Can an erupted wisdom tooth cause bad breath?

0

According to Colgate, a partially erupted tooth may cause perocoronitis (bad breath), because flaps of gum can catch food particles and trap bacteria. However, this usually goes away once the tooth fully erupts. Proper brushing of the wisdom tooth area helps prevent this from occurring.
