    Hello ! I had my tooth removed , the one before wisdom tooth ,on the bottom. Bovine bone graft was put in. It’s my third day after surgery. The taste in the mouth is awful and it’s coming from the surgical site. Pain is going away. I’m on 500mg amoxicillin 2*day. Very concern about the taste. It’s salty and bitter at the same time. Could it be an infection?

    1. Clean the area with a q-tip. Clean the top of the membrane with Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.12% rinse you were given.
      Stay Safe!

    Hello! I had number 14 tooth extracted on Friday, today is Monday. I had the extraction, a bone graft and membrane(still attached). I am having minimal pain mostly from talking at work. The site where my tooth was pulled looks clean also. I did however start getting the gross taste in my mouth today. I have tried to read if I should be concerned and am getting conflicting information. I am on 500mg amoxicillin 3x a day. Could antibiotics be causing that taste? I also have rinsed salt water solution every day. Any help or thoughts would be great! Thanks!

    I had #30 root removed and bone graph a week ago. Everything has been going well as normal. My question is I have I soft food In my stitches. I try to eat on the other side but I guess food stills moves over there. It’s probably pasta or rice. Should I be concerned it will cause infection?

  4. Hi Dr!
    I had teeth 13,14 and 15 removed november 20th, 2019 due to infection caused by 3 bad root canals. Thinking back it had been infected about 12-14 years.. if even low grade in beginning. I had cadaver bone grafts put in, and 2 places patched on my sinus due to perforations caused by the infection. My whole sinus was infected.. and had been for who knows how long. It’s been about 6 weeks since my extraction.. and I still feel pressure come and go with that sinus. The surgical site appears to be healing fine.. no tendeness.. or looks of any infection on the outside. The periodontist said it looked good.. however she just peeked at it.. I still feel sinus pressure.. not as much as before extraction but it still feels like a problem.. my sinus is also draining some.. clear fluid.. and I can randomly smell something like a dead animal or something.. not very often.. maybe 5 or 10 times over the past month.. but considering the amount of infection that lingered up there behind those teeth for all that time, I’m worried there may be a small infection that has not gone away completely.. maybe not.. but I dont go back for my next checkup for about 14 weeks. Should I go back sooner for ex ray? Would she be able to see if there is still any infection with the 3D ex ray? Or does it take some time for the body to rid the remnants of infection? Maybe I should visit someone even more specialized to see what’s going on ? What are your thoughts ?

      I will go back sooner and be checked out again. Bone graphs like this heal like a hard-boiled egg. The center may still not have healed while the outside portions of the graft are cooking along just fine.

      You may need another round of antibiotics and possibly some x-rays.

    I had bone graft powder put in for molar extraction. Nothing infected of swollen, says it looks great. But slight sour taste in mouth and it feels like I have a little piece of food in back where site is. I have a syringe and clean it out a couple times a day where the little slit is where tooth was. No bleeding what so ever either. I am just wondering how long this should go on. It does not hurt, just annoying. Only thing I ever feel is some pressure there if I ride bike hard or lift weights.

      Hmm 🤔 if it is still like this after 6-8 weeks you should be checked. You are likely losing bone. Not a fan of the irrigating syringe either

        Thanks. I did go back to oral surgeon but he said it looks like it is healing even a little better than normal. May just be food. He said food gets in and out of that little thing. So you think no syringe, just the post surgery soft brush for that area?

          Hey Scott,

          I’m actually having the same problem currently and came across your comment. If you’re willing to share, I’m curious as to what ended up happening with your bone graft — was it infected? Or did the sour taste end up being nothing of concern?

          Thanks.

    Hi so I had a extraction and bone graft for implant a week ago. It is constant throbbing pain and a horrible smell from the stitches. Is that normal? Why is the pain so unbearable a week later. The doctor didn’t tell me to expect this. I have been taking the antibiotics and using the mouth wash.

      you need to be seen for follow-up. Something sounds wrong. I am guessing that this was a lower molar. There are times that the dentist will do everything right and patient will have tremendous amount of pain but that is the exception rather than the normal.. I hope you get well soon

    I had periodontal surgery 40 years ago. I had extractions, sinus lift, bone grafts and implants on #13,14, 3, 4 (Nov. 2014- June 2016) Sour, unhealthy taste in #13, 14 before implants. Panoramic x-ray and individual x-rays. Crown bridge was removed. Open flap gum surgery March 2018. Told implants are sturdy. Still have bad taste. Hesitate to put screw retained crown bridge back on. What else could be causing the bad taste?

