Thanks for responding to my other post by the way.
It's good to ask on this board other people's experiences for confirmation. Also, is it possible to ask the dentist who pulled the tooth if this is common symptom after having a molar pulled or are you going to a new dentist because you are not happy with him??
Why was the molar pulled??
I know it's so hard to find a dentist who tells you the straight story. I can't share your experience with the molar pulling but hopefully alot of other people can who check the board.
Betweem last year and this year I've spend thousands on my molars when 9 of them were shaved down too much. They feel like half the size they use to be and feel like stumps with the air abrasion machine. I was so dumb in not getting a second or third opinion or taking the time to find a really good dentist. It stinks. But now all the dentists say is everything is OK and to let it go. I don't want to waste anymore money. Because dental insurance is really specific about what they do and don't pay for. I got stuck paying too much.
A friend of mine had all her rear teeth pulled and just the front ones remaining. She said it was very painful and feels like a big whole in the mouth at first but it goes away. It just is the healing time involved.
Good luck. I hope your ear pain clears up soon.
