the metalic taste means one of your fillings the silver kind is leaking it means you need to go and see a dentist and get it fixed

Normal. Some people hear things, some see things, some feel things that aren't real. That's why we have several senses -- to double-check them against themselves.

That's also why "perception is NOT reality." Reality is reality, and the closer our perception gets to reality, the more realistic -- the more sane -- we have the potential to be.

could be a lack of vitamins . type metallic taste in mouth in yahoo search it came up with several things. good idea to check with doctor.

Are you pregnant??

The bad news is that a constant, sour, bitter, metallic taste is actually a symptom of bad breath. It can be caused by a number of things: a dry mouth, thick saliva, excess mucus in the throat, post nasal drip, a diet high in proteins, (dairy foods, red meat, beans, etc.), smoking, alcohol (in adult beverages or surprisingly your mouthwash, hormonal changes, medications that have dry mouth as a side-effect, history of diabetes, special types of diets (i.e. the atkins diet, or excessive use of old fashioned oral products that may actually contain alcohol or harsh detergents.

Consult your dentist so you can zero in on what is really causing it. What I've used to permanently get rid of dry mouth is Therabreath. It is a great line of oral products by Dr. Harold Katz that fights bad breath and takes it away. Try their toothpaste, oral rinse, tongue scraper and floss. I don't see why it wouldn't work for you when it has worked for me.

Good luck!

Metal! Arf!

No, seriously, it could be blood. After all, blood does have a mildly coppery taste.

metallic taste - do a pregnancy test... seriously!


n3utr0n
Sometimes these indicators can be something as normal as an mild allergic reaction to other more severe medical issues including cancer. I'm not trying to scare you, but you know yourself better than anyone ever will. And it seems like you're looking for an answer that will never be adequately produced here. I strongly suggest that you seek professional medical help. Worse off, if you find nothing, you can count it as a yearly check-up!

A metallic taste in the mouth is a fairly common problem — and usually not serious. Although you don't have actual taste buds that detect metals, the perception of the taste is described as "metallic."

A metallic taste can be due to many factors. But the most common causes of a metallic taste are:

Medications such as some antibiotics, prenatal vitamins and antidepressants, as well as drugs used to treat high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis and kidney stones
Oral problems, including oral infections such as gingivitis or periodontitis, tooth infections, and poor oral hygiene
Sometimes the cause of a metallic taste can't be determined. In many cases, the problem goes away on its own after several months or longer. Proper oral hygiene can help, including regularly brushing your teeth and brushing and scraping your tongue. Done properly, dental restorations — such as fillings and inlays are rarely the cause of a metallic taste.

Are you on any medications. Many medications have this side effect.

Blood cells can also cause this. When blood breaks down, iron is released and causes a metallic taste in mouth. Bleeding can be from the gums, sinuses or nose. The taste can get especially bad when someone has post nasal drip and the dried blood sticks to the back of the throat. If bleeding gums are the cause there is often bad breath associated with the bad taste.

Another uncommon reason for a metallic taste in mouth is due to small electric currents in the mouth. When two types of metals are used in two different dental fillings a battery can be created. Some believe that it's due to the mercury leakage from dental silver/mercury fillings.

Many oral or IV medications such as thyroid medicine, penicillin, and lithium can give a metallic taste in mouth. When someone is allergic to a specific food, the food can often be detected even in extremely small amounts. Food allergies, such as with sulfur dioxide, can also cause this. Some gastrointestinal disorders can be aggravated by food allergies and cause burping, dry mouth, thirst, rectal itching and a metal taste. High protein diets can cause benign dietary ketosis. This has also been associated with a metal taste.

Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or cancer itself can cause a metallic taste in mouth. It has also been associated with B 12 deficiency, zinc deficiency, Bell's palsy, Strep throat and Sjogren's disease along with anything that causes dry mouth.

Hope you find your cause. Good luck!

Metallic taste in the mouth could be caused by an excess of adrenaline.Have you checked your adrenal gland with doctor?Sweet taste in mouth is a sign of diabetes.Have you blood sugar checked.


Jane C
This is honestly genuine, but many women experience a metalic taste in their mouth during early pregnancy! Might be best to rule that out first! Dont mean to scare you though!

Apart from that any changes at all should be checked in this case by your dentist and then by your doctor. It is best to get these things checked out although chances are it's just one of those things. A nice mouthwash will help if theres no medical reason, then you wont get annoyed by the taste.

Very best of luck!

Go to a dentist as it sounds like some kind of mouth infection. I had a metallic taste in my mouth when a wisdom tooth caused a gum infection.

this is a common problem actually (dentists see it alot)

medications can sometimes causes this (things like antibiotics,prenatal vitamins, and medication for high blood pressure)

the most common cause is oral problems. things such as gingivits, cavities, or not brushing enough can cause it.

if you're not taking any medications and are not pregnant, i would make an appt to see your dentist to have your teeth checked out.


Curious
You need to start eliminating.

Go to the dentist and check that all is well, you could have a gum bleeding and not realise..

Go to the doctors for a blood test....there could be loads of reasons for the taste. Doctors eliminate what could be obvious....then they look for more serious things.

Hope you get it sorted.

Did you just have a filling done? Did one come out? Are you on any medications, some medications can leave a poor taste in your mouth.
