Get it filled: When a filling falls out of the tooth that means that the tooth has decayed and anyhting you eat gets trapped in that tooth which you may or may not effectively get out. Food debris that is left behind in the tooth will begin to rot which will result in your bad breath. Bad breath is also indicative of periodontal or gum disease.

Go see your dentist: The filling falling out possibly was due to decay in the tooth. See your dentist to have the tooth repaired and have him or her evaluate if there are any other causes for your bad breath.
