why does my kittens breath smell bad
I absolutely agree with what Mark said. Definitely requires a vet visit. I would think his teeth at such a young age would be more tartar-free than an adult cats, however, you stated that his gums appear to be a little inflamed. This could certainly be an abscess (which would be painful to him, by the way) and can actually cause more (and very serious) other health issues (relating to the internal organs - things you cannot see) if left unchecked.
I would suggest getting him to the vet as soon as possible - for his own comfort, if nothing else, if you can do so at this time. Also, different bad breath odors can be tell-tale of specific diseases (in humans AND animals). For example, a urea smell would indicate kidney issues) I think a sweet smell would be diabetes, etc.
Your vet - after ruling out any dental issues, may want to take some blood to check for deeper issues. Please let us know how he is doing and what is found if and when you take the little guy, ok? I ll keep him in my thoughts and prayers!!!
Your little kitten is born without teeth.
His first set of baby teeth or milk teeth come in when he's about 4 weeks old. He'll have 26 of these teeth, including his incisors, canines and premolars. Your little one's baby teeth will last until he reaches about 3 months old, when he'll start to lose them and cut his new ones. His second set of teeth is permanent and will last the rest of his life.
Altogether, there are 30 adult teeth, including four shiny new molars that he didn't have as a baby. The adult teething process lasts around three months; by the time your little one is between 6 and 7 months old, all of his new teeth will be in, according to the Cornell University School of Veterinary Medicine website.
