    Default Bad breath in 6 year old

    My DS aged 6 has really bad breath. He had grommets in and adenoids and tonsils out 6 months ago and the breath strangely seems to be worse since then. He hasn't been sick, always is a mouth breather, brushes teeth well twice a day, drinks heaps of water, eats healthy, has a mix of baby and adult teeth. Does anyone have any thoughts or insight ? TIA

    Do you clean their tongue as this can be a factor contributing to halitosis

    Thanks for your replies. We clean his tongue probably twice a week so I might try that a bit more. We haven't flossed yet, not sure if he'll tolerate it but we can start trying.

    I'd be considering his gut health after the General anesthetic. It totally depletes the good bacteria. Have a look for a good probiotic for kids that he can take daily. I don't think it's his teeth.

    My 7yo had adenoids and tonsils out in Aug 2015. Her breath has only just got back to normal recently (about 6 months later) her sleep/snoring/aponea/mouth breathing has disappeared. Now just to fix her teeth - which is a result of mouth breathing/palate development....

    Oh so it happened to you guys too? Why do you think it happens post surgery ?

    The wound takes some time to heal and is lik a scab in the throat (but wet). Im not sure why it took so long though...

    Actually, this is incorrect.
