  • It is difficult to comment on your situation without clinical examination and xrays. The pain can be due to extraction socket or it can be some tooth which is in the bone. As you are saying there is black spot in the wisdom tooth area, so may be some root part left which is causing the problem. So schedule an appointment with your dentist and get an xray done to find out the cause of pain. Sometimes you have referred pain also due to some other infected tooth. for more info on complications after tooth extraction you can read this article in our website.... http://www.identalhub.com/dental-complications-after-tooth-extraction-881.aspx
