is saliva a mode of transmission?

Im mac,
im also a chronic carrier of Hepa B.. im thinking if kissing is a way to transmit this virus? Coz i read some articles that saliva is one mode of transmission but other articles says no. im confused with this matter. Is saliva really a mode of transmission? it says that blood, semen and body fluids are the mode of transmission.. but what about the saliva? please help me. thanks..

Saliva is a possible mode of transmission but not very effective.  A lot can depend on your viral load and e-antigen status.  If you are e-antigen positive with high viral load then you are more infectious.
