Infections in and around wisdom teeth do not generally spread into your ear.

In brief: It is possible

When wisdom teeth cause problems or earache they need to come out.
If you are experiencing pain, swollen gums, lymph nodes and it does not go away or if you find it difficult to open your mouth, you should see a dentist for evaluation, x-ray and wisdom teeth removal.
