Go see your dentist: I think it is imperative to visit the dentist as soon as possible to make sure that no damage to the dentition or gingiva.

See a dentist: You bruised his mouth and like other bruises there can be bleeding and you can see black and blue bruises. This will heal. The concern is the teeth. If they are loose or broken see a dentist ASAP.

Call a dentist: Have the teeth examined and monitored. In the future, think twice when play fighting.. accidents happen.

See your dentist: An examination procedure is essential in order to establish a correct diagnosis of all soft and hard tissue injuries. See your dentist for examination, x-rays and treatment if needed. Take some NSAIDs OTC to control pain and inflammation. Good luck.
