Wisdom teeth extractions are the trickiest types and the most common to get healing complications. From your general statement it seems like improper or incomplete healing. Or there might have been a piece of left over tooth or bone where even after the gum has healed completely the healing is improper and causes those symptoms. I'd recommend you follow up with another dentist and have them take a PA (periapical film X-ray) of the extraction. Site to check for any abnormalities. As a temporary solution you can consult family doctor for antibiotics (500mg amoxicillin) if there is visible infection as well as salt water rinses (1 spoon salt to 1 cup water) after meal and before bed. Try to keep the area as clean as possible, gentle brushing. You can also leave a small dab of toothpaste over the area if concern and leave it overnight (don't rinse it out until morning)
