Yes: But so can infections around the tooth, TMJ dysfunction, and an ear infection. This can only be accurately diagnosed with a clinical and visual examination. Make an appt with your dentist and/or an ENT specialist.

Wisdom teeth: Yes, it could be TMJ syndrome. You should see a dentist or an Oral surgeon, get some X-rays or/ and a CT scan to properly diagnose and eliminate the wisdom tooth as an issue. In general, With a wisdom tooth decayed, I would get the wisdom tooth out of the way first to eliminate it as a culprit. Stay safe.
