Possible: A rotten tooth can lead to infection that can also spread to other areas, including the nerves and tissue of the mouth and head. See a qualified dentist asap to make sure and treat, especially getting the tooth removed or treated.
Dr. Louis Gallia

Yes.: Yes. See DDS or oral surgeon for assessment. Can become worse.
