Video: Effects of Tongue Piercing
Pictures: Oral Lesion - Tongue Laser Treatment
For a week now, I have had a foul, metallic taste in my mouth, as well as bad breath despite brushing my teeth regularly. Additionally, my mouth and tongue feel hot and burning, and the area under my tongue is sore.
What could possibly be causing such discomfort, and can it be treated? I have a dental cleaning scheduled in a month from now, but is that too long of a wait to have this checked? I appreciate your help. ...Dawn in PA
