    Could be diet, smoking, drugs, even fizzy drinks that one takes constantly. Would check usual diet.

    I don't smoke....reduced sugar from fizzy drinks...I don't get what you mean by diets and what kind of diets should I avoid

    Generally starchy foods will contribute to plaque build up. Sweet stuff eg chocolates also. As they can't be totally avoided, flossing, regular brushing are your best bet. Rinse or brush after such meals
