Not the fillings: More likely food particles trapped in rough fillings or between teeth. Brush 2-3 times a day w/ soft brush; floss between teeth at least once a day; rinse mouth after every meal; brush tongue to remove trapped food particles. If eat much garlic/onions/etc, eat parlsey or watercress to help freshen breath. Have yearly dental check-ups.
