hi anonymous :p

thanks for asking your query



milton is an irrigant used during root canal treatment to irrigate the canals

sometimes it accidently comes in contact with oral mucosa causing the mentioned symptoms

i will suggest you to drink plenty of water as it will flush away bad taste from mouth and do saline gargles

maintain oral hygiene and with tongue cleaner clean your tongue as well

nothing to worry it will soon get normal.

thanks

Hello,

The altered taste sensation is due to the reaction of solution irrigated.

I would suggest you to get frequent warm saline gargle.
Antibiotics and analgesics can be administered.
Usually ,the altered taste sensation relieves by its own.
Maintain good oarl hygiene.
Take complete rest.
Anxiety and stress has to be avoided.

HI,

Thanks for asking the query,

Milton sterilising solution is made up of aqueous solution of sodium hypochlorite and sodium chloride , it has an antiseptic action .
As the solution contains salts it results in discomfort and altered taste sensation of the mouth , sickness .
I would suggest you to consult a GP and take a medical advice .

Maintain a good oral hygiene .
Use saline water gargles 3-4 times a day.

Hope this helps out .

Regards..

hello there ,

Milton is a type of irrigant .It is Sodium hypochlorite used as irrigating solution in diluted form during root canal procedure .

Accidental leakage of hypochlorite solution has lead to symptoms you have mentioned like altered taste sensation and sometimes burning sensation of mouth but nothing to worry about .

i would suggest you to go for symptomatic treatment at home like gargling with lukewarm saline water or antiseptic mouthwash like chlorhexidine or betadine which gives soothing effect.

Apply oral antiseptic and anesthetic ointment like dentogel topically over the affected area if the area hurts.

i hope this helps ,

take care.

Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

Generally few patients experience such symptoms after dental treatment.Do not worry you will be fine.
please do not use any further antiseptic mouthwashes or disinfectant.I would
suggest you to do frequent warm saline gargle.
The altered taste sensation relieves by its own slowly. just do regular brushing and flossing.
observe for a week,if any changes,report to dentist.do not avoid food.take good and nutritious food for early recovery.
relax you will be fine soon.
take care .
thanks

Take complete rest.
