Why do I have a bad taste around my Dental Implants?

avoid-bad-taste-for-better-dental-healthYou may have a condition called peri-implantitis. Peri-implantitis is a fancy word for “dental implant inflammation.” In other words, you may have a minor/major infection around one or more dental implants. You should immediately make an appointment to visit with a dentist to have the area evaluated. The cause will be determined and several treatment options will be presented. Choose the best option for you and treat the infected tissues around the dental implants.

The range of treatments for a bad tasting dental implant are as follows:

  • Rinse with mouthwash focusing on the infected area around the dental implants
  • Clean thoroughly with toothbrushes
  • Perform dental implant surgery to surgically remove the infected tissues
  • Dental implant replacement. If so, inquire about the 3 Minute Implant™
