Yes: Tooth pain in the lower jaw can radiate up the side of the head and can even affect your balance. See a dentist asap. The tooth most likely needs to be removed.
Dr. John Thaler

Yes: Your tooth is in your head and the pressure, infection, pain from the tooth can affect many nerves. If there is infection , it can spread , including into the neck area and behind the tooth to cause pain and affect many nerves and muscles. See your oral surgeon asap. This could be early sign of very dangerous infection. Get going !
