Halitosis Problems in Toddlers Uniondale NY

Bad breath (halitosis) in toddlers tends to surprise parents as it is generally thought to occur only in grown-ups. Leftover food particles could cause breath odor in a healthy child. Food particles can be stuck between the teeth, at the gum line, on the tongue, or on the surface of the tonsils. The resulting bacterial build-up will react with saliva and cause bad breath. Here are some causes of it as well as some common solutions to help you deal with your toddlers’ bad breath

Tips for Dealing with Bad Breath in Toddlers

Author: Paul Banas

Bad breath (halitosis) in toddlers tends to surprise parents as it is generally thought to occur only in grown-ups. Leftover food particles could cause breath odor in a healthy child. Food particles can be stuck between the teeth, at the gum line, on the tongue, or on the surface of the tonsils. The resulting bacterial build-up will react with saliva and cause bad breath.



Here are some causes of bad breath in toddlers:


  • Tartar build-up
  • Tooth infections
  • Pacifier use
  • Dehydration
  • Pharyngitis (inflammation of the pharynx)
  • Tonsillitis (inflammation of tonsils)

There is no need for parents to worry of course! Regular dental hygiene can easily take care of the problem.Here are some common solutions to help you deal with your toddlers’ bad breath:


  • Make sure your toddlers are getting adequate fluid intake. This will take care of dehydration, if any exists.
  • Make sure your toddlers are brushing correctly. If not, teach them the correct techniques.
  • Use a timer for brushing time to make sure your toddlers brush for the correct length of time.
  • Talk with your dentist and get your toddlers a routine check up.
  • Make sure the pacifiers that your toddlers may be using are regularly sterilized.

Of course, bad breath in some instances can simply be caused by recently consumed foods or beverages such as garlic or onions or spicy foods like pepperoni.



There are other serious cases, however, where your children’s breath may smell toxic. In these circumstances, immediately check if your toddlers have consumed any chemical or medicine accidentally kept within reach.
