A 53-year-old female asked:
Bitter medicine placed in tooth after root canal will not fade even post-crown. Have altered sense of taste/smell. What's in it, will it go away?

Bitter taste: You need to discuss this with your own dentist. I don't think what you are experiencing is related to any lingering medications used during RCT, especially if the tooth had a permanent crown cemented on over it. A temporary crown may have cement that leaches medication. If necessary get a second opinion from another dentist.
