Yes, once dental infection is eliminated, regional lymphadenopathy tends to resolve without consequence.

A tooth on the right side was taken out but the lymph node on the left is that common ?

Uncommon, going back to your dentist to have a post op exam is advised.

The lymph node was there before the extraction but I thought that since the infection would cause the lymph node to rise.
