Can an infected tooth affect your ear?

Ear/tooth pain

Teeth_brushing
if there is an infection surrounding the root end of a tooth, this will affect the entire nerve trunk. the nerve trunk that innervates the upper teeth run back toward and around the ear canal. so this would be "referred" pain froom the infected tooth

CAN A BAD TOOTH INFECTED TOOTH KILL YOU AND HOW?

YES

Teeth
If the infection is bad enough and your immune system is depressed, the infection can spread infecting your blood (septicemia) and take you to coma and..... So before thinking in dying, it would be wise to think in treating the infected tooth with antibiotics to kill the germ responsible for the infection and/or have the tooth extracted if the doctor advises so. Treat the cause.

No

Antibiotics
Infections typically require antibiotics, but this is only a temporary fix. The source of the infection, the tooth, needs to be addressed as well
