One day at a time: First see this website for lots of information on bad breath. If you don't have any contributing medical problems, it's a matter of good oral hygiene every day-(brushing, flossing, tongue scraper), and avoiding certain foods. Forever is a long time. Take one day at a time. http://smilesapartcosmeticdentist.com/fresh-breath-control.htm.

Scrape your tongue: Brush, floss, rinse and scrape your tongue regularly. And if you have gum disease, treat it.

Dental and GI: Go to dentist to check for bleeding gum due to food impaction, dental infection, sinus infection and drainage, small open contact between teeth, and gingivitis/periodontittis. Go to the GI doctor to rule out medical problem of the GI tract, or the diabetic ketonic breath problem.
