Resumen

NAVARRO, A.; GONZALEZ, A.; GIL, F. J.  y  BASCONES. Transmisión intrafamiliar del Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans. Avances en Periodoncia [online]. 2000, vol.12, n.1, pp.49-56. ISSN 1699-6585.

In scientific literature several lines of evidence exist and link Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans with localized juvenile periodontitis lesions directly. Although evidence of familial transmission exist, it doesn't prove periodontal disease is contagious. Bacteria responsible for periodontal disease seem to be transmissible, but only after a long exposure period. No clear transmission paths were observed in the population yet. Up to now drawing conclusions about it is not possible.

Palabras clave : Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans; transmission; localized juvenile periodontitis.
