Visit your dentist for a cleaning. You most probably have tartar and calculus on your teeth. These are unhealthy deposits which cause bad breath. Go for cleaning or scaling as we call it. Its painless and safe.

Most common reason is deposits underneath gums and over the teeth then comes sinusitis or gastric problem. Visit a periodontist (dentist specialist for this problem). Get thorough scaling done and things should get better.

Getting professional cleaning done atleast once in six months is as important as brushing your teeth twice daily.  Then rule out any other problems like sinusitis and gastric irritation which can also cause bad smell.
Next Steps
Professional scaling by a dentist and then follow it up if there is persistent bad smell.
Health Tips
Onions and garlic are food substances which add to bad breath. Brushing and tongue cleaning atleast twice daily. Keep yourself hyderated by sipping water at regular intervals.

You need to get the oral prophylaxis done.you should get it done after every 6 months.Clean your tongue regularly because it is the very area which harbours the max.bacteria.Use a chlorhexidine mouthwash and brush twice daily.The exact cause of bad smell can only be diagnosed after complete oral examination.

Hello..... If you eat foods with strong odors (such as garlic or onions) Bacteria cause the formation of toxins to form, which irritate the gums. If gum disease continues untreated, it can damage the gums and jawbone.consult otolaryngologist in nearest hospital....
