You should visit a dentist as soon as possible. they will take an X-ray and tellyou the treatment plan. This decayed tooth definitely requires a root canal treatment or extraction if root canal not possible. Don't delay your treatment as further delay will reult in loss of this tooth .

That must be a tooth with poor prognosis. It would be better you get that tooth extracted. As far as bad breath is concerned go for scaling.
