Brief Answer: Normal condition Detailed Answer: Hi, I have gone through your query. Aching of your ear after extraction of your tooth is the normal and frequent condition because both have common nerve supply. This condition is known as the referred otalgia i.e. overlying disease not present in the ear. Avoid putting oil, ear bud and water in the ear. You may take simple pain killer for this. If you have any doubt, I will be available for your query. Regards
