Can a man transmit his oral / gum infection to female thru oral sex?

He recently had 3 teeth removed with severe gum infection.  I'm very concern, is there a need for me to see my doctor?  Thank you, Enlightenme

Hi,

 I'm not sure what kind of infection he had, or if/how contagious it was but I would go see my doctor. When one has an infection and  performs oral sex, they run the risk of passing their oral infection to their partner.  I would see my doctor immediately and explain the situation. They'll have a better understanding of any risk, should there be any, and next steps.
