ENT Specialist 's  Response

welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding jaw pain after tooth extraction (left molar).

Here I would like to tell you that pain of tooth socket of extracted molar had a tendency to be referred to ear of same side, Secondarily during extraction of difficult impacted tooth some times temporomandibular joint gets injured and and start paining along with earache.

Therefore it will be better to consult your dentist or ENT specialist to manage it.
