Hello, after a hockey fight my helmet visor awkwardly cut my gum Bled, TINY piece of gum hanging on front tooth. Leave it? Or see a doc? Will infect?

In brief: When in doubt...

I would see a dentist/oral surgeon as a preventative measure rather than wait and hope everything heals properly.

In brief: Gum Trauma

If the trauma is limited to the gum tissue around the teeth, it will usually heal quickly without treatment.
If the trauma is more invasive see a dentist for treatment. Take care.
