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.

General & Family Physician Dr. Ramesh M.Vachharajani's  Response
It seems that you have got heavy tartered teeth with some infection and probably some decay in the teeth.
Doing brush and counting for how many time you are doing brush is not important but it is important how you do brush.
You do brushing ups and down while doing from out side so that your brush hair will go in between the teeth and clean the space bet. teeth.
While doing inside do from downward to upward in lower teeth and upward to downward in upper teeth.
This method will clean your part between the teeth and so tarteres will not formed.
You get dental check up and do the scaling

Halitosis or bad breath has many reasons. One of the common reasons being accumulation of deposits & stains around your teeth. These deposits cause foul breath.
Another common reason is decayed tooth/teeth.
Brushing, Rinsing & Flossing your teeth will help to some extent.
Using an anti-bacterial mouthwash will also help.
It is best to go in for a dental check-up.

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....
