4 Bad breath

I am aware that toddlers lose their milk teeth at the age of 6 and I was advised by another dentist to leave my baby''s (she 4 years) teeth till then but I cant, she is not complaining of any pain or anything however it is giving off a bad smell and I am afraid to have it removed...she is brushing it 3 times a day and she is using a kiddies mouthwash what should I do..please help any advice??

Thanks

bad breath is often not caused by a dental problem in young children.

If the dentist cannot find a dental cause for the odour- see a paediatrician
