A salty taste in your mouth could result from a gum or decay problem, or it could be a byproduct of a mouth rinse or toothpaste. Sinus problems, leaky crowns and fillings, and certain metabolic health issues can also be a factor causing the salty taste to develop. Get an examination from a dentist. You may also need a referral to see a doctor who is an ear, nose, and throat specialist.
