Can You Get Gum Disease From Kissing Someone?
YES! You can get gum disease from kissing, or even by sharing a drink or utensil.
It might seem harmless, but here’s why you’re putting yourself at risk:
The mouth contains a mixture of both good and bad bacteria, and those “bad” bacteria include the ones that cause cavities and gum disease. Kissing someone who has gum disease or cavity-causing bacteria
can cause someone else who previously had a low concentration of “bad” bacteria to “catch” dental problems,
due to the increased concentration of “bad” bacteria
especially if that person has poor oral hygiene habits,
which set the stage for tooth decay. Don't delay your dental check up any longer.
Love your teeth & your body.
