Good oral hygiene with mouth wash and brushing will be a must.  You can start using Tab.  bifilac lozenges  once a day. .should be dissolved in mouth and then swallow. .to be continued for a month.  This alters the mouth bacterial environment ( oral microflora) and keeps it healthy.  See to it that you do not do mouth breathing at night.  Even that leads to bad breath.  Take a side turn and sleep to prevent mouth opening.  These days removable devices are there to prevent mouth breathing ( snoring). Hope this helps.  Kindly follow
