From elsewhere:

"Recently after cementing a porcelain to nonprecious crown, my patient been having strange symptoms.
She said ever since the crown was placed she's been having a salty taste in her mouth and
at the end of the day her mouth feels like she had been licking envelops.
There is no inflammation around her gums or excess cement beneath her gums.
She has been to an ENT physician but they found nothing was out of the ordinary.
I'm completely puzzle at why she would be having these symptoms.
I'll appreciate any input. "

Thoughts?

descriptive/subjective statements are difficult to interpret but I would start with the material of choice.....or a psychiatrist.

It is most likely that it is the nickel. I would never, ever use a non-precious metal for anything fixed.

It's the metal. Can she wear any old earin? Relatively high percentage of women are allergic to nickle, and they know that because they have to wear gold post earings, or get an infection in their earlobes. With the increasing popularity of "bling", I suspect that we'll see similar problems with men.
