In brief: Yes

Routine dental care is very beneficial in keeping your mouth healthy.
Issues and problems can be caught early and prevent needs for root canals and extractions. I highly recommend your seeing a dentist.

Tootache generally is causef by a diseased tooth or gums.
Many other conditions can also cause a toothache. Such as muscular , jaw pain., refered pain from other areas. A comprehensive oral exam must be done at least every three years including full mouth radiographs followed by regular visits for periodic exam and dental cleaning.

In brief: Depends how long?

If your teeth hurt on both sides this could be tmj.
Any difficulty with chewing? If one sided likely molars moving. Bruxism or clenching your teeth at night might be possible. If the problem has been only a few days probably no immediate need to see a dentist, but if for weeks then probably a good idea.
