  • The bad breath after having cavities is due to the food accumulation in the area of cavities which may cause bad breath or bad breath can be due to poor oral hygiene. The fermentation of food in the cavities leads to bad smell in the mouth. To avoid bad breath, it’s important that you maintain a good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. You can also use a mouth wash for it.  Make sure that there are no food deposits in the cavities. You can also use a temporary filling material available in the market in the cavities to avoid food deposits in the cavities. These temporary materials can be removed and can later be replaced by the permanent filling materials.  For more info on bad breath, you can refer to the following article…  http://www.identalhub.com/article_how-to-prevent-and-treat-bad-breath-264.aspx
