Had seizures. Why are tests unable to detect problem? Am I infected?

I had my first seizure on June 10 2012 in my sleep. Ihad 3 CT Scans, MRI , EEG , and EKG . All the tests came back normal. I then had another seizure on August 12th. in my sleep as well. My question is... I have had an impacted wisdom tooth on the upper right side of my mouth fo about 5 years. The molar in front of the wisdom tooth is ifected as well. Could the infected, impacted tooth be the cause of the sudden onset of seizure? Thanks

First of all be very clear that all the tests you have listed may be normal in patients with seizures. Wisdom tooth extraction and infection is not related to seizures.
Good luck.
