Is my cat sick or just old?

I have a cat that's about 10 years old and I'm not sure if I should be concerned. His symptoms:
- He has what seems to me to be unusually foul breath for a cat.
- He seems to have much less fur than I remember
- He is somewhat but not terribly skinny
- His incisors are unusually prominent to the point that my cleaning people call him a vampire cat
To be honest, when I was a kid most of our kids seemed to disappear before they reached old age so I'm not sure if these things are just normal older cat things or something I should be concerned about. Does any of this seem unusual or concerning? He doesn't have any obvious signs of disease and none of this has developed suddenly but over a period of months to years.
Should I be worried?
