Maybe mouthwash as a compromise? It does have anti-bacterial properties...
I use dental dams, though it took me a while to get started with them (I just didn't perform oral on girls/didn't have oral performed on me until I did). In my country, you just can't find them unless you're getting the kind dentists use... unflavoured, thick nasty ones (seriously, it's like licking a balloon). Fortunately, those come in fifty-packs and that way, wind up being cheaper than condoms. And there's always flavoured lube. ^^U
I'll be honest; they're hard to use and keep things sexy at the same time. You need to develop some very specific skills to use them effectively while going down on someone, and there are new rules of bedroom etiquette to learn (the most important one: the one being eaten out is the best suited to hold it in place so you can use your hands to give pleasure to your girl too).
But with practise, you get used to them. It's like condoms; a couple decades ago they were taboo and everybody hated them, but despite whining from some immature jerks, people do use them regularly now. Hopefully dental dams will improve with time to the point they're readily available and much easier and nicer to use.
