metallic taste from teeth
The short version of my story is that I have had jaw pain under two back molars for a year now. Dentists, endodontists and oral surgeons could find nothing wrong so it is being treated as a neuropathy for the time being. Anyway, I have two crowns (no root canals) on these back two molars. They have never been sensitive to cold or tapping when tested by the endo., but sometimes are sensitive to bite pressure if I bite just the right way.
Anyway, for the past week or so I have noted a metallic taste coming from these crowned teeth on the back (tongue) side along the gumline. Is this from the metal part of the crown? Could it be an abscess? I thought that any taste from an abscess would be foul, not metallic, but now I'm wondering. Am I just being paranoid? I just don't want to pay yet another $100 for a consult with an endo. just to be told he can't find anything wrong. Anybody else experience this and what caused it? Thanks for your help!
