I had a root canal 3 years ago and it was discovered that it was so infected at the root, that the tooth had to be removed. 3 months ago, I had the tooth extracted and a bone graft prepared for the implant of the tooth 6 months later... Almost instantly, I experienced this unusual bad taste in my mouth and constant salavation. Regardless of brushing, flossing, etc., the bad film/taste appears within seconds... I had the bone graft removed 2 weeks ago thinking this was the cause of the bad taste. After the pain subsided, the same symptoms came back. I am not on any medication nor did I change my eatting habits. I'm hoping that someone has experienced this and can offer some suggestions... Thank you in advance
