In brief: Bad breath and meth

Teeth and gums need blood to stay healthy.
Methamphetamines cause the vessels that supply blood to oral tissues to shrink in size. The reduction in blood flow will cause the tissues to break down. Over time the blood flow can not recover and the tissue will become necrotic (dead) and induce bad breath. Also the lack of oral hygiene can contribute to periodontal disease and bad smell.
