In brief: See your dentist

In the majority of cases, the cause of bad breath, or halitosis, is the product of bacteria in the mouth.
The proper diagnosis is the key to a successful treatment. See your dentist for Halimeter test, diagnosis and bad breath treatment that depends on its cause. Good luck.

In brief: Cavity or tongue

Have you tried brushing your tongue? Some tongues have exaggerated ridges and furrows which harbor odor forming bacteria.
Or you might have a cavity or leaking filling or other dental restoration. These can generate quite an odor! let your dentist check these out.
