Thanks for asking the query,

From the description this can be healing socket or interdental papilla that came out after extraction ..
I would advice you to use warm saline gargles
Maintain a good oral hygiene .
use 0.2%chlorhexidine mouthwash solution twice daily .

As the extra mass remained is creating a problem you can visit the dentist and get it removed.

Thanks for posting your query.

From the description,its clear that the extraction socket has not healed properly.
Gooey substance is the discharge of abscess through the socket.
I would suggest you to gargle frequently using warm saline.
Betadine rinse can also be done.
Dressing using ZOE/IODOFORM GAUZE has to be done.
Complete course of antibiotics has to be taken.
Also get your blood-sugar level checked to monitor diabetes mellitus.
Please do visit your dentist to check whether any root piece or bone projection occurs at the extraction socket and get it removed.
Hope this helps.
