Tooth crown bad breath

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth crown bad breath

teeth

Richa, don't want to contradict mammo , there is another major problem, which is overlooked, could be due to individuals that have dry mouth, who usualy also have a slow digestion, and when you drink milk or milk products, will have bad breath. You must have a big cavity, that food gets stuck in it , to give you bad breath. Also a crown, that the cement is partially gone, brush and floss cannot get to, also can give you bad breath .
During the month or so when I had a temporary filling in the back tooth and a stump at the crown tooth the odour disappeared. Initially the odour originated from the gap between the crown and the back molar. However, just recently since the new crown fit, a somewhat stronger odour also comes from between the crown and the tooth forward of it (albeit from below the gum line). I’ve had a second opinion, with no problems found. I cannot overemphasize just how awful the odour is.
If I rub my finger in the gum area just above the crown, it smells really bad. I can even smell it in the floss after I have flossed the crown tooth. My dentist did the ususl once-every 6 months cleaning but the smell persists. He took an X-Ray and he ruled out any tooth decay and he says that the gums look fine. He sent me to a gum specialist and she too didnt find anything. At this point both me and my dentist are out of options.
Now, a week later I am experiencing pain under that crown. Could it be that the stump of the existing tooth has gone bad ? It is a root canal tooth as well. I will do what ever it takes to have nice breath & be pain free.
I have my molar (left lower) root canaled few days agao, I have to make restoration of the tooth. I guess I would onlay restoration, hopefully get rid of crown bad smell problem.
I have a crown in my front teeth. Recently I noticed bad breath. After a while I figured out that the source of the abad breath was the gum area right above the crown. If I rub my finger in the gum area just above the crown, it smells really bad. I can even smell it in the floss after I have flossed the crown tooth. And the upper part of my front teeth is hurting sometimes (i meant the gum) and my front teeth bleeds easily. Pls help me about this.
I have a temporary filling and it does not have a crown yet. Even though the tooth does not feel right, I brush and flosss 4-5 times in a day. I even had gum reduction treatment and nothing happened. I don't have mucus coming out of my throat, but whenever I cough or sneeze it smell so bad.Sometimes I get mild sore throat and mild ear pain, but it always go away on it's own. Whenever it is close to my monthly period the smell get worse and people at my job don't even get closer to where I sit.
I have been reading info on the subject and are learning that an inlay strenghens a tooth while a crown weakens a tooth. an inlay also should be preferred whenever conditions allow over a crown. an inlay is also a conservative procedure as it removes the least amount of the tooth material. Another advantage not mentioned in the literature is that it should be easier to detect a decay around an inlay than in a crown. I would appreciate any comments to the statements above.
i am having a problem with a bad breath. i don't know actually if the bad odor is come from my mouth or from inside my nose. every time i exhale, it releases unpleasant odor. but i don't feel anything inside my nose. would you please help me. i could hardly get with my friends because of this problem.
While there may be other things that can cause the bad breath, as you probably know, you want to look at the first obvious cause, which is a decaying tooth. Anything that is decaying stinks. I don't think it would be your temporary filling. You really don't need a tongue scraper, just brush your tongue thoroughly with your toothbrush.
I have to temporarily mask my breath with breath mints because gum does not work. but that last about 5 minutes and the bad breath comes back, but eating a box of Altoids within a few days also has caused more cavities for me. I've licked my wrist to see if my saliva smells but thats not it really. Whenever I floss in between my crowns thats where the smell comes from, it lingers on the floss and its really gross but the other teeth don't smell only the ones with the crowns.
A loose crown can lead to lodgement of bacteria under it and cause bad odour.Other causes of bad breath from mouth are tooth decay, sinus disease or gum diseases or reflux disease. These are only possibilities. Seeing a doctor for accurate diagnosis is important. Do keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Well, after having tonsils\adenoids removed, upper gi, lower colon splenoid or something done, and all kinds of other medical test ran. The culprit turned out to be a crown on the lower left molar tooth. The tooth up under the crown had split in half, and the damn thing became infected or something. When the smell first started, the first place I went was to the dentist (of course they didn't see anything wrong). I ended up on a wild goose chase that cost me thousands of dollars.
I usually do not have bad breath, but in school I still can smell the bad smell. I am 100 percent sure that I’m not imagining the smell, as others have hinted at me by saying “what is that bad smell?” One of my friends even said “You smell” I replied, “What?” He said “Never mind.” I do not think I have a bowel obstruction, because I am not vomiting and my feces are normal. However, I have high blood pressure, a little bit high cholesterol, and I have a lot of gas.
If I get a Q-tip and rub the gum I don't feel any pain when I do this either. I don't have pus, drainage or bad breath either. So anyone got any suggestions? Is my tooth just traumatized from all the stress it was under? Can swollen gums hurt this much? I have an appointment Wednesday for the 2nd part of the root canal (put in posts and perm filling) and I hope it gets better by then.
It is possible that there could be an abscess or retention of debris under the bridge.

