In brief: Maybe

If you have an actual bacterial infection and a history of prosthetic heart valves, previous endocarditis, or certain congenital heart conditions, this risk is potentially serious.
Seek consultation with a dentist ASAP and be thorough explaining your cardiac history, if any. You may require antibiotics if you have these risk factors.

In brief: Myocarditis

Myocarditis is an inflammation of the myocardium, the middle layer of the heart wall.
Myocarditis is usually caused by a infection. Not sure if your affected tooth is infected or not, but the sooner you have it treated the better your chances of staying healthy. An abscess can easily spread bacteria and toxins through your bloodstream. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myocarditis
