In brief: Full mouth detox

Halitosis is caused by bacterial by- products in your mouth, by reducing bacterial counts to almost zero will eliminate halitosis , brushing and flossing and even mouthwash will not do it, as you cannot reach all the places where bacteria hide in your mouth in 2-3 minutes ( when you conduct your morning teeth brushing ritual) .
It is like comparing car wash vs car detailing... We use full detox.

In brief: Multiple Answers

First find the cause and deal with that directly.
Typically, bad breath stems from bacteria between teeth, on the tongue and around the gums. Fortunately, this problem is often easy to fix: good oral hygiene (brushing 2x day, flossing & brushing your tongue), regular visits to your dentist (to prevent gum disease), and ruling out any underlying conditions or other factors.

In brief: Brush and gargle

If this isn't enough get checked for sinus infection.
