It is normal to have a bad taste in the mouth occasionally and most time it can be removed by brushing your teeth. If, however, it is persistent it is best to visit a doctor to identify if there is an underlying issue causing the problem.

Your doctor may advise visiting a dentist or suggest the following:

  • If medications or supplements are causing the bad taste, the dosage can be changed.
  • If a medical condition is identified, it can be treated.
  • Home remedies can help relieve the problem.

“In some cases, home remedies can help to resolve a bad taste in the mouth. These should usually be used in conjunction with medical or dental treatment.”
