In brief: Its normal
Having bacteria build up overnight is normal, but if you have very clean teeth, healthy gums, and brush and floss before you go to bed, the overnight growth will be less.
If you are overdue for a professional cleaning or if you are skipping flossing, then morning breath can't be covered up or eliminated.
