Specializes in Orthodontics

Sour teeth: Sour taste in your mouth may indicate infection at site or surgery, gum infection, dental abscess. May indicate GI disturbance or systemic illness. If you are taking antibiotics may have overgrowth of other oral flora. Best to have the Dentist or Oral Surgeon that did your extraction review the surgical site and advise you.
