Terrible taste in mouth after crown replaced. Can be due to sinus?

I had a crown that was only two years old break off and it was completely replaced. Ever since I had the new one put back on......I have a terrible taste in my mouth( and I worry about bad breath)...especially when I chew gum on that tooth. The dentist said he couldn't find anything. I go to the dentist evry six months for a check up. Could it be from my sinuses? My sinuses don't seem to hurt though, although once when I ate a jellybean I almost went through the ceiling with pain....just for a fraction of a second.

Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

Bad breath can be because of sinuses, respitory tract infections, tongue coatings, food lodgement. decayed broken tooth, GIT disturbances.
I would suggest you to go for complete physical and dental examination.
Go for complete mouth scaling and polishing.
Clean the tongue with a soft bristle toothbrush, brush twice daily.
Take complete balanced diet, drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated.

Hope you find this as helpful,

Regards...
