thanks for your query, i have gone through your query. the metallic taste could not be because of the impacted wisdom tooth. it can be because of the drugs like metronidazole. it will be there till you take the medicines. get the tooth removed and complete the antibiotic course. do saline gargling rather than antibiotic mouth wash. i hope my answer will help you. take care.
