Yes.


Swelling of the gums and soft tissue around an infected tooth is common. If there is a lot of inflammation, or the infection is not treated, the lymph nodes that drain the area of infection will enlarge as part of the immune response, just as would happen with other infections like a cold or strep throat.

If you have persistently enlarged lymph nodes in the cervical chain it would be advisable to have this looked at by an experienced clinician. Most are quite benign, but can also be suggestive of potential problems.

Unlikely


yeast infections in throat do not occur in healthy people, only if you have a serious immune deficiency. In that case you will have severe sore throat and that can be associated with enlarged neck lymph nodes.

Swollen nodes


If merely broken? no. However that tooth, other teeth that have infections, gum infections or any infection in your head can cause swollen lymph nodes. Many individuals have chronically swollen nodes from allergies, sinusitis, etc. All tender or swollen nodes (or any lumps) should be evaluated by your physician (and dentist) as appropriate to the location and symptoms present.

See a doctor


It is very unlikely but if you have an infected tooth than you need to see a dentist. You must also see a doctor for your swollen lymph nodes.
