Re: Bit the heck out of my tongue but should it look like this???
i agree with the above poster. one thing you can do to help it heal more quickly is warm salt water rinses or swishes a few times a day? for some reason,salt really helps heal mucosal tissue faster. if you are having any pain,you can use either oragel on that area or even something like listerine,it has to have alcohol in it so it will "numb' the area a bit and also keep bacteria at bay too. anything like a sore or cut in our mouths will heal much more quickly than regular tissue for some reason,so it should not take too long. if you would feel more comfortable,you can always see your dentist or doc about this,but i do think it will most likely heal all by itself more quickly than you think it will. if things get worse or don't change within like the next week or so,then i would for certain see someone about it,but i do think it will heal just fine soon.
honestly luv? i have been sitting here actually trying to figure out with my tongue, how in the heck you could have actually bit your tongue like that and i cannot for the life of me get my teeth to go there,you know what i mean? that must have been a real flukey type of bite you had goin there. just do those salt swishes,it does promote healing. keep us posted, **
