As of now get your teeth cleaned by a nearby dentist and follow up with finding.
Poor oral hygiene, gum or periodontal diseases, dry mouth, smoking, and tobacco use are some contributing factors for bad breath medically known as Halitosis. You should: 1.) Brush twice daily with Colgate Total Action toothpaste, use tongue cleaner, and change brush every 3 months. 2.) Use dental floss regularly. 3.) Keep the mouth moist by regularly drinking water, or keeping non-sugar edible item in mouth to keep the saliva flowing. 4.) Avoid smoking and tobacco. 5.) Use Listerine mouthwash twice daily. 6.) Avoid food causing bad smell. Eg- Garlic, onions. 7.) Visit a dentist for oral cavity evaluation and get scaling polishing done.
