After a dental implant, how long does the salty taste remain in your
mouth? ... Visitor from South Africa
You shouldn't be having a salty taste.....
Assuming you had an upper implant placed, your current symptom suggests you have a perforation or leakage issue.
With proper diagnostics and treatment planning, this event should not have occurred.
If your current care provider lacks the diagnostic tools and talents to pin point the specific area of treatment need, get a consult with a Periodontist. You may be in need of a Sinus Lift Procedure, wherein bone graft material is injected into the treatment area.
Sinus Lift procedures are nearly "routine" with dentists who perform implant dentistry on a frequent basis.
