Question:
Bone placements and bad taste: I had number 19 extracted due to Acrack and infection. Cadaver bone placed after curettage of infection.

It is now day 13 and I still have a terrible taste. There is still some material left in socket that has not yet dissolved.

Is bad taste normal? I have already finished antibiotic amoxicillin. ...Visitor from Portsmouth

Answer:
Something doesn't sound right. Socket grafting is a popular and successful method for IMMEDIATELY filling in a tooth extraction socket with material that regenerates new bone.

A properly executed socket graft should ELIMINATE the existence of a socket, producing instead a plump tissue area on the extraction site that has removable or self dissolving sutures.

Your report of a bad taste suggests an infection is still operating. There should be NO taste of anything.

It may be wise for you to get an consult with a Periodontist. There may be some periodontal tissue suturing issues that have developed.
