Hello, I have a more open question, where I'd like to hear your experience. Every morning when I wake up, I have an unpleasant taste in my mouth and morning breath. It does not matter how hard I brush my teeth in the evening, every time it's the same. It's not GERD, where your stomach juices come up. I suppose it's plaque. Plaque is a bacteria that lives in your mouth and gladly reproduses when saliva in not circulating, such as at night when you lie on your back with your mouth open ;D
I suppose that is the most plausible explanation, because it is not the skin of the mouth peeling off, as some people have, because there are no films of skin preasant, only, as it would look, saliva that is a little dried and gotten less liquid and more like a gell :P Also I get morning breath followed by unpleasant taste every time I nap.
So the thing is that I started questioning wether this is normal, and decided to ask You, good people :)

  • I don't think it's normal for I too suffer from bad breath. I remember when I was younger I never had that problem. I was able to sleep face to face with my husband. Now I make sure I turn the other way. I had a deep cleaning a month ago and there is a difference. The problem is getting better. I suggest seeing a dentist, cause any decay or plaque can cause bad breath. Researching this condition I was able to find out that a change of diet can also help.Hope I was able to help;)
