I had my wisdom tooth removed for my right lower jaw side 2 and the 1/2 month ago, my stich removal was 1 and the 1/2 months ago. My wound looks healing but the place where the tooth roots sits still looks red, i not sure if i am exposed to virus like hiv if my gum still red, but no more bleeding. I get paronoid when i am eating or kissing someone, can i have oral sex without worry?
Is my gum situation still a portal of entry for hiv and would all surgery wound recovery after such a long period?
Generally speaking, most surgical wounds in the mouth should have healed within 2 weeks. I suggest you return to the surgeon who did the extraction for a re-evaluation.
It is possible to transmit and receive the HIV virus with oral sex as the virus is also found in saliva. You should always practice "safe" sex including oral sex. However, it is not the purpose of this forum to discuss the specifics of sexual encounters.
If you believe you may have been exposed to the HIV virus then you should immediately sustain from all sexual activity with another partner and get tested.
HIV infections can cause a delay and prolonged healing.
