Is kissing someone with gum disease dangerous?

Q: What is the treatment for gum disease?  I recently found out that my friend has gum disease. Is kissing her open mouth dangerous as far as the gum disease?  What is the eventual outcome?

A: Dental studies prove that the bacteria that cause gum disease are contagious and transferable. Your friend should be evaluated and treated as soon as possible. The laser might be a good option.
