Tooth implant - foul taste
by Barry Mckee
My front tooth implant which I've had in for about 5 years came loose My dentist no longer does implants so I had to see one of his colleagues who removed the crown & had to re-tighten the screw as it had came loose,the implant itself was fine & he stuck the crown back in.
I have noticed since then that when I suck on the implant tooth I get a foul taste like there is food being trapped in there, afterwards the bad taste goes away until I eat or drink again, he has X-rayed it & everything seems o.k (no infection).
Does anyone know what my be causing this to happen as there hasn't been a problem up until now...
