My girls are almost 5 and 3 1/2. They brush two or more times a day, don't eat sweets but rarely, drink diluted juice, milk or water. They eat veggies and fruits and such. They eat RIGHT ON TRACK with the FDA.
Their diet has not changed recently, nor have their dental hygene habits... yet in the past year or so they have bth developed HORRIBLE smelling breath. It literally smells like poop to me. I gag when they breathe in my face.
They have had blood tests done at the pedi and nothing is causing it. The dentists have checked them out and found nothing. Like I said their diet has not changed.
I don't know WHAT is causing it. :(
What can I do? I don't want them to have this breath their whole life.
Could be sinuses, lack of flossing (food can rot in your teeth & stay for weeks if not flossed properly, could be a mild food allergic reaction. My DD's breath was very stinky. We started flossing daily & scrubbing her tongue very well & it's so much better. It was hard getting her to floss regularly, i usually have to do it for her. Here is a good article.
