In brief: Sometimes

There are many potential causes/sources of tooth pain, so a broad answer that addresses each cause isn't practical in 400 words.
However, sometimes the gum tissue covering an erupting wisdom tooth can get inflamed and infected, swollen, and then repeatedly crushed through chewing on that side. It is called pericoronitis. Can it spread to the brain? Not likely, but no reason to wait. C yur dent

In brief: Possibly- see below

Symptoms similar to a sore throat can come from a wisdom tooth- wouldn't normally be described as "dry".
Inflamed gums around affected teeth can mimic symptoms from a throat infection, and an infection from a wisdom tooth can spread towards your throat. Any dental infection can spread to the brain, although it is not very common but nfections of these types need to be evaluated and treated asap.

In brief: Infection

Should not get alot of pain just by eating.
Wisdom tooth may be infected. If so, can spread into other areas. Sometimes with seriouis results. For best results with wisdom teeth, make sure you are evaluated and treated by a board certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon.
