Can my toothache make me feel dizzy?

i started feeling dizzy last weekend and i am wondering if its got anything to with my toothache. i had the dentist look at my tooth about a month or so ago and she said that i need a root canal done but i havent had the time to go back yet. do u think the dizziness has any thing to do with my toothache. thanks, pat

Pat – If your dentist recommended a root canal treatment, it’s because you have an infection in your tooth. An infected tooth that has an abscess can spread to the nerves in your ears and cause you to feel dizzy.

A tooth infection continues to spread until it’s treated, so to prevent other health issues, we recommend that you promptly make an appointment to see your dentist.
