Yes, you can. An infection in your wisdom tooth is signaled by foul taste in your mouth, bad persistance breath, pain in your teeth, headache, fever and chills (at advanced stage infection).

YES! In fact getting the offending tooth out of your mouth will result in the infection going away faster. The only time a tooth should not be taken out in the presence of an infection is when the gum tissue around wisdom teeth is infected. These should be treated with antibiotics first to avoid spreading the infection into the neck.
