Why does halitosis or bad breath occur?
The moment we sleep, our metabolic activity becomes slower, so it is advisable to eat shortly before going to sleep. One of these processes is the production of saliva by the glands responsible for it found in the mouth. Saliva is an effective bactericide thanks to the presence of enzymes and other proteins with defensive activity, which prevents the excessive proliferation of certain decomposing bacteria in the mouth. By decreasing the production of saliva, these bacteria, which develop at an extraordinary speed, proliferate, metabolize and ferment the remains of foods that, inevitably, remain in the most intricate sites of our teeth, where the brush barely acts directly, causing the emanation of unpleasant odors if we do not brush our teeth, it would be even worse!
Something is clear, certain foods such as condiments, as well as alcohol and tobacco can significantly intensify bad breath, especially these last two, which are also harmful to health.
Luckily, the bad breath of the morning is usually easily eliminated with proper brushing and an adequate breakfast, which returns hygiene and functionality to the entire system, producing enough saliva to return to our normal breathing, which should accompany us throughout the entire day, until we leave. Go back to bed and repeat the cycle.
The tongue serves as a great help to eliminate halitosis. When we sleep, with its continuous movement, we clean the inside of our cheeks and the surface of the teeth and molars, distributing, in turn, the saliva throughout the oral area. Therefore, it continuously removes the bacterial layer preventing its accelerated growth. When we sleep, our tongue also rests considerably compared to when we are awake, giving microorganisms the opportunity to settle and proliferate.
