Thanks for asking the query,

Bad breath usually occurs due to poor oral hygiene, plague and calculus deposition, tongue deposists, GIT disturbances, sinusitis, pharyngitis.
I would suggest you to go for complete mouth scaling and polishing in every six months.
Take antiseptic mouthwash rinses twice daily.
Develop a habit of brushing teeth twice daily.
Use interdental cleaners, dental floss.
Gargle after every meal.
Avoid eating of raw ginger, garglic.

Hope this helps out,

Hi ! You should brush your teeth once in the morning and once after dinner before you go to bed. Apart from that go for some anti septic gargles two to three times a day. If these do not work, then you have consult an ENT specialist or a Detist to get exclude any oral pathology. Wishing you good luck.
