Before 15 days my wisdom tooth extraction was done. After that I am experiencing severe pain from lower jaw to the upper part of the ear. Is it from wisdom tooth extraction or from something else. Please tell.

this pain is from dry socket, which can occur after wisdom tooth extraction. I can guide you with its treatment.
Hello, you need to do warm salt water rinses for relief from pain. If it still persists, you need to consult an oral surgeon.
There is a possibility that it can be because of wisdom tooth extraction if there was a trauma to the vital structures during dis-impaction. Or from dry socket. Confirm with a digital X-ray.
