  • You are having bad taste in the mouth because of the infected tooth, which has been root canal treated and never finished and also may be because of wisdom teeth. As the tooth which was being root canal treated is open, so pus which is being formed is coming out and that is why it is not hurting but you are having infection. You should get it either treated or pulled out but keep taking amoxicillin which is precribed by ER. Keep doing warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day.
