How do I find out why can I taste metal in my mouth after dental work?

How do I find out why can I taste metal in my mouth after dental work?

Metal taste in mouth: Not sure what you had done, but i would want to know exactly what was done - did you have silver fillings done (which leave a metal taste for a couple days) or did you have some bridgework done (that might contain one of several different alloys)?. I would ask your dentist for specifics regarding this, just so you know what's going into your mouth - some metals are safer than others. ...Read more

Dental nerves: Nerves inside of a tooth come from many different locations. Dental infections sometimes make Lidocaine less effective due to the acidic environment. To make you more comfortable a dentist needs to give Lidocaine or Carbocaine (sometimes works better in an acidic environment). Also the location of the anesthetic may need to be adjusted due to the infection. ...Read more

What do you advise if i had dental work done to put in a replacement crown last week, and now my mouth is full of sores?

Sores: (1) Let your dentist know about your condition. You may find you are allergic to dental material. (2) Avoid spicy, or acidic food so as not to irritate sores. (3) Keep your mouth clean at all times. Avoid using much tooth paste as any chemicals may irritate your sores further. (4) Check if you are a mouth-breather--makes sores worse. (5) Anti-inflammatory meds of your choice if you can take them. ...Read more

My mother in law just had some dental work done and now she has a fever blister on her lip. Does this mean she has hsv-1 and is contagious?

My mother in law just had some dental work done and now she has a fever blister on her lip. Does this mean she has hsv-1 and is contagious?

Perhaps: If she had a previous history of hsv, then the stress of dental work can lead to a localized breakout. If it is hsv, then yes, she is contagious. Anytime there are active hsv lesions - oral or genital - then one is contagious. It's the fluid within the blister that contains the virus. ...Read more
