Our expert says:
The sensation of taste is made up of a combination of sensory inputs both from the taste organs in the mouth and the olfactory organs in the nose. It is possible that the implants and/or the anaesthetic and/or any medications that may have been prescribed post-operatively, have affected your sense of taste and/or smell. It is important that you contact the doctor who did the implants as soon as possible to report on this side-effect, so that he/she can firstly explain what is going on and secondly can give you treatment if this should be necessary.
Contact the doctor ASAP
