Causes of Bad Taste in the Mouth

A bad taste in the mouth happens to everyone occasionally and is usually because of something we ate or drank. However, if a strange taste in the mouth is a persistent problem, there are numerous causes for it.

Common causes include:

– Poor dental hygiene

– Medical prescriptions

– Acid reflux

The problem can usually be resolved quite quickly by brushing teeth and flossing regularly. However, if you are “unable to get rid of the taste” a dentist should be consulted as there may be a more serious underlying problem. A detailed article on the causes of bad tastes in the mouth can be read at
