Floss every day. Use proper brushing technique. Use a tongue cleaner.
First make sure you have been to your dentist recently for a cleaning. Build up on your teeth (that you cannot remove yourself) can cause bad breath. Check your throat to make sure you dont have tonsil stones. Go to the pharmacy and purchase a rinse specifically for bad breath. Not any rinse will do, and some rinses can make your breath worse.
