Smelly Breath

my breath is smelly hence I have removed my tounsils and adenoids coz we thought that is where the problem was but not. I floss my teeth daily, use sensodyne toothpaste and mouth rinse and I chew orbit chewing gum. What I have discovered is I have bitter liquid that ozzes from my gums all the time and it gives me smelly breath especially on my tounge. When I floss my teech I constantly get smelly tartar. Please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
