NOTE: There are thousands of living organisms in the mouth and some of them produce a fetid smell. A common bad breath producer is anaerobic bacteria which lives in the tiny crevices of the tongue. Experts have estimated that 1000-10000 live on the surface of a tooth in a clean mouth. People who do not clean their mouth, tongue and teeth properly have more of such bacteria. Saliva checks the growth of bacteria but during sleep, saliva production almost ceases and bacteria go on multiplying. Thus many people complain that they have a bad breath in the morning on rising. Many mouthwashes are available in the market. All of them contain alcohol. They help for an hour or two and their excessive use produces more bad smell than it was before their use. The best way to stop bad Odour from the mouth is the immaculate oral hygiene by brushing the teeth properly twice daily along with cleaning of the tongue by a tongue cleaner. Homeopathic remedies can do the rest of the work to stop bad breath. It is caused by stress, throat and sinus diseases, smoking and alcohol drinking.
