On my left side lower left molar cracked. Theres 4 "sections" to the molar. The right back "section" broke. Started out as a crack and had a hole, but I ate something hard and it chipped/broke. My bite doesn't feel off.
There's a horrible smell that's metacilicy.

My tooth is sideways due to a wisdom tooth growing behind it. It feels I have some food stuck. Doesn't hurt or doesn't have pain when drinking tea or cold water. Avoiding eating on that side. When there was a crack and just the hole it was black inside and its still black.

I'm wondering is can I brush/use mouthwash on that tooth with my regular brushing my teeth or will it make it worse? Using a soft toothbrush.

Yes you ought to try and keep it clean. Food trapping will cause the tooth to rot and will not get worse.