      Something obviously isn’t right. You probably need to have a second opinion. Brush, floss then WaterPik in that order. Brush for 4 minutes!!

    Hello!

    I had my left 2 wisdom teeth taken out on Friday 6/29 and #30 was extracted and a bone graft put in. My pain is pretty much gone at this point (just some discomfort and I can “feel” the areas sometimes but no pain at all.

    However my I don’t personally smell it, but my mom was able to smell bad odor when she got close to me (she was looking at my bone graft spot as I had a question for her) and she said it smelled bad. She said it smelled like if you get dental work done, best way she could describe it.

    Is it normal to have odor like this?

    I visited my OS on Thursday 7/5 he said everything looked good, no signs of infection and took the stitches out of the bone graft area. I did notice there is some redness in the bone graft area near the tooth behind and tooth in front of the bone graft and I feel like the amount of bone graft is less than when I got it put in.

    Sorry mainly about the odor, but thought I’d mention the above also.

    Thanks in advance!

    1. RamseyAminDDS

      The odor is likely coming from your wisdom teeth. Give it about 10 days. I assume your on an antibiotic if they were impacted lower wisdom teeth.

    Dr Amin ,i had an extraction two weeks ago ,and as dr said it ,a bone graft .I was in pain for all this time and still am (now it is more like an ear pain in that side rather than the whole entire head),I was put on antibiotics to prevent infection wright after ,and for a few days now,I have a sour taste in my mouth coming from that tooth.I can still see a big chunk of white stuff(bone I guess),and the area is very tender and still inflamed.I have not been eating for 12 days to keep that area clean(only drinking soup and yogurt).Do you think that I should let my dr know about it ?It is all this normal?

      Of course you need to see your dentist ASAP many days ago! A culture can be done in antibiotics can be switched or added. Some infections need to be debrided and cleaned in order for the antibiotics even work. Watch this video on antibiotics.

      That depends. If you have really long teeth roots than perhaps you may be able to keep your teeth longer. You need a complete dental exam, x-rays and a workup for proper treatment plan and long-term maintenance.

    My 85 year old mom has a tooth loose top front. Dental surgeon gave her antibiotics and three days later bone into gum/jaw then eight weeks later they told her she come back for check up and put post in then tooth. I’ve heard this entire procedure takes many months. Does this sound right?

    I had two teeth removed #14 and 15 almost six months ago due to a bad root canal where the roots were severed, infected and in my sinus, therefore causing a chronic sinus infection. I am getting an implant in #14 but not 15. It seems as though 15 was infected for many years. I am still having sinus issues and have been to 4 different ENT’s who have said I don’t have sinus disease.i am still having pain, redness and pieces of bone coming out of where 15 was extracted and I have a bitter taste that seems to be coming from that area. I had a sinus CT and it said there may be root remnants left in my sinus. I have been back to the oral surgeon 4 times saying it doesn’t feel right. He says nothing is wrong. I still feel like I did when I had the tooth infection. Is it normal after 6 months to feel like that?

      This is not normal. I would suggest you have the skin red by an oral and maxillofacial radiologist rather than just your surgeon or ENT physician. Sometimes in some unique cases I will have a radiologist read it because they can pick up unusual things.

      Perhaps it is another tooth like to number 13?

      The gum should be complete pink and fully healed if not it should be reopened.

    I have to have 4 teeth extracted in my upper jaw and was looking to replace the front #8 with an implant and do a partial for the others # 3, 14, 15. The procedure is going to cost about 10,000. Should I consider fixed dentures instead. I don’t think the other teeth on my upper are in that great of shape. What is the typical cost of fixed dentures?

