Hiv through vaginal oral?

Recently had protected vaginal sex and unprotected oral sex with a woman of unknown hiv status. I performed oral sex on her vagina for about 5-10 mins. My concern is I have had dental issues that I didnt think about during the time we were having sex. Inflammation of gums and tooth/gum pain. I dont believe i had any open sores and my i dont believe my gums were bleeding at the time we had sex. What type of risk did I have assuming this women does have HIV? Should I be concerned and get tested due to my dental problems and unprotected oral sex on her vagina? Thanks for the advice in advance.

This answers all of your HIV questions, and if you can think of any more just reread about the 3. You had zero risk therefore  testing is irrelevant to your situation because you had zero risk. HIV is a fragile virus, which is instantly inactivated in air and also in saliva which means it is effectively dead so it can't infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. It doesn't matter if you and they were actively bleeding or had cuts at the time either because the HIV is effectively dead.  
Only 3 adult risks are the following:
1. unprotected penetrating vaginal with a penis
2. unprotected penetrating anal sex with a penis
3. sharing needles that you inject with.
The only way to get HIV is if you did one of the 3. The situation you describe is a long way from any of these 3.
Even with blood, lactation, cuts, rashes, burns, etc the air or the saliva does not allow inactivated virus to infect from touching, external rubbing or oral activities. Doctors have calculated the risk from what you describe to be less than that of being hit by a meteor, therefore no one will get HIV from what you did in the next 40 years of your life either. The above HIV science is 40 years old and very well established, so no detail that you can add to your encounter will change it from zero risk.
If you didn't have one of the 3 then you are just worrying about your own hiv theory - which is unrealistic for you to think that can become reality - so you should move on back to your happy life instead.
You can't get hiv when you use a condom for vaginal either.

Went to the dentist today and he did confirm I have an oral gum infection and I had it when I performed oral on this woman of unknown hiv status. Are you saying that even with possible bleeding gums and a confirmed gum infection I still have nothing to be concerned about?
There's nothing you can say that will change your risk assessment.
Yes, reread about unrealistic.
