In brief: No

Chronic ear infections are usually due to blocked eustachian tubes.
There is no connection between the two.

In brief: Not really....but

Sometimes the trauma of an extraction can make it feel like you have an ear problem.
An ear infection is caused by bacteria or a virus and not from the extraction. Check back with the dentist if no improvement in the ear after a week.
