You just may have another thing to worry about if at every visit to the dentist you worry about dentist uncovering lots of cavities as dentists have revealed that tell a lot about our sex lives by looking inside of our mouths.
It all started when TikTok user Cian McBriend shared a video with the caption saying he just found out dentists know when a person has given oral sex.
In a video posted to his TikTok account, a dentist with the handle @Dentite said this is true and added: “I get this question a lot, and yeah, we know.”
He continued: “Okay, here we go. Palatal petechiae. This is what it’s called.
“If you like, let’s say, sucking on a lollipop. One or two here or there, not a big deal.
“But let’s say you like to suck on multiple, multiple, multiple, multiple lollipops all the time — you got a problem.”
Sharing a screenshot of a red circle on the roof of the mouth, Dr Kapadia said: “As you can see, bruising of the soft palate and irritation, right there.”
“We won’t say anything unless we suspect abuse of some sort,” he added. “So their secret is safe with us.”
Another dentist also posted a response to the viral video, highlighting how they can only tell if you’ve given oral sex recently.
She said: “So a friend of mine sent me this video and was like, ‘Oh my god, Is this true?’ Yes, it is.
“To say that I’d be able to tell if you did it three years ago? No.
“But if you did it recently and you were a little bit aggressive about it … Some individuals might have bruising to the palate.
“If you know what I’m saying. Soooo yes, we can tell!”
