Dental Cavities Can Cause A Bad Taste In The Mouth

Multiple factors can cause that bad taste, including dental cavities. Tobacco, alcohol, coffee and soda also leave an aftertaste. Side effects of medical treatment, certain dietary supplements and natural hormonal changes might also cause a sour taste.

Key takeaways:

– Antibiotics, antidepressants, anti-inflammatory, cardiac and diabetes medications are medications that can cause a bad taste.

– Home remedies can improve oral hygiene and provide temporary relief from disagreeable tastes.

– Avoid complications: see your doctor or dentist for a diagnosis and to check your teeth for caries.

Drinking water and limiting or avoiding alcohol, caffeine and sodas will help.
