  • The bad taste in the mouth before the tooth was pulled out is due to infection. After pulling the tooth, the decayed tooth is gone but may be infection is still there which takes time to go. So you have to be careful. Maintain good oral hygiene. Do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day and avoid eating from that side till healing is completed, which can take upto 2-3 weeks. for more info on dos and dont's after tooth extraction, you can read this article in our website.... http://www.identalhub.com/article_do's-and-don'ts-after-tooth-extraction-153.aspx
