In brief: See Your Dentist

Unfortunately you need to see your dentist so that they can take a radiograph (xray) and do an examination to determine why your glands are swollen.
Typically, if a lower tooth has a large cavity, your glands can swell due to the fact that they are filterin bacteria from that part fo the face. Fortunately, your dentist can make the right diagnosis and take care of the problem.

In brief: Possibly

Not really sure of your question.
One sign of an infected lower tooth can be swollen glands under the jaw (in the floor of the mouth or in your neck).

In brief: See dentist

Infected teeth (usually lower) can cause swelling of lymph nodes in neck.
See dentist. If teeth ok, see ENT doc for swollen glands behind jaw bone.