    I had one front lower tooth extracted last year without any bone grafting done by my dentist. The tooth beside that started getting lose, moved to another dentist only to be told i am going through advanced periodontics. Now got another 3 tooth extracted and bone graft done in that area, wore my temporary for a week until my 1st post-op. Noticed there was already a hole developing w/sutures still around the site where the 1st tooth was extracted last year…Asked the doc at the periodontics office (my doctor wasn’t working that day), said no issues. Couple of days later was passing my, again showed it to the Nurse, she also seems to think its fine. A week later now, sutures gone and hole clearly visible, the walls gone concave, any cold water in that area get a tingy feeling. Is this case of bone graft failure?

    I had my tooth pulled after a failed root canal on 2/26 . It’s the upper second to last on my left. They put in cadaver bone that was like a course wet sand and stitched it up and removed the stitches on 3/4.

    They said it was healing well but still had some more healing to do; the taste in my mouth prior to stitches being removed and now is honestly like a dead animal – is this normal, if so, how long do you think it will last – I am avoiding people because if the smell is anything like the taste I can’t imagine being on the receiving end of my breath.

    Thanks

      I had this as well and its an infection of some sort, usually what they’ll do is give you an antibacterial mouthwash type deal and just swish day and night day and night until it subsides, if not then there might be a bigger problem but I doubt it can’t be fixed… Usually takes about… Maybe two weeks max for it to go away

    Hello Doc,
    I have had my teeth implant around 8 weeks ago and in total I had 7 teeth implants. Also my front teeth have been rubbed/scratched and have put artificial denture. I am having too much extra saliva problem and have to spit at least 40 – 50 times in a day. Is it because of titanium implants or artificial denture. Please reply.

    August 15, 2015 at 2:44 pm Reply
    1. RamseyAminDDS

      The excessive saliva is due to your adaptation to the dentures. It is not uncommon for this to occur with acrylic denture teeth especially if it covers your palate. I’m hoping you’re having a fixed bridge on your dental implants such as individual teeth, Bridges or a full arch restoration like the Prettau dental implant bridge

    Dr Amin, Had a real hard time with my two implants. During the three month wait healing time I experienced a lot of discomfort. Had to be on antibiotics for several weeks. About two weeks before I got the okay to have the implants (teeth) put in I noticed a salty taste in my mouth/lips. I asked my oral surgeon and dentist if this could be a reaction to titanium implants, they both said no! It has now been three weeks since I got my teeth and I am experiencing some minor discomfort in that area (tooth 13 and 14) when I chew. Yesterday I noticed on the side of my gum (outside near cheek) a small puffy area and very tender when I push with my finger. Still have this awful salty taste too. What do you think is going on?? Also I should add I have been on prednisone for over a year due to a medical condition. I know it can slow the healing process.

      Hello Donna,

      It sounds like you has a dental infection regardless of you being on antibiotics.
      I would have a dentist take a culture of the area and sent it to a lab to determine what type of antibiotic is going to be effective to treat this infection. This generally takes a few days to get results back. At that point the antibiotic could be changed to see if that helps. Not all infections are responsive to antibiotics. If the infection is allowed to continue you may lose the dental implants and the associated bone.

      Some people get bone loss without any reason whatsoever. The salty taste is a little bit strange and is not likely related to the actual titanium.

      Prednisone can also be a factor in developing a dental infection and slowing are healing as you had mentioned.

    Hi Dr.Amin,I had and extraction and bonegraph of a rootcanal tooth #30 with crack,chronic infection and boneloss 6 weeks ago(I believe a difficult extraction) and had antibiotics (precaution)right after extraction-One week post op stitches were taken out and I started getting a strange salty taste and a lot of salivaAt about 2 weeks post op the membrane was falling off,and there was a lump under where tooth was(on cheek side)Dr said he didnt see any actice infection but put my on another antibiotic.About 5 weeks post op went back to Dr. because still have bad taste and can see white of bone coming out of socket-Dr. said that it was extra bonegraph that may work its way out and didnt see active infection(He did give me another antibiotic script that I could fill at my discretion)Which I didnt fill-I wasnt sure if I should.Could you please tell me if this is all normal?Thank you Laura

      Hi Laura,

      What you are experiencing is within the range of normal. Most socket bone grafts for dental implants heal fast, but a few are slow like yours. I would definitely take the antibiotics as directed. It will heal but it sound like yours will take much longer than normal. Quit smoking if you are a smoker.

