Causes of Metallic Taste in the Mouth

You may encounter a metallic taste in your mouth at least once in your life. So what could be the reason for this strange taste?

Dentist Pertev Kökdemir explained for you.

A metallic taste in the mouth is a relatively common oral problem that many people struggle with. Often the true cause is unknown, but often this problem may be due to malnutrition.

While this doesn't cause any major health problems, it can be an indicator of something in your body.

1-Deterioration of dental health: If you neglect brushing and flossing in your daily life, a metallic taste may begin to form in your mouth.

2-Renal Failure: Renal failure or uremic toxicity (severe uric acid) may result in an intense metallic taste.

3-Neurological Diseases: Diseases such as Alzheimer's can misinterpret the signals sent by the taste buds in your mouth to your brain, causing a metallic taste or loss of appetite.

4-Low Blood Sugar and Diabetes: Taste disturbances may result in the perception of metal taste.

5- Food Allergies: People with allergies tend to have temporary attacks of metallic taste.

6-Pregnancy: During pregnancy, serious changes may occur in the senses of smell and especially taste.

7-Sinus Problems: Taste in your mouth may also change in acute or chronic sinus conditions.
