No: Mild tricuspid and mitral valve regurgitation are benign conditions unless it get infected.Then we call it as valve endocarditis.It can be deadly unless treated.

Probably not: Mild regurgitation of valves is usually not a problem. You will need to be followed routinely by your doctor. Sometimes these leaks can worsen over time. In that case you may need surgery at some point. It will also be important to take antibiotics before any procedure including dental.
