Hi carolyn
Since i dont know ur age group... I will give you a general answer.
Yes heart related pain can be referred to the teeth. You should not take the symptom lightly. Visit your physician and get a checkup done.
For all you know it could be the seat belt.... But why take the risk.

Tooth abscess doesnt cause burning sensation in the chest.

Best wishes
