In brief: Not because of age
Bad breath is not due to people's age, most bad breath is due accumulation of bacteria in between the teeth, gums and tongue, old people may have some difficulty brushing and flossing properly, thus a high level of bacteria remains in their mouth that ferment food particles and produce foul odor gases.
