Hi, she needs a thorough teeth cleaning procedure by a dentist. Gum disease is the most common cause of foul smell from mouth and is caused by tartar deposition on teeth. Other causes are decayed teeth, advanced gum disease, some systemic diseases, etc. The best remedy is to visit your dentist and get the treatment done. Regards.
Local deposit can not b removed by just brushing get a scaling done maintain by twice brushing use hexadine mouth wash drink plenty of water.

Hi she may have plaque or tarter deposition between gums and teeth. It can onle cleand by scaling. Go for scaling bad smell can be also due to dry mouth, gum disease, tooth abcess, tooth decay and food impaction. Ask her to use alcohol free mouthwash. Brush regularly two times daily. Floss mouth. And rinse properly after each meal. Try at home, mix few drops of peppermint in lukewarm water and rinse.
