Dental cavity lymph node

I have a wollen submandibular lymph node on my right hand side and also a possible dental cavity on the same side.  i am going to the dentist as soon as they find a free space for me (this week hopefully). Can a dental cavity cause swollen lymph nodes??

Yes, they can. They can cause the lymph nodes to be swollen and tender if the infection has spread.  Good to get it checked out as soon as possible.
