Hi Keysha .. Thanks for the question given.
Bad breath can cause discomfort to both the sufferer and the people around him. Bad breath in children can be caused by:
Lack of dental and oral hygiene, especially if there is a buildup of food waste between the teeth. There is an infection in the upper respiratory tract, for example: chronic sinusitis, tonsils Indigestion, for example: intestinal disorders, diarrhea, acid reflux disease. Cavities, tartar mouth occurs continuously, the more annoying, there is indigestion in children, so it's a good idea to have your child checked by a pediatric dentist. So that doctors can carry out a direct examination and find out whether the disturbance comes from a problematic tooth or due to other reasons.
Meanwhile, things you can also do are:
Teach children to brush their teeth and tongue regularly, at least after eating and before going to bed Give a soft toothbrush and draw the shape or color so that the child likes to brush their teeth Give water after the child drinks milk or after eating Avoid foods that are too sweet to prevent cavities Hopefully helpful
