I had a lower third molar extracted (hospital) five weeks ago, after a wait of around six months due to coronavirus. The tooth was extracted due to infection.

I have got mild pain in the jaw under the extraction site, no other signs or symptoms. Thoughts?

Lower wisdom teeth are usually more traumatic to remove than upper due to anatomic differences. The lower jaw bone is thicker and more dense requiring more forces to remove wisdom teeth. As long as your discomfort is tolerable and have no swelling (infection), you should expect improvement.
