Well,
Have u tried brushing your tongue. Use long strokes as far back as u can,rinse,then repeat.don't brush it like you wud ur teeth ooh, use single strokes.
Avoid sugar drinks they tend to leave your tongue dry and then you'll hv bad breath
And go for dentist appointment to scrape the plaque
Also floss - best way to remoVe food that ur brush can't get to

If this fails then check online there are special treatments to persistent halitosis.

Hi, I am a qualified dental nurse and dental disease is not the only reason that can cause halitosis ( bad breath). Bacteria from our oesophogeal area and stomach may also come up and cause bad breath in your mouth. Bad breath can be caused by diet, dental disease and sometimes even systemic digestive diseases. If u think that ur diet is causing ur bad breathe: u could reduce ur garlic, onion and acid intake (tomatoe, oranges, lemons, mango).Also meat may cause halitosis.. Reduce ur meat intake. Stop sugary drinks and cut down on ur refined carbohydrates. Wake up each morning and drink enough water. It is advisable to have breakfast before brushing ur teeth. But wait for at least 30 min before doing so. The food will cause a ph level in the mouth which will allow bacteria to adhere and stay on ur teeth as a small white film, called 'plaque'. 1.When brushing ur teeth brush according to the ' bass technique'(google this).IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT U DO NOT RINSE UR MOUTH AFTER BRUSHING UR TEETH. This allows the flouride, biological enzymes, triclosan and other ingredients in the tooth paste to work on ur enamel, ur gingiva (gum) and mucosa. 2.Also use a brush to clean ur hard palate(roof of the mouth) and us a tongue scraper ( a lot of bacteria settles on the toungue).3. Then use dental floss. Dental floss is very important, since this cleanses interdental spaces, which traps food ( even in people without gap teeth). Most times this interdental spaces allow more stagnation points, causing an increase in bacteria production and gingivitis... And evetnually cause bad breath. 4.U may use oral mouth wash once or twice a day after meal times, but not more than that. The oral mouth wash contains ingredients (eg: sodium laureth sulfate or sodium lauryl sulfate), which can dry out the mouth. A dry mouth may also cause bad breathe. 5. Drink a lot of water during the day and take vitamins. If all this doesn't work then u may have to go to a general practitioner who can refer u to a specialist who deals with digestive disorders such as acid reflux or other things. Good Luck x !

The following will cure mild bad breath. If you suffer persistent bad breath get help from
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1EWT9WritY Most cases (85–90%), bad breath originates in the mouth, sinus and throat. The intensity of bad breath differs during the day, due to eating certain foods (such as garlic, onions, meat, fish, and cheese), obesity, smoking, and alcohol consumption. Since the mouth is exposed to less oxygen and is inactive during the night, the odour is usually worse upon awakening ("morning breath"wink. Bad breath may be transient, often disappearing following eating, brushing ones teeth, flossing, or rinsing with specialized mouthwash.
Causes. 1, Tongue, A common location is the tongue. Tongue bacteria produce malodorous compounds and fatty acids, and account for 60 to 70% of all cases of mouth-related bad breath. Methods used against bad breath, such as mints, mouth sprays, mouthwash or gum, only temporarily mask the odours created by the bacteria on the tongue, but cannot cure bad breath because they do not remove the source of the bad breath. Cleaning the tongue - Many companies promote tongue scrapers as a bad breath cure however the bacteria on the tongue can’t be removed with a scraper or brush as they live between the taste buds. Use a tongue scrapper to reduce the food source for bacteria but don’t expect it to cure bad breath. The method of stopping bad breath from the tongue involves rebalancing the bacteria load. Once tongue bacteria are in balance bad breath will cease. For this complex procedure you’ll need to consult Oraltech Labs guidelines.
2. Mouth, There are over 600 types of bacteria found in the average mouth. Other parts of the mouth may also contribute to the overall odour, but are not as common as the back of the tongue. These locations are, in order of descending prevalence: inter-dental and sub-gingival niches, faulty dental work, food-impaction areas in between the teeth, abscesses, and unclean dentures. To fix you will need a dentist to examine your teeth and repair any faults found. Or use Oraltech Labs Unusual Causes Of Bad Breath Guide.
3. Gum disease, advanced periodontal disease is a common cause. Waste products from the anaerobic bacteria growing below the gum line. To fix remove the tartar or hard plaque and friable tissue with a soft bristle tooth brush angled on the gum line. This has been shown to improve mouth odour considerably.
4. Nose, in this occurrence, the air exiting the nostrils has a pungent odour that differs from the oral odour. Nasal odour may be due to sinus infections , foreign bodies & commonly Post Nasal Drip. To fix this you will need to flush your sinuses with salt water. It’s very difficult. Use Oraltech Labs guidance to properly clear all sinus cavities.
5. Tonsils small bits of calcified matter in tonsillar crypts called tonsilloliths that smell extremely foul when released and can cause bad breath. To fix use warm to hot salt water mix to break the stones down or use a water pic to dislodge them. This topic is covered in depth in the http://www.oraltechlabs.com Labs Program.
6. Stomach, very uncommon source of bad breath. The esophagus is a closed and collapsed tube, and continuous flow (as opposed to a simple burp) of gas or putrid substances from the stomach indicates a health problem—such as reflux serious enough to be bringing up stomach contents or a fistula between the stomach and the esophagus. To fix use Oraltech Labs Guide to cure bad breath caused by GERD & acid reflux..
Management:
1. Floss first then brush your whole mouth including your gums, cheeks, roof of mouth, tongue and take a full 3 minutes brushing your teeth.
2. Eating a healthy breakfast with rough foods helps clean the very back of the tongue.
3. Chewing gum: Since dry-mouth can increase bacterial build-up and cause or worsen bad breath, chewing sugarless gum can help with the production of saliva, and thereby help to reduce bad breath. Chewing may help particularly when the mouth is dry, or when one cannot perform oral hygiene procedures after meals.
4. Gargling right before bedtime with an effective mouthwash.
5. Maintaining proper oral hygiene, including daily tongue cleaning, brushing, flossing, and periodic visits to dentists and hygienists. Flossing is particularly important in removing rotting food debris and bacterial plaque from between the teeth, especially at the gum line.
