In brief: Nerve

Irritation of the same nerve that supplies the wisdom tooth.
Will settle down shortly. If not, ask oral surgeon.

In brief: Inflammation

An inflamed inferior alveolar nerve can transmit pain along the entire nerve, all the way from the extraction site to the lower central incisor on the same side.
Not sure if you have an infection , but you may want your surgeon to take a look. Feel better soon.