There aren't enough words (and I have a lot of words) to tell you how grateful I am to have found Dr. Ramsey Amin and his wonderful staff. I had an enormous amount of bone loss and I was hopeless after being treated by a different doctor for two years. I had multiple procedures such as gum graft, extractions, and a sinus lift. After all of that, the doctor released me and told me he could not help me any longer. He sent me to a large teaching hospital - who also had no idea how to help me. I was terrified and embarrassed. I had been missing teeth due to those procedures since 2017. That sent me out on a journey of meeting with no less than five different dentist/oral surgeons. Most of them shamed me for the bone loss and wondered what I had done to cause this. In reality, I had done nothing. The bone loss is my body's immune system fighting me, as well as hereditary traits. In fact not only was I having difficulty being able to have implants, I also had so much bone loss that I was also not a candidate for dentures. I researched "what to do when you have bone loss and can't get implants" and I found Dr. Amin's website. Then I researched him, read his reviews, watched every one of his You Tube videos. I called and got an appointment, and kept going to consultations with other providers. I had long since stopped smiling and being social. Missing teeth and the shaming was affecting my life so adversely. When I met with Dr. Amin for my consultation he was ready. He had all of my records and had already reviewed my scans. But more than that, he genuinely wanted to get to know about my life. He was/is authentic, kind and extremely professional with so much success and experience in difficult cases like mine. He worked up a treatment plan & I came back two weeks later to discuss my options...and the journey began. I have had three procedures under IV sedation, no pain, no narcotics needed for aftercare. Dr. Amin is a consumate, experienced oral surgeon who cares about your health & understands your fears. He communicates every step of the way and will provide you with all the information you need to make a decision to improve your health. I am still working toward my end goal, and we had to zig from traditional implants and zag to zygomatic implants instead...which is the reason I chose him in the first place. If there was nothing else that could be done to get me healthy & smiling again, I knew he would have that option to help me. And of course 2020, the year of CV-19. Don't worry, Dr. Amin & his staff follow all health & safety protocols. This review is long, because it is important you know my journey, so you might understand how fortunate I feel to be healing. I'm torn, because this place is like a great restaurant, I want to shout from the rooftops how great it is, how great he is. And at the same time, I want to keep this all to myself. I come 75 miles each way to see him. I know people travel from all over the world for his expertise. Do yourself a favor, have a consultation. You won't regret it. Dr. Amin is amazing and so is his staff.

I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Amin and his professional staff. I have to start off and say that I am absolutely TERRIFIED of the dentist due to several past experiences. I found myself putting this off for YEARS until I was referred over to Dr. Amin. I was petrified on my first visit... but he along with his WONDERFUL staff made me feel so calm and at ease. I had quite a bit of work that needed to be done, but we found the perfect plan that worked out for me, and I couldn't be happier. Words cannot express my gratitude to each and every staff member that made me feel safe and comfortable. Dr. Amin was always so attentive in asking if I was ever in pain... and I never was. These are truly remarkable individuals, and I'm so lucky to have a dentist that I can trust. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE each and every one of you! Thank you,

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Amin and his staff. I originally found them on Yelp about two years ago. I needed an implant, front tooth of all places, and was extremely nervous not only about surgery but about how it would turn out. Let me just say I just adore the staff. Everyone is crazy friendly and the whole office has a very positive vibe. The staff is adorable and always has me smiling by the time I leave. They are all thorough and on-point about what they do, and I truly appreciate it. They are quick to respond to my emails no matter the question, and their appointment reminders are great too. Dr. Amin is very thorough and reassuring, and answered any questions my husband or I had. My regular dentist had questions about the procedure and Dr. Amin's office even reached out to them at my request (my dentist said they never received a call, but Dr. Amin's staff had date, time and notes - love the thoroughness!). After surgery the Dr. called to leave me a message about how it went. Very minimal pain during healing, never any pain during any visits. It took a few tries to get everything just right for the permanent crown (color, etc), but the end result is beyond fantastic! At one point during healing I thought I was experiencing some looseness or wiggling but unfortunately couldn't make it to the office. When I was finally able to make it in the Dr. was so relieved, bless his heart. Luckily it was just a false alarm and everything checked out ok. They're a bit further out from me, but I wanted the best. I sure found it! I wish they were my regular dentist, and I'm looking forward to seeing them again for my check-up which was delayed due to COVID.

