Dentist 's  Response
Tongue bacteria produce malodorous compounds and fatty acids, and account for 60 to 70% of all cases of mouth-related bad breath.

Management of bad breath:

1. Floss first then brush your whole mouth including your gums, cheeks, roof of mouth, tongue and take a full 3 minutes brushing your teeth.
2. Eating a healthy breakfast with rough foods helps clean the very back of the tongue.
3. Chewing gum: Since dry-mouth can increase bacterial build-up and cause or worsen bad breath, chewing sugarless gum can help with the production of saliva, and thereby help to reduce bad breath. Chewing may help particularly when the mouth is dry, or when one cannot perform oral hygiene procedures after meals.
4. Gargling right before bedtime with an effective mouthwash.
5. Maintaining proper oral hygiene, including daily tongue cleaning, brushing, flossing, and periodic visits to dentists and hygienists. Flossing is particularly important in removing rotting food debris and bacterial plaque from between the teeth, especially at the gum line.

Welcome to HCM
Your problem of bad odor is mainly because of your gastric problem.
Are you suffering from Gastro Oesophageal Reflux Disorder??
Better you consult your dentist about this problem.
You can take Rabeprazole for temporary relief.
Also get oral prophylaxis done.
Consult your dentist for further problem.

Take Care

dear this seems to be the case of calculus, pocketing in gums, as this create bad smelling, but the important thin is your gastric disorder, if the smell is from the throat side coming out towards oral cavity, then you need to take care of your stomach and control the hyper acidity, do scaling and root planning of your teeth by a periodontist and consult a gastroenterologist for controlling the acid secretion, and with the use of mouth wash and warm saline water gargles and a good tooth paste you will be able to control this problem, good luck,
