Hi
Thanks for the post!

Yes, bad taste in the mouth could be due to the metallic plate, over the time reacting with the acid in the mouth. However it also be due to caries, pus in gums, pus where the plate is set, post nasal drip, sinusitis or foreign body. Some drugs too cause a metallic taste in the mouth.
Hope this helps. I think you should discuss this with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
