Are older people’s teeth more prone to odor and stench?

As the elderly age, the gums begin to recede and the root surfaces of the teeth are exposed, making it easy for bacteria to gather and often causing root surface caries, which will further promote the metabolic decomposition of bacteria and food residues and produce bad odor. So the elderly are more likely to have smelly teeth.
