In brief: Yes
A cavity is decay of the tooth structure.
Any decay of tissue in the human body can and will cause an odor. The good thing is that you can start today. Today can be the first day on the road to good oral hygiene. Call your dentist, make an appointment and follow through with the recommendations. You can reverse, repair or treat almost any dental condition. Start today!
