Thank you for the information.

Repeated respiratory tract infection is the cause of your bad breath.

Brush your teeth after you eat. Keep a toothbrush at work to brush after eating.

Floss at least once a day

Brush your tongue. Pay particular attention to the middle third of the tongue, where most of the bacteria tend to collect.

Drink plenty of water. To keep your mouth moist, be sure to consume plenty of water.

Chewing gum (preferably sugarless) or sucking on candy (preferably sugarless) also stimulates saliva, washing away food particles and bacteria.

Use a fairly new toothbrush. Change your toothbrush every three to four months, and choose a soft-bristled toothbrush.

You may use chlorhexidine mouth wash at times for antibacterial action.

You can take a dental opinion if there is any gum problem.

If you need further clarifications, I will be happy to explain you.
