Bad Breath in the Morning? Tips to Avoid it Effectively

Brush up your teeth at night before going to your bed, what you find when you wake up is the bad breath. Don’t believe? Better believe it. Ok let’s not rely on the words and go for a practical attempt.

What you have to do is, when you get up just hold your palm (light side facing you) across your mouth and breathe out, you won’t believe that your breath stinks that time. Early morning is a time when you would have bad breath.

Bad breath always resists you from going and coming in contact with other people and hence it’s always said that ‘better avoid bad breath in the morning’. A question may arise, ‘I always brush my teeth before going to bed then how this happens?’  This has nothing to do with your overnight brushing, what happens is that when you sleep the saliva flows slowly in your mouth and it comes in contact with the bacteria and this combination results in bad breath in the morning.

What can be done?

There is no prescribed way to get rid of the problem but what you can do is, you can have a mint sweet but it will only solve out your problem temporarily.

You can prevent this by:

  • Brush your teeth regularly and after every meal
  • Go for tongue brushing also which will remove the white coat from your tongue which is the birth place for the germs
  •  Visit a dentist after every six months
  • Drink more water to keep your body hydrated and prevent the mouth from getting dry
  • Alcoholic consumption and smoking should be strictly prohibited
  • Avoid consuming milk based product
  • Avoid eating anything, three to four hours before sleep

These are some of the points that if kept in mind can lead to prevent bad breath in the morning.
