    It's rare to experience problems from a wisdom tooth extraction much later on. The most common problem that occurs after such an extraction has healed is that a little piece of the root of the tooth that was inadvertently left behind starts working its way out of the bone and soft tissue. It feels very similar to a baby tooth growing in. Alternatively, a small piece of bone might break off during an extraction — without blood supply, it becomes a foreign object that works its way through the tissue. But either of these complications would normally occur in the aftermath of the extraction rather than few years later.You need to seek the advice of a dental professional, preferably a periodontist or oral surgeon, who does this kind of work, and have him or her take an X-ray, either a CT scan or Panorex. The image should be not only of your teeth but also your jawbone. This will allow you to rule out any kind of infection, cyst, or problem at the extraction site that could account for the pain. It's possible that there's a problem with the tooth adjacent to the extraction socket. The tooth might have a cavity or need a root canal treatment, which would makes it feel as though it's affecting the socket area. Teeth are very close together, and often neither the patient nor the dentist can tell exactly which tooth is causing a problem.
