Question: I've been having a weird metal taste in my mouth, off and on. I brush my teeth every day and have no clue what it could be. Could it be caused by my cigarette smoking?
Dr. Hibberd’s answer:
Metallic taste in our mouths is often an effect from certain medications (most often antibiotic medications). It can also be from localized infections, such as gingivitis, gum lesions, dental caries, or a dental abscess.
