Dental exam 1st: There are lots of dental and medical reasons for bad taste and bad breath. See the following site for more information: http://smilesapartcosmeticdentist.Com/fresh-breath-control.Htm the most common cause is poor oral hygiene, cavities, and gum problems. Post nasal drip, acid reflux are common medical causes. Start by ruling out the dental ones first.

Oral hygiene: If proper brushing and flossing along with brushing the tongue doesn't solve the problem, you might have gum disease or other causes.
