Can you see any white spots on your tonsils?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
I cant see my tonsils as my mouth is so swollen
Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 14 days ago.

You are right your symptoms might be due to dental issue if you have a wisdom tooth coming through. It is possible this has caused some infection. So, I suggest you see your dentist and if you don't have one, please call 111 as they have a dental service and can refer you to the emergency dentist.
