Brief Answer:
Brush and floss...

Detailed Answer:

I understand you are looking for healthy teeth. A dentist is ideally the right person to address dental concern; however since your questions seem very generic, I choose to answer it.

Brushing and flossing are basic personal hygiene which takes care of most dental problems. Most dentist recommend twice daily and brushing of teeth. Use soft bristle tooth brush while brushing.

Beside flossing, it is also advisable to rinse mouth thoroughly after every food to clear stuck debris. They are deposits for future dental plaques.

Chocolates, sweets and ice cream are unhealthy to your teeth, restrict them. Restrict smoking and chewing tobacco (any forms).

Besides this it is advisable to visit your dentist for check and treatment at least once a year.

As far as bad breathe is concerned, the cause can be related to dental caries / abscess, throat and nasal infections, type of food that you eat, smoking and acid reflux. It is essential to identify the exact cause by means of detailed clinical examination and treat it.

Hope this helps. If you have any other specific concerns related to your teeth, you may post them here.

Good luck!!
