Q.

Bad breath

Hi
My son is 10years.Has one filling in his mouth (silver one). He brushes his teeth once a day (I now make it twice a day). I find that soon after he brushes his teeth, his mouth tends to have quite a bad odour, especially at the end of the day.What can I do?

see a dentist for a cleaning if this does not solve the problem, it is likely that the odour is not oral/dental in origin. Sometimes bad breath can be caused by stomach/throat problems
