    I had a receding gum on my top back tooth. I had a skin graft to cover
    the receding gum and it was great for 8 months. Then I started getting
    a funny taste. The skin graft became soft and mushy in my mouth. If I
    touched it with my finger it felt the same as the other side. But with
    my tongue it is very soft. The taste runs from bitter to sometimes
    sweet. Anyway after 5 months I had the oral surgeon re-do the skin
    graft. I still have the same problem. Then I had the tooth pulled and
    the graft removed. I still have the soft mushy skin and taste in my
    mouth. I take vitamin C and B complex. I've tried several natural
    healing medicines. Has anyone ever come across this? My dentist and
    surgeon are totally baffled. They know it is not in my head but they
    can't tell why the gum is so soft and mushy. Please anyone know of
    someone or yourself that has had this, or what can be done? Thanks.

    If you want to be a comedian go to a different board. People have
    serious problems and don't need idiot clowns like you.

    In all sincerity, and with all due respect, you DO know that you posted
    a dental/periodontal question to a vision-related newsgroup, right?
