Is there suspicion or an obvious infection present? The bacteria that resides in the mouth of a person with active periodontal disease can transmit that bacteria (bacteria is communicable). So with that a person could acquire bacteria from that individual which would could result in a bacterial infection or fungal infection by throwing off the homeostasis of the natural bacterial balance.
