I had my wisdom teeth out Saturday January 25 and I was just wondering if the taste would go away soon because every time I eat something, I just taste the metallic-ness.

  • When the extraction socket will heal then this metallic taste will go away. The metallic taste is because of food lodgement in the extraction socket which gets fermented and gives the metallic taste. Maintain good oral hygiene and do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day so that the infection does not set in. for more info on do's and dont's after tooth extraction you can check this link in our website.... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-tooth-extraction-27.aspx
