Hello Lybrate user, it seems the yellowish stains are the underlying cause behind the bad smell. The deposits on tooth harbour microorganisms that's leading to bad odour. Your wife needs to visit a dentist and get a scaling and root planing done. Followed by brushing twice a day with proper brushing technique. Rinsing mouth thoroughly after every meals and drinking plenty of water.