I found Dr. Amin a few years back after I hadn't been to a dentist in a decade. Many traumatic dental experiences in childhood have made me so phobic that even getting a cleaning was a knee-knocking, heart-pounding trial. But finally I couldn't put off some things any longer. During my first anesthesia session, Dr. Amin replaced five old metal fillings, and during the second he did three more plus a crown. I was completely comfortable, and never felt a thing. Because they were extra-long sessions, I did sleep for about 12 hours after, but the next day I felt just fine. This past week, my back top tooth cracked in half and fell out of my mouth, and a couple days later the crown on the remainder of the tooth fell out too! Despite being nervous about Covid 19, I had to get it taken care of, so I called and quizzed the staff about precautions, which turned out to be even above and beyond what I would have expected. So yesterday I went for the tooth extraction and plug. After they put on the blood pressure cuff and put in the IV, I gradually got a little tired and closed my eyes. I sat there for about 10 minutes and thought Gee, I wonder if they're going to get started any time soon, and a minute later Dr. Amin said "Wake up, you're all done!" That was a short session, and I didn't have the kind of fatigue I did my first time. I stayed up most of the evening. Today, everything is good! I'm taking my antibiotic and eating soft foods, and there is surprisingly little pain now that the numbness has worn off. The tooth site and my cheek are a little sore, and the corner of my mouth, and I have a very slight headache, but nothing to any great level--I'm not even taking the acetaminophen. I feel good, and wide awake. Thanks to everyone at the office for a comfortable and professional job! I really REALLY appreciate you for giving me painless dental experiences!

What can I say about Dr. Amin he is the best! I'm so grateful for him. He has literally changed my life and given me the confidence to smile more. I had major restorative dental work done and everything went smoothly. Dr. Amin is very compassionate and he really cares about his patients he made me feel comfortable and cared for. He is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. His office is very clean and they take the patients health and safety very serious. His staff is also amazing they made me feel very welcomed and important. I'm so happy I did my research and found Dr. Amin.  Thank you Dr. Amin and team.

Two implants done! Finished all procedures and I couldn't be happier. It's the first time in years I looked forward to going to the dentist. Even during Covid life the staff and Dr. Amin took care of me. There is a possibility I may move to Long Beach but I would still travel to keep Dr. Amin as my dentist.

I could not ask for a more caring, exceptionally knowledgeable dental care provider. He's not just a dentist, but someone who looks after your immediate dental needs and helps you plan and prepare for the future.

I've been going to Dr. Amin since I turned 16 and have been going since. Before going to Dr. Amin's dental office, I had 4 crowns that I was not happy with and dealt with it until finally I asked Dr. Amin and because I  feel comfortable and because I trust him with his work I recently had my crowns fixed and worked on by  Dr. Amin and have never loved my smile the way I do now, I can actually enjoy my pictures, I can enjoy my smile from either angle and that really mattered to me. Thank you so much Dr. Amin still and will be in love with MY smile

I've been coming to Dr. Ramsey for about five years and I have to say, he is by far the best dentist I've had - ever. The staff is professional and kind, the office is exceptionally well maintained, and Dr. Ramsey is careful and extremely knowledgeable about current developments and research in dentistry. I recently had a dental implant which was a long process but well worth it. I required a sinus lift as well as a bone graft. The surgery went off without a hitch, I was comfortable and the healing process was quick and without complication. Highly recommend!!

This is my 1st review of Dr. Amin, and in my over 17 years of being with him, my experiences with Dr. Amin and his staff have always been positive.  I don't recall a bad experience with the several implant procedures i have had.  They run an efficient office.  I like that they are proactive and reach out to their patients to remind us of routine care needed.  Dr. Amin's bedside care is impeccable.  They are also technologically up to date in terms of sending out texts as reminders, ability to incorporate any appointment into your mobile phone.  That is certainly a plus.  Keep up the great care!!!
