Why We Have Morning Breath & How To Stop It

morning breath is bad breath odor

Everyone has bad breath in the morning, and although some have it worse than others, everyone wants it to stop.

No matter whether your morning breath comes in the form of a bad taste, bad odor or even just the sensation of an extremely dehydrated mouth, you want it gone.

Morning breath can be caused by several factors. It could be because of mucus accumulation in back of your throat overnight. Because we don’t cough or swallow while sleeping, it just sits there waiting for you to open up.

People suffering from acid reflux also usually wake up with a very bad oral odor. This is because partially digested food and stomach acids could come up and sit in your throat while you’re asleep.

You can help fight this with one small, simple step: don’t eat before going to bed. Doctors recommend that you have your last bite around 3 hours before you head to bed and retire for night.

All in all, it’s just a matter of timing.
