    Smile oral cavity

    According to dentists, chronic bad breath is usually caused by an oral cavity or poor oral hygiene.


    I'm not sure here if an oral cavity refers to an oral canker or tooth cavity. Please throw some light. Thanks.

    Re: oral cavity

    My guess would be a tooth cavity. But I could be wrong.

    Re: oral cavity

    According to my text translation, you're right, but how did you conclude that?
    Thanks, Ronbee.

    Re: oral cavity

    Well, oral refers to the mouth, and the only oral cavities I know about involve the teeth.
