Low risk: Hcv is fairly low risk for transmission that way, but the risk is not zero; follow up with your doctor for evaluation.

Possibly: I assume you mean HIV which is a virus.You may not have a noticeable wound but if your gums are inflamed and bleed easily than there is a risk of not only HIV but hpv and hepatitis virus being transmitted
