Does kissing your spouse in the morning send a shiver up your spine because you suffer from morning breath? If you have bad breath in morning, you’re not alone. Most people have this problem, at least to some extent. It’s one of the most common complaints people have when they wake up in the morning. What causes morning breath and is there anything you can do to prevent it?
The fact that you suffer from morning breath doesn’t necessarily mean you have chronic halitosis and run the risk of offending people throughout the day. Bad breath in the morning is usually caused by the mouth drying out overnight allowing anaerobic bacteria to build up in the mouth. These bacteria can produce very unpleasant smelling chemicals that accumulate on your mouth and tongue giving rise to morning breath.
