In brief: No direct link

See your dentist to get that tooth fixed if possible as well as a complete dental exam. If the neck pain continues, see your physician.

In brief: It can..

An infection can cause pain, as can inflammation of a vital nerve in the tooth.
A sharp edge can cut your tongue, too. Even if the tooth is not causing your neck pain, both need to be checked out. See a dentist first, and if the pain does not subside after the tooth is restored, see your physician.

In brief: It is possible

In some cases, the lymph glands in the neck will become swollen and tender. Regardless, see your dentist for evaluation, x-rays and treatment.
