Check with dentist: Poor oral hygiene, gum diseases, tonsillitis, and the type of diet may be an issue. Please have your dentist first check your child, then have an ear, nose, throat doctor check the child up too.

See the dentist: A bad odor from a child's mouth can be from a number of things. It could be anything from halitosis due to a coated tongue, to tooth decay, to some other systemic disease. Please have the child examined by a dentist to determine if the problem is orally based or from some other disease. The sooner you have the child checked, the sooner the problem will be solved.
