Hey all,

I recently had a root canal done. But very faintly, mostly in the mornings, I can taste that that bacteria killing liquid (the one which the bleach smell). It's only randomly and not consistent.

Is this normal - even after 2 weeks? Does it mean theres a leak somewhere

Thanks for all your replies.

No, it is not good that you taste anything from that tooth. Most likely the dentist placed a temporary filling and it is leaking. That is not good because the root canal must have a sterile environment or it can get reinfected. Have it looked at ASAP.
