In brief: Add

Add flossing and tongue brushing to the routine and see if that helps.
If her breath still smells bad speak to her pediatrician as bad breath could be associated with the digestive tract as well.

Have the pediatrician evaluate for possible mouth breathing caused by sinus problems or large adenoids and tonsils.

In brief: Check with dentist

If you have your daughter hold a mouth full of air then slowly let it out and smell the air and it is bad.
. It is probably from her mouth. If she has stomach issues also may be from her stomach. Bad breath can also be a sign of a systemic problem.

Plax is one of the most useless mouth rinses

In brief: Can be intestinal!

Bad breath frequently is intestinal, not oral! i would try probiotics to help smooth out small intestinal bacteria.
Chronic constipationcan also do this. If pro-biotics don't help, take her to your doctor! one other thing: a bad tooth can be the culprit as well.!
