Oral sex after jaw implant surgery

Dec 6, 2012

Hi there,

About 3 months after I had had jaw implants surgery, I gave oral sex to a guy of unknown status. I wonder if this placed me at a greater risk, and if I should be more worried even though I had waited 3 months before engaging in any type of sexual acts. My question is whether I should be (reasonably) worried about (possible) exposure after this encounter in which my gums, although largely recovered, may not have been as they normally are.

Thanks very much.

Response from Dr. Wohl

If there are no open wounds inside your mouth, I would not think there would be any increased risk. DW
