Can kissing my partner with bleeding gums spread gum disease?

Let’s admit it. You have shared a spoon with your child or drank from a friend's cup. Maybe you kissed a pet or brushed with a partner's toothbrush. Seems innocent . . . right? But, what if we looked at these innocent actions through a microscope, what do you think we might find? The answer . . . is a lot of bacteria. Studies have shown that a single kiss with your partner can send up to 80 million bacteria. Gross! So, have you ever wondered if you could catch gum disease from someone you know?
