In brief: It can...

A tooth broken off at the gum line creates a direct path for oral bacteria to move freely inside to your jaw bone.
Once inside, these bacteria can start to multiple and create an infection. This is often contained by the body and is called an abscess, but it can cause swelling on that side, pain, sore glands, and potentially blood poisoning. Don't ignore it, see your dentist asap!

In brief: Yes

Broken teeth on any side most likely will leave the nerve exposed.
When s nerve is recoosed not only is pain associated but the nerve will atrophy and eventually abscess causing infection. This infection can spread into the subclavian cavity, into the sinus, brain and spread through out the body.

In brief: Yes

But it can cause problems all over your body.
Infections can set up in the gums, and increase inflammation all over, which increases the risk of heart disease and other conditions. Please see a dentist who specializes in this problem.
