I had my wisdom tooth removed as well as had a first molar cavity refilled on the same side, and it's now day 9. I still have earache and TMJ pain and my extraction site still looks like a hole. Yesterday I thought I had some debris stuck and it wasn't going and thought it was granulation tissue but today while rinsing it got cleared out. Whole right jaw and earache has been there since day 1 and gets aggravated at night. My bite was off for the first week and was corrected but the pain is persistent, usually comes back after sleeping. Could you please tell if this is normal or I need to get it checked again?

2 weeks is a long time for that area to heal. I would consider arranging a follow up visit with the dentist and maybe consider seeing a TMJ specialist.
X-rays would be helpful, so that we can evaluate the other teeth in the area.
