Hi Anon;
Im not a doctor but i will give it a shot. First off did the Dentist do any x-rays. One im thinking about would be a panoramic. This goes from one side of your jaw to the other and then it gets views of the upper and lower teeth. This could be a slow brewing infection deep in your gums. Do you have any fillings that are loose or out of a tooth. This can cause a metal taste and have a bad smell. Well i hope maybe i helped some or maybe not at all, you have a good day.

Anon,
What type of medications are you taking? Do you have any other chronic pain conditions? I have RSD/CRPS and when my pain is high, it makes my teeth hurt. All my medications list dry mouth as a side effect. But, I have one medication, Trental, that has a terrible aftertaste and is extremely drying. I have to be very careful to keep my mouth moist because the dryness causes my tongue to get sore and can increase tooth decay.

I hope you find an answer soon.
