Hello, First of all let's not judge oral condition/health by our own. Please visit a dentist for full mouth check up. Halitosis (bad breathe) could be due to various reason. Main reason is due to tartar deposits and improper brushing. Proper brushing technique and twice a day brushing is important. Visit your dentist for a check up.

Bad breath or halitosis is complaint that is seen in vast majority of people. Reasons can be localised ,systemic or in some cases even psychological. The real cause can be estimated only by a professional .i would recommend you to visit a dentist nearby to eliminate local reasons such as dental caries (decay, any sub gingival deposits or lesions present .once localised reasons eliminated he/she will refer you to a general physician for further Systemic tests.

Bad smell occurs due to tartar formation, get scaling done from a dentist and start brushing thrice daily after meals.

Bad breathe may be a result of many other causes than gum problems or smoking or drinking habits. It may be due to gastric problems. Or due to sialoliths or salivary gland disease or conditions. Better to consult a dentist and get the tests or diagnostic evaluations. Saliva tests may be fruitful.
