Brief Answer:
Yes infection and inflammation can cause lymphadenopathy.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

As far as lymphadenopathy is concerned YES enlargement of lymph nodes can be due to carious tooth and periodontal infection. Swelling of lymph node is related to condition infection or inflammation.
If there is carious tooth, decayed tooth, gingival inflammation or periodontal infection lymph node enlarges.

For lymphadenopathy I will suggest you to consult oral surgeon for investigation intraoral periapical radiograph (X-ray) and treatment of both carious tooth and scaling of teeth for periodontal infection.
In the meantime I will suggest to do warm saline rinses 2 -3 times a day, Maintain proper oral hygiene , Brush your teeth twice daily, use mouthwash like chlorhexidine regularly.

Hope this will help you. If you have further query I will be happy to help you. Feel free to ask anytime.
