Endocarditis is an inflammation of the inner layer of the heart, according to

Brushing your teeth after eating can helps remove bad bacteria that could cause to form a killer blood clots which will enter to the bloodstream through bleeding gums and if the clots grow on heart valves, they can cause infective endocarditis.
