Thank you for the query.

Both sinus infection and tooth infection are strong factors of lymph nodes enlargement. Please note that lymph nodes are responsible for inflammatory process and in case of any inflammation they will be larger. That is how it works.
So if you want to get rid of this problem, you need to heal your tooth and try to heal sinusitis.

Hope this will help.
