Possibly: Often times when a tooth is removed the dentist will not suture the gum tissue over the socket. Food can gather in that socket and create a bad smell. Infection can occur, although rarely, which will also cause a bad smell. You need to see your dentist to make sure you do not have infection. Rinse with warm salt water a few times a day until you get there.

Good Question: Most toothpastes have quite low abrasiveness. I would need to know what you are looking for. Are you concerned a toothpaste would roughen fillings, or veneers or crowns? In most situations any mainstream toothpaste would be fine. If you are looking for a more scientific method of evaluation i would have to refer you to a research institute. Best to you.

It depends: Halitosis or bad breath has many different causes. It can be related to oral bacteria in which case good oral hygiene (including flossing and tongue scrapper) is essential. If you have periodontitis (gum and bone loss) the smell is bad and has to be treated professionally. If the cause is digestive you need to see a G.I. To evaluate and treat. Try a product with chlorine dioxide for mouth odor.
