Q.

smell

I had a toothache in 2010, the dentist tried to pull it out but she failed and she said I must come back after 2 weeks for the same wisdom tooth to be removed but I never went back because I was not feeling any pain anymore. Every time I floss there is a bad smell around the same tooth and every time I brush my teeth there is a strong smell in the same area. Could it be an abscess?

Possible but most likely due to food entrapment in the area.
