Talk to your GP: Salty taste in your mouth can be caused by a variety of things. Try discussing with your GP instead of a specialist who only focuses on specific areas. Some typical causes can be Diabetes, certain meds that cause dry mouth, mineral supplements, chronic borderline dehydration, GERD, nutritional/vitamin deficiencies, hormone fluctuations, and certain cancers.

The altered taste might be coming from the gum which you chew or the Mouth wash containing Alcohol which you might be using . You can try to scrap your tongue with Tongue Blade to remove plaque from Top of Tongue . At times indigestion and constipation can cause altered taste , if any condition exists ,see your physician
