Customer Question

I had a tooth pulled about 1 1/2 years ago. That tooth already had had a root canal and cap. When going to the dentist they did an x-ray and said that that area had an infection. My choices where to have everything replaced or have the back tooth removed. No insurance I went for the removal of the molar. Since then I have had a metallic dry chalky taste in my mouth. My GP can not diagnosis it and sent me to an ENT. Had scan of sinus and thought I had a deviated spectrum. Scan came back negative. This is driving me crazy. I actually get a gagging reflect.
Also hade blood work rule out the disease that rules out SJ. Disease.
