut from the roof of my mouth or how would that work? how long is recovery time? I've gone back to the oral surgeon twice about this and both times he says it's just the muscles acting up. well, I'm 21 and I'm sick of having to deal with headaches EVERY DAY. is there anything that could be done for this? I live in Orlando, FL
