In brief: Unlikely

How often do you see a dentist? Do you maintain good oral hygiene? Have a dentist evaluate your infected tooth and get treated.
Usually infected teeth are caused by poor oral hygiene and not a weak immune system.

In brief: Probably not

Teeth infections are usually a local problem - poor oral hygiene, inherited or acquired tooth enamel problems, secondary to gingivitis, related to tobacco use.
