Why is saliva so important in the fight against bad breath?

0

Saliva is the key ingredient in your mouth that helps keep the odor under control because it helps wash away food particles and bacteria, the primary cause of bad breath. When you sleep, however, salivary glands slow down and bacteria can grow inside the mouth. To alleviate “morning mouth,” Durham dentist Dr. Gary Schlotterer recommends that you brush your teeth and eat a morning meal.
