can i get hiv from kissing?

so yesterday i was eating crusty pizza and it scratched me under my tougue, the scratch was very small and no visible blood came put but i could taste some metallic taste when i run my toungue over the scratch.
so later that night (8hrs after incident) i kissed a girl which i'm not aware of her serostatus, she told me she got her wisdom teeth  extracted three days ago.
now i'm very worried because i thought the scratch i got earlier could act as an entry if the girl has hiv virus
please help!, i'm worried beyond anyones imagination

The only risks for HIV in adults are:
1) Having unprotected anal or vaginal sex, or
2) sharing intravenous needles.

NOTHING else you can think of would put you at risk for HIV.
