In brief: What to do

You should address your questions to the dentist who recently removed your molar. He/she would be the best one to know both your medical and dental history and properly advise you.
Call and ask. It's his/her responsibility to follow you through the healing stage until you can be dismissed as a patient. Medications can cause a dry mouth. Taking any? Drinking enough? and the gum is what?
