This happened to us last week. DD1 fell and bit her tongue, and now has this big hole with a flap over it, in her tongue. I took her to the ped yesterday, and was told that it will heal all by itself. It will be a slow process, though. He told me he expects the tissue to start filling in and healing in about two or three weeks, but that the flap likely won't be totally healed up for a month or even two. He advised me that if we don't start seeing SOME tissue filling in within about three weeks, that we might want to consider having it stitched. He said they mostly don't do anything for tongue lacerations unless the entire tongue is pierced, or unless the laceration causes the tongue to be "forked." Those mostly don't heal on their own.
