Crown Cements - Implants: I have three new implants (back upper left), one new crown, and one onlay that needs to be replaced.
Ever since the implants were cemented in, I have had the worst taste in my mouth which alternates between medicinal and like an old attic. I'm so embarrassed to talk to anyone up close.
Could it be the cement? If so, are there cements that could be used instead? I am desperate. ...Visitor from MN
The cement most likely contained eugenol. It has a medicinal taste because it can calm down the pulp if a tooth is hyper-sensitive.
Implant crowns are generally cemented with a long term provisional cement. "Improve" is an acrylic based cement. It has a fast set time, cleans up very easily and has been very effective in its retentive properties. It has no taste.
You do not have to live with that taste in your mouth.
