Post-Tooth Extraction Concerns

Just had a tooth extraction, removed all of my wisdom teeth. All areas have healed more or less except my bottom right. That area still hasnt healed and gums are beginning to surround my molar (tooth 31)? Also the inner lining of my mouth near my jaw line is a blood red. Is this an infection? Should I seek a dentist out asap?

Gum tissue needs at least 1 week for healing. Don't worry about bleeding if it flows little ( salivary color may change into reddish when you notice)

No, call the oral surgeon to see you.
