Can it be transmitted through saliva?
It's possible. Hep-b virus can be detected in the patient's saliva. When the saliva goes to another person's mouth, another person swallows it, transmission doesn't occur, since the acid in the stomach will kill the virus and the virus can't go into the blood. If another person has ulcer in the mouth, the virus in the saliva can go into the blood, then transmission can occur.
