Can I get HIV drinking from a restaurant's glass if I had a tooth extraction two hours earlier?

The glass was washed. If an HIV+ person used it before, would the virus be able to survive on the glass?

If the glass went through the restaurant's dishwasher, the temperature would kill any virus. HIV is passed through bodily fluids. The virus doesn't do well outside the body and dies in a relatively short time. Read about this at the CDC site.
