hello and welcome,

you are suffering from halitosis.this caused by accumulation of plaque and food debris around teeth.

the no.of times you brush your teeth does not matter.always brush your teeth in correct method-ie,in down to up and up to down manner.hold the toothbrush in 45 degree angle .

visit your dentist and get a deep scaling done to remove the hard calcific deposits of plaque called calculus.

also check the salivary secretion.the plaque accumulation will be more in case if the salivary secretion is more mucous in nature.

streptococcus sanguis,s.mitis,s.mutans,and actinomyces viscosus are usually present micro-organisms in plaque.

if there is gingivitis and bleeding gums associated,then take tab.microdox.100mg,once daily for 3 days.

use soft interdental brush and tongue cleaner to clean your teeth.the listerine which is a chlorhexidine gluconate containing mouthwash will help to remove the micro-organisms in the mouth.
take care.

Dentist, Orthodontics Dr. Rachna Dubey's  Response
I have read your problem,I think you are having chronic periodontitis disease(Pyorrhea).In chronic periodontitis disease infection reaches in side the gums pocket, it creates bad smell even though you are using brush three times and using mouth wash also. Go to the PERIODONTIST CLINIC,he or she will guide you better,they will suggest you FLAP surgical procedure under antibiotic ,analgesic,tryptin,chymotrypsin , b complex coverage and antiseptic mouth wash to be used with above medicins.For any Human being twice a day brushing and once a day mouthwash is necessary to maintain the good oral hygiene and to show dentist in every six month interval is necessary for scaling purpose and general check up also. Now a day it can be managed by LASER also.While brushing to know correct direction of brushing is also necessary.
All the best
