Swelling inside mouth behind bottom lip after an accident

I was in an jet ski accident with my mouth heating some trees. In addition to loosing few teeths, I had one stich in ER behind my bottom lip (inside my mouth). Now it seems that some dead mass/something is stuck inside that stich and there is bump that (behind my bottom lip, inside my mouth) that s not going away. It s been 2 months. What kind of specialist do I need to see for this issue.

You consult surgeon or oro surgeon,they will correct by removing bumps and re suturing the wound.
