But if you suffer from gum disease at the time of bad breath, the problem may be due to the gums retreating from the teeth, which forms deep pockets filled with odor-causing bacteria.
Sometimes the fillings or dental restorations have been damaged and the solution is therefore to replace the dental restorations or remove their damaged fillings, which are a breeding ground for bacteria, and refill them.
