Short answer yes: These symptoms can be caused by bad teeth, specifically dental abscess or infection. The could also be caused by other issues. I would highly recommend a dental evaluation with radiographs (xrays) to see any specific teeth are causing your issues, or to eliminate dental origin as a possibility. Dental infection can worsen quickly and should not be left untreated.

Yes: Infection spreads rapidly. then longer you delay treatment, the less that can be done to fix your problem, the more expensive the repairs.
