Yes and No: A tooth that is erupting can cause some referred pain to your eye, ear, and can give you a headache. Dizziness is usually cause by an inner ear disturbance, and transient HBP could be from stress, but not directly from the tooth erupting. Please see your dentist regarding your wisdom tooth and have it extracted if it is impacted or there is a lack of space.

Of course: The bacteria present around an infected wisdom tooth may spread systemically. Chronic wisdom tooth infection has an impact on our general health and organ systems--the heart, kidneys, high BP, dizziness, eye pain and other organs. Wisdom teeth that cause problems should be extracted.
