Description: This 3D medical animation shows how dental plaque creates bacteria which can be absorbed into the gums and enter the blood stream. The bacteria invades the endothelium causing inflammation in the vessel. This inflammation can cause the formation or an atherosclerotic plaque which can block the vessel and cause heart tissue to die.
