Bad tooth = Bad taste?

    Can a bad tooth be producing a bad taste in my mouth? The dentist does
    not see anything wrong with that tooth, but other options have been
    elimiated (sinus, etc.) Will a root canal possibly take care of this
    bad taste? I also have a dull pain in that area all the time.
    Antibiotics lessen the pain and taste, but they return as soon as I
    finish the dosage.
    Thanks for any advice.

    I bet its acid reflux or something like that.

    New dentist, new x-ray?
