Yes, it is possible to have a salty flavor and a gooey feeling where the tooth was extracted, but my question is ... "Why are you putting your tongue there and annoying it!" Please don't.

Rinse your mouth out several times a day with warm, salt water. Swoosh it around particularly where your wisdom tooth was extracted. If you are in no pain, and this gooey feeling continues, please see either your GP or go back to the dentist as you could have a little infection going on.

Hope you get better soon.


AnswerYes it is possible, but it is not good or normal! get to your dentist or doctor now! That taste is the taste of bacteria enfecting your gumb and the slimy feeling is the feeling of growing infection and puss. The discolorationof the tongue is where the bacteria is touching your tongue. Some bacteria contains a natural bleach that bleaches out the surrounding tissues.
