Dry mouth is one of the typical side effects of Wellbutrin and most other antidepressants. I am guessing that the dry mouth led to the canker sore, which then got infected, which is why you had to be on antibiotics. You could check with your doctor to see if that's the case and what to do about it. It's not a side effect to tolerate because it's not good for your oral health.
Drink lots of water! It will probably help, and it won't hurt unless you drink something like 8 gallons a day (I heard of a woman who did exactly that and had to be in hospital; apparently even water, in excessive quantities, is toxic).
I just googled on "dry mouth treatment" (without the quotes) and got tons of hits, including an article on WebMD which could be helpful. They mention a drug called Salagen but also offer a number of non-drug alternatives.

“Sometimes fate is like a small sand-storm that keeps changing directions. You change direction, but the sand-storm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before death. Why? Because this storm isn't something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you.”
― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
