Possible: Tooth pain can radiate up the sides of the face to the head causing pain. However, there are numerous causes of headaches and tooth pain is low on the list. Please see a dentist and your md.

Possibly: I am not sure what do you mean by "bad teeth" but extensive dental decay, infection in the teeth or gums as well as your jaws can be a source of headaches. Consult your dentist and possibly an orofacial pain dentist for a comprehensive evaluation.

Possibly: Untreated decayed teeth and/or periodontal disease are just two of the many things that can cause headaches. The only way this can be determined is for someone to examine you. I would set up appointments with both your dentist and your md to evaluate and treat whatever is going on.
