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.

It happens when stitch is taken in emergency some tissues come out from the stitch or there is infection at the site.
it wont go or dissolved by it self,
You consult surgeon or oro surgeon,they will correct by removing bumps and re suturing the wound.
Ok and bye.

Hello, For the last two weeks I ve been feeling discomfort in my mouth. The symptoms I have noticed are: -Slight swelling in my bottom lip inside. It looks a little redder than normal. -Slight swelling of the tongue and papillae. -Slight loss of sensitivity in both tongue and bottom lip inside. -Dry lips (outside). -Dry mouth and thick saliva when sleeping. My tongue sticks to palate and teeth. Sweeling seems to intensify after meals and beverages. I ve been drinking plently of water, so I believe I am no dehydrated. I have also been using Labello to moisture my lips and non-alcohol Oral B mouth rinse. Still the symptonms do not go away. Male, 35, hispanic, BMI 23.5. Regards, Heriberto
