Yes: Sitting for a long time in the dental chair. Other than that, the extraction should not be causing any back pain, the roots of your teeth are just not that long.. Feel better soon...

Perhaps: The two are not directly linked, but a twist or turn, bad posture or position, or muscle spasm could make the two related. Best to check with md if it persists or you have chronic back pain.
