Wisdom teeth extraction/Bad taste

Last thursday (June 22) I had all four wisdom teeth extracted. I had the occasional bad breath from lack of brushing and stuff, but now tonight, suddenly my mouth developed this slimey, acid taste, and it's disgusting. I pray it isn't an infection. I get my stitches out the 29th. Has anyone else experienced this bad taste?

Re: Wisdom teeth extraction/Bad taste

Unbelievable, 27 people read this and no one responds. I don't know if it's an infection or not but from what I've found from doing a search, an infection would also hurt. But yet it also says you would have a bad taste. I too hope it's not an infection. You say you get your stitches out today so the dentist will be able to tell you if anything is going on. Maybe you can post later to let us know, but then, seeing as how nobody repsonded to your initial request, I wouldn't blame you if you didn't Hope all is well, and you take care.

Im pretty sure i just cured it, I hope. I rinsed before and out came a small piece of meatloaf I had eaten two days ago . I brushed my teeth after, and the taste isnt as bad anymore and some pain went away on the socket it was in.

The same thing happened to me. I had some piece of food stuck in the extraction hole and it smelled really bad. I rinsed with saltwater, and rinsed and rinsed..... and finally it came out. Keep rinsing with saltwater, I did it every time I ate to keep stuff from getting "stuck".
