Hello doctor,

My 3 year old daughter's mouth has an odor and I always thoroughly brush her teeth every day. What is causing it and what is the way out?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Brush her teeth twice and clean her tongue and make sure she does not eat excess acidic food before going to bed.

Ask her to make a habit of gargling with normal water after each food she takes.

Avoid acidic foods, deep-fried foods as well as those with high sugar content.
