Hello there...what kind of dental treatment you underwent?based on that i can let you know if your dental treatment has any relevance with your neck pain...Since you are complaining of neck have different reasons for that...though there are few dental conditions that has relevance, i cannot comment until i know the kind of treatment performed...
stiffness could be because of severe pharyngitis or tonsillitis or any form of infection in your neck....if it only to the neck region then you can consult an ENT who are experts in it...
bacterial infection to the salivary gland (submandibular salivary gland) would also lead to pain in the neck..clinical evaluation is mandatory for final diagnosis....

Hello sir
First of all i should make it sure that there is no relation of your problem with dental treatment,
as you are complaining of sore throat since last three months this may be a causative agent, i will suggest you to visit your ENT surgeon as soon as possible.
thanks & take care
