  • The bad smell from the back of the mouth can be either because of the decayed tooth or because of the deposit on the back of the teeth. This area is normally can not be properly cleaned as it is difficult to reach that area. So when the tongue is put in that area bad odour is there. There is another poossibility that some decay is there which is causing the food impaction and hence the bad smell. In either case you have to visit the dentist who afer the clinical examination will find out the cause and do the treatment accordingly. for more info on oral hygeine you can visit the following link.....www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-oral-hygiene-63.aspx
