wisdom teeth, vertigo

Four months ago my husband had a severe dizzy spell in the middle of the night with profuse sweating and extreme nausea. Since then he has had several less severe episodes of vertigo and today again a very severe attack, like the first. We suspected BPPV and saw a physical therapist who specializes in treatment for this. She could not be conclusive on this and refered him to an ENT who had a MRI done, because my husband also has complete hearing loss in his right ear. No tumor was found nor signs of BPPV but the report mentioned marked enhancement of the cochlea and vistibule on the right side, as well as mild sinusitis in the maxillary and ethmoidan cells. The ENT chalked it all up to a severe virus that destroyed a nerve. But, I am suspicious of an impacted horizontal wisdom tooth, which he never had removed, on the right side. I believe that it has errupted somewhat currently. Can a wisdom tooth like this cause vertigo? Sincerely, Suspicious Wife
