Foul taste from wisdom teeth extraction site

User Level:
Posted by: codehacker  (9 years ago)
Hello there!

I had all my wisdom teeth removed four days ago. Everything is going fine except for this awful taste in my mouth. I brush my teeth, clean the sites with the syringe I got from the dentist and I have been rinsing with salt water but the foul taste keeps coming back. It gets worse everyday. I can't seem to stand the taste and the smelly anymore. Does anybody have suggestions on how to get rid of this bad taste? I would be grateful for all answers!

Your dentist should have a look at it. He can open it up and clean it out. Continue rinsing with salt water.

When I had my wisdom teeth taken out I also had a bad taste from the extraction site. I squirted a salt water into the incision through a syringe. This helped in flushing out everything that was stuck in the extraction hole. After a few days, the bad taste went away.
