Oral sex is more risky when gums or teeth are not healthy. Bleeding gums, sores, or loose teeth can create perfect openings for HIV to get into your bloodstream. Other STDs like syphilis, gonorrhea, and herpes can also be spread this way. Therefore, it's best to use a condom when you have oral sex.
