Bacteria that find: Access under a failing/loose filling can have a simply awful smell and taste. The bad breath is caused by the oral bacteria and not simply from a lost filling. The tooth that has lost the restoration needs to be evaluated very soon. Delay is unwise. Other causes of breath malodor can be explained to you by your dentist. Good luck!
