Dental and Oral Health (Seniors)
For a year and 7 mos. now, my mother has this bitter awful liquid that leaks from gum. Anything she eats or drinks, she can taste that bitterness. She has been to the dentist, and others to get help and nobody seems to know. She had the last tooth on top right pulled, a root canal and crown on another thinking they were the problem. Wrong! She`s losing weight and has had it! She`s 75 yrs. old. Can you help me?????? Thank you!
I don't know about this one. It may be related to your mother's general health, or periodontal disease. The information provided is to vague. If liquid is coming out of her gums, it can be collected and send it to the pathology lab for testing.
