Dentist 's  Response
First of all it should be understood that malodor is caused by many reasons like decayed teeth, poor oral hygiene, gastric problems,Sinusitis, liver disorder, diabetis, smoking, alcohol consumption, tobacco chewing. You should consult a dentist to check for any problem in your oral cavity.If the problem is due to calculus and plaque it can be removed by scaling and polishing of your teeth. Flossing of teeth and tongue cleaning using tongue scraper should be done daily.

Dentist, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Dr. Manish Gupta's  Response
Bad breath can be due to a number of causes like :-
Local factors like oral hygiene (Improper brushing technique,food lodgment on the tooth surfaces,smoking, etc) or
Systemic factors like Diabetes, Gastric refluxes resulting from dietary components rich in garlic, onions etc.
The first thing is to visit your Dentist and get the cause of your condition diagnosed. Also get a professional cleaning (scaling/Oral Prophylaxis) done. Maintain good oral hygiene by simple procedures of brushing twice a day, rinsing and flossing after every meal. Start using a mouthwash regularly and drink plenty of water thru the day.
Take care....

Hello Veena pujari. I have the same problem as you and now am 24! i visited many doctors of many specialties as well - otorhinolaryngologist, dentist, stomatologist, pathologist, gastroenterologist - but none of them seemed to know full details about halitosis. I have a very good oral hygiene as you probably have too!! When i was a child i thought that this was due to the fact that my teeth werent in a very good condition, but the last approximately 10 years i take care this area appropriately, but the problem persists.. Anyway, there are many things we could share with each other so I will be very happy if we stay in contact!

Dentist Dr. Jenkins sahayam P's  Response
veena there are many causes for bad breath - poor mouth hygeine, throat infection, tonsilitis, frequent cold, respiratory infection and stomach ulcers, diabetes ..etc, we need to rule out the rest apart from taking good oral hygeine measures, cos all these areas have a common outlet that is mouth , so kindly go for a dental check up as well as a physician's check up
