Morning breath is a common problem, and it is usually caused by the bacteria that are in the mouth. The reason why it is not experienced during the day is because the saliva generally flows into the mouth and helps to wash away the bacteria and the compounds that the bacteria produce that cause the malodor. During the night, the saliva takes a rest, and with nothing to remove the bacteria, the malodor appears in the morning.
