  • If there is bad smell around the new bridge near the gums then that means you have some gum problem which has caused the infection in the gums and hence the bad smell is coming. This infection can be there due to poor oral hygiene or poor adaptation of the new bridge which is causing the food impaction. This food impaction is causing the bad smell. You have to visit the dentist who has fixed the bridge. He will do clinical exam and find out exact cause of smell. Till then try to maintain good oral hygiene and do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day. You can also use some good quality ntimicrobial mouthwash. for more info on bridges you can checkc this article...
