Bad breath is strongly associated with a coating on the tongue.  The coating can be removed with a tooth brush or a tongue scraper.  Toothbrushing for two minutes twice daily and flossing along with tongue brushing will help remove bacteria and the breakdown products which contain sulfer.  Sulfur is what makes breath smell bad.
