You need to know that the terms cheek glands and dental glands do not exist in medical medicine. Around the face and neck there are only two glands, the salivary glands and lymph nodes. Salivary glands consist of 3 types and all are in the area around the mouth to produce fluids and enzymes that are useful when food is digested in the mouth. The three glands include the salivary glands at the back of the cheeks close to the ear, the sublingua glands under the tongue and the submandibular glands located in the lower jaw.
While the lymph nodes are where the immune system is produced and spread in several parts of the body, namely the neck, chest, armpits, trunk, hips, thighs, etc.
Disorders of the salivary glands and lymph nodes are different from the symptoms of toothache. Swelling of the salivary glands often causes a lump / swelling in the upper neck area near the ear, this is commonly called mumps which is often caused by a viral infection. While pain in the teeth can cause swelling in the gums or in the mouth wall that is close to the diseased tooth. Tooth pain can be caused by cavities, inflammation of the gums, caries, or other disorders of the gums and teeth. Evaluation and examination directly to the dentist is needed to assess your condition and find the exact cause.
Disorders of the gland can subside and disappear if treatment is based on the cause that is found. Similarly, interference with the teeth, if the cause can be resolved then the complaints and symptoms will also disappear.
Here are some tips for maintaining dental health and preventing complaints from returning:
Diligently clean your mouth at least 2x a day by brushing your teeth
Reduce sweet food because it can lead to caries and cavities
Avoid picking out leftover food with cavities with sharp objects
Diligent Gargling with a liquid containing antiseptic
If pain and swelling, take pain medications such as ibuprofen to relieve symptoms
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
