Trigeminal Neuralgia is an often overlooked side effect of dental work. It is fairly rare, but something to be aware of in addition to the answer below:

I am not a dentist, but I did have an upper molar removed about two weeks ago.

As for facial pain. Several things could contribute to this. If the roots were fused to the jaw bone facial pain can last for quite some time.

Pain can also be caused at the injection site where the local anesthetic is administered. I have had pain like this that lasts over a week.

The headache could be just a by product of the overall procedure or related to a specific area near the sinuses which are very close to the upper mouth.

You think that your ceiling fan is giving you a headache in the morning?

Mine? No. Yours? It's possible. If you lie in such a way that the breeze from the fan dries out your sinuses during the night it could. If your ceiling fan is noisy and running all night it could cause a headache. If there are poorly sheilded eletrical wiring in your ceiling fan and you are sensitive to electro magnetic fields that could cause a headache. If your ceiling fan is hung too low and you bang your head on it in the morning then that would probably cause a good headache. If the ceiling fan falls from the ceiling onto your head that will almost certainly cause a headache and/or concussion or serious injury or death.
