Odor usually occurs when an area is hard to clean or is not cleaned properly. Growth and buildup of bacteria in the area causes a foul smell. I would recommend a thorough examination to determine the cause of this issue and have it treated before the bacteria destroys the surrounding tissue, bone or the tooth itself. I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
