Salty and Metal Taste after a dental implant?

Authors

Is it normal, after having a dental implant, to have a very strong salty & metal taste in your mouth? I had the implant on 1/31/13. The salty/metal taste is stronger every day and the gum tissue directly above the tooth is healing but, is not thick like the rest of my normal gum tissue. It almost seems as if I am missing some of the gum area in that spot. I was on antibiotics before, during and after and I used the oral rinse Chlorhexidine. If this is a normal symptom, how long can I expect it to last? Thank you.
