In brief: Brush your tongue

You may be a mouth breather at night which could cause the odor you are experiencing.
Brushing your tongue can help. Routine cleanings will also be necessary to keep bacteria from building up in the form of plaque. If none of these suggestions make a difference you may want to visit your physician as sometimes stomach problems can create an odor.

In brief: Mouth breathing

You may breath through your mouth while you sleep, which dries out your mouth and throat.
With a dry mouth, certain bacteria can proliferate which causes an odor. Try brushing your tongue as well as your teeth, and when you use mouth rinse, gargle it into the back of your throat as well.
