I had a tooth filling before putting on some braces, but the tooth keeps hurting four months after the filling, and my breath smells bad as before the decay to the point that my pillows also smells bad now.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Good evening sir. I hope you are well. Thank you for approaching icliniq. I saw your query. I will help you to solve the issue. Bad breaths may be due to dental caries, and fillings can be done with dental braces. So do not worry. Take an orthopantomogram and check if any secondary caries have developed. Thank you, follow up with further details.
Thank you doctor for your reply.
I will see another dentist and follow up with you.

I will suggest the mild pain killers, after knowing your medical history.
Usually, braces itself will have food deposits and cause Halitosis (bad breath). Do not worry. The bad breath will get alright soon. These will give temporary relief. Follow up for further details.
Food deposits.Investigations to be done:
Secondary caries.Treatment plan:
Gargling after meals.
Salt water rinse.
Drink more water.
Have a healthy diet.
Follow up, if you have any doubts.
