Q.

My caps smell badly!

I have searched the archives and cannot find a similar question, please answer mine. My two front teeth are capped and when I run my tongue along them it tastes disgusting and if I touch them and smell my finger it smells really bad. If I touch the tooth next to it, or any other tooth, it smells fine.There is no swelling or pain or sensitivity or anything like that. It has been this way for a long time but thought nothing of it, I' m just concerned that something is wrong and I cant feel it cause before the caps I had root canal on both teeth. Your response will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

if you had a root canal before an infection could be causing the smell see your dentist
