  • This bad taste in mouth is due to food lodgment in socket area which gets fermented as healing takes around 3 weeks to 6 weeks. If there is no pain or swelling then you donot have to be concerned. Just maintain good oral hygiene and keep doing warm saline rinses. If the taste is really bad then you can use some antimicrobial mouthwash. This taste will eventually go in couple of days as the socket heals. for more infon on complications and healing after tooth extraction, you can check the following link in our website.... http://www.identalhub.com/article_care-after-wisdom-tooth-extraction-258.aspx
