Knowing your partner’s STD status is highly advised these days.

If your partner is infected with gum disease particularly if that individual has bad oral habits that set the stage for tooth decay can lead to transmission.

Provided below are 5 diseases you can get through kissing;

1. Periodontitis:

This is a gum infection that can cause tooth loss. Again it can also cause other serious health complications.

This disease can also be transmitted from a mother or father to a child.

This bacteria are present on the oral soft tissues, teeth, tongue, and saliva and can be easily transmitted through intimate kissing, sharing utensils, or toothbrushes. Let’s be careful.
