Hello everyone, I was hoping someone could help me out...
I was at work today and was taking a box off the shelf... when my arm bumped into the shelf, causing it to shake forward a much higher box, falling down and somehow slamming into my mouth. My front tooth broke through my bottom lip. I bleed for two hours, but the bleeding has subsided and there really isn't any pain. However, I have never done this before, and a strange kind of "under skin" is sticking out from my injury, which is very surprising. Is this the inside of my lip? It's small but uncomfortable, and I'm not sure what to do about it. All I have done is ice it every once in a while, but it feels really, really strange. Is there any other action needed?
I'm only asking because I'm a cook and need to constantly sample the food at my restaurant... if this is going to swell can I stop it in any way?
