Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

Yes, tooth related infections can bring about a feeling of general weakness and fatigue.

But this feeling of illness is not life threatening.

The only life threatening situation is when teeth get infected and the infection spreads to produce an anormous swelling under the tongue. This specific condition is called Ludwqig's Angina, and can cause difficulty in respiration.
