Thank you for the query.
Tonsililitis chronica is an infection and oval shaped swelling of the lymph gland tissue located on both sides on the back of the throat caused because of the bacterial or viral infection . Presence of infection in the teeth and the tonsils are usually because of the same bacterial flora but the possibility of transfer from the teeth to the tonsils is very much less.. soo it indicates infection of the teeth itself . see your dentist and get the teeth treated.

Hello there, tonsillitis is the inflammation of tonsills caused by viral or bacterial infection.It shows the symptoms of fever and sore throat. yes tonsillitis can be related to tooth infection as the causative organisms for both are same e.g streptococcus, e.b virus etc. but this can only be a secondary cause. Get your infected tooth treated and we can rule out the actual cause for tonsillitis. hope that helps you,take care.

Hello & welcome
Tonsillitis is an inflammation of glands present in throat, causing pain & difficulty in swallowing.
there may be several causes for this including bacterial, viral or dental, and if your infected tooth is wisdom tooth than there are more chances for tonsillitis, because same bacterial flora can cause both of infections.
I hope this information will help you.
