Chronic Bad Breath – Fight it Naturally?

Response

The gum tissue is not the only place these anaerobes can live. If your have a tongue with excessive fissures or grooves, this could be a problem as well.

At any rate, there may be some probiotics for the mouth that you could look around for.

I suspect, but can’t prove, that xylitol gum, may help to shift the kind of bacteria that are in your mouth.

I’ve been asked that a few times but I don’t sleep with my mouth open. This is really becoming a mystery to me David, everyone that I speak to tells me that now my gum disease has gone that I should be fine in the mornings and when I drink but that is not the case. It’s becoming frustrating to say the least as it is really affecting my life.

Ok, got it.

If this is the case, then you should know that the cause of gum disease and bad breath are very similar. Anaerobic bacteria.

The alcohol dries the mucous membranes of your mouth which create a natural barrier to the growth of the bacteria. When dry, that protection is lost. The bacteria then multiply rapidly, And they produce VSCs (Volatile Sulfur Compounds) This creates the bad smell.

You are correct that keeping your mouth moist should help to cut down on the bacteria growth.

You may also be sleeping with your mouth open / breathing through your mouth – both will also cause your mouth to dry – which could help to explain why you notice it more in the morning.