ICantLiveLikeThis either! I know exactly what you are talking about! I have had all of the exact same symptoms as you. I too have suffered from bad breath (off & on at first) for several years. Then the allregies started; then the post nasal drips; then the breathe problem became worse. The problem got so bad in fact, the smell started to stink up my entire office! I intially went to the dentist for a cleaning (they didn't find anything wrong).
i could feel the tooth move around when i chewed, and saliva would get underneath the crown and cause bad breath. in addition, the badly fitting crown made my gums bleed and food would get in-between the crown and the teeth surrounding it. the dentist re-cemented the crown back on but it fell off several more times in the next year. finally, he offers to re-make the crown again but once again this crown was ill fitting and fell off again. it needed to be re-cemented again several more times.

Something has caused me to become aware of my breathing, I think it was a visit to the dentist recently in which I was trying to control my anxiety to have a tooth ground down for a crown. Once I became aware of my breathing I think I begin to try to meter it, which was my first mistake. All it took was trying to yawn one time and not being able t,o and it started a small but growing panic.
root canals, I would highly suggest that you have the tooth with the crown on it pulled asap (having a tooth pulled is a lot cheaper than most any other dental procedure you can get). I can almost guarantee you that the root canal & crowned tooth you mentioned above is what is causing your constant jaw infections. The root canal & crown I had on a lower molar was what was causing my constant sinus infections, stomach infections, and allergic reactions to just about every damn thing.
the reactions are very painful... bad breath developed before it due to gingivitis...but the bad breath went away after gingivitis deep cleaning....anyway, I am still unsure as to what may be causing my nasal odor to remain....I had thought the nasal odor would go away when I took away the bad breath but it has not...I still have bleeding from my gums and still 2 cavities that I have yet to fill... I am pretty sure I also do not have tonsil stones...What can be causing my nasal odor?
My gums don't bleed Gums are pink and not red and inflamed as pictures I've seen Gums are receding mild and I see very little yellow on a few teeth One tooth gum has separate but not receded One canine tooth has receded into a V shape where yes I can see bone. But that tooth is stuck like a rock, no movement Where I'm getting confused is in advanced perio your teeth are loose and the pics I've seen at this stage all have worse symptoms than me.

When the smell first started, the first place I went was to the dentist (of course they didn't see anything wrong). I ended up on a wild goose chase that cost me thousands of dollars. Finally after reading another site and listening to the guy on there story, I went back to the dentist and lied that the tooth was bothering me.
girl sorry you feel so bad happy birthday! Take that tooth out im sitting here with an infection from a root canal the dentist did not detect...10 months my face been swollen and numb...and its because of a root canal i had done years ago...and i brush floss my breath dont stink and i have no bleeding...but now i look like a cancer patient..and i been in the hospital more than 30 time for this infection they couldnt find and try to treat in my face.
It it usually a two step process. The first is to get the tooth ready for the crown. You will get a temporary crown that is glued down until the real crown has been made. They will take a fitting for the crown piece to be sent off to be made. I am in that process now. I lost the temp. and since I was not having any pain I have left it alone and will go back next week to have the crown finished. No pain meds for any of it. I hope all goes well.
Dentists have been doing great jobs from the beginning of time. Without them, we might be crying in distress to get rid of "intolerable pain" of tooth decay. Or I should say bad breath too. So, I thank them. In az dentist , they are doing well too. How about you which place offer the best dentist services?
