What's Causing Bad Breath in Children

Generally, most people link up halitosis or bad breath, with grown-ups rather than with children, but bad breath in children is real. People may always think that bad breath is an adult problem.

It always surprise parents when they can smell some foul odor coming from their children’s mouth. And more often than not, this alarm parents because they think that there may be some other reason behind the simple bad breath case and it could be some disease.

While it is right that chronic bad breath in adults can be a threatening hint of a neck, stomach or head cancer. A recent study by doctors reveals that the majority of bad breath in children comes from either the nasal cavity or the mouth itself.

There are a few things in the nasal or oral cavities that can be the source of bad breath in children:

  1. Top of the list is, tooth decay. The child will not go through pain caused by the decay, but will just emit a smelly breath if the decay hasn't affected yet the dental root.
  2. Poor dental hygiene. If the child doesn’t practice a good oral hygiene he is a hundred percent candidate for a bad bacteria infested mouth that trigger the emission of bad breath. It is best to teach the child of the value of good oral hygiene to prevent bad breath from happening.
  3. Bad breath can be a sign of a throat infection called pharyngitis. With this infection, a child typically complains of a sore throat.
  4. Sinusitis. When a child have sinusitis, his breath could be labored so he would eventually do the mouth breathing to ease his discomfort, but then, this could cause bad breath since the mouth breathing can result to dryness of the mouth wherein bad breath causing bacteria will thrive under the given circumstances.
  5. Allergies can cause the merging of mucus in the back of the throat, the postnasal drip, with which halitosis can go along with. In this condition, the child can also experience symptoms such as itchy eyes, runny nose and a dry cough that gets bad at night.
  6. Lastly, a child may accidentally or purposely thrust something right into his nose. Most likely, it will be small items that he has access with like a coin, a bead, a pea or corn kernel. When something is left inside the nose that hadn’t been removed for a while, the thing can start to decay and would lead to infection. This instance could cause a foul smell but it will not come from the mouth but from the nose, where the decaying process is taking place.

If you think that your child has put something inside his nose, it is not a good idea to try to fish it out by yourself since you could have made it go further up the nostril and it will be harder to take it out. The right thing to do is call a health professional to provide help with your child. Hence, if the bad breath will not disappear even after precautionary measures such as proper oral hygiene was carried out, go to the dentist and if things still didn’t get better from there, then it’s time to seek for medical attention.
