What causes plaque on the teeth?

When you don’t brush and floss your teeth daily, it leads to a build-up of plaque on the teeth. This can increase your risk for a heart attack or stroke. Cholesterol isn’t the only thing that blocks arteries. A study by the American Heart Foundation found that the bacteria in oral plaque can contribute to blocked arteries. Plaque gets into the bloodstream and can become lodged in an artery in the heart. This can lead to a heart attack or stroke.
