In brief: Tooth infections

Yes, tooth infections can spread to surrounding (and even distant) locations causing serious complications.
As a matter of fact, people have died from untreated tooth infections. I personally know of such cases! see a dentist asap for diagnosis and treatment. It is nothing to take lightly.
