Brief Answer:
Yes, you should get checked.

Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Thanks for the query..

Extraction site generally heals initially in 10-15 days..
Pain after one and half months of extraction is not normal..
Once a clinical examination should be done to check for Infection or any remaining root piece in the socket..

Also please answer the following questions:
-Is the pain always present or only on eating and drinking?
-Do you have any pus or fluid discharge from the socket?
-Any bad smell from the extraction site or mouth?

Please revert back with answers..

Regards.

only when drinking and eating, though it may linger for a couple of hours after. I don't have any pus coming out and there isn't any bad smell.
