What causes soreness in gums?

I had my wisdom teeth removed a week ago and everything seems fine except for a rotten taste in my mouth and something that looks like a canker sore on one of the extraction site gums. Also two nights ago I had uncontrollable shakes and blood in my urine which my doctors determined to be a UTI. I was wondering if taste and sore in my mouth was anything to worry about if I had no pain or other problems? Also I wanted to know if the UTI could be related to the wisdom teeth removal in anyway because I have never had any issues like that before and it was completely sudden? I am 25 years old, female, about 135lbs, and 5'9''.

Thanks for posting the query,

The urinary tract infection might have caused ulcerations in the mouth, pain , swelling and fever are common complications after tooth extraction follow the post extraction instructions given to you completely.
Take the complete course of antibiotics and analgesics, at home take lukewarm saline and antiseptic mouthwash rinses.

Take care!
