Should be OK: If the tooth is not loose or painful, i would not be worrying too much. The trauma to the lip caused it to swell but that should subside in a couple of days. If it is not painful, no need to do anything. If it is too sore, motrin/aleve/tylenol may help. If things don't get better or if worsen over next couple of days, consult your doc. Good luck.
