In brief: No

Never heard of that relationship.
See dentist for tooth pain. If negative exam, see orofacial-TMJ pain specialist.

Ear nerve damage probably will not cause tooth pain.

In brief: Impossible

but in the case of a tooth ache, you can have referred pain to the ear.
This is true if your tooth pains is an upper jaw and tooth on the same side as your ear. This is called referred ear pain. Take care.

In brief: Tooth pain

Is the ear /nerve damage recent? Or has it been there for a while? Sometimes the sinus in your upper jaw can cause ear and tooth pain.
- i would see your dentist and explain the problem and see if they can rule out the tooth pain.
