Mouth rot is not caused by an injury. It looks like a fungus that may appear as light or dark colored on the INSIDE of the animals mouth. Often described as a cheesy looking.

Rostral trauma is common in many species of larger fast moving lizards. This is most often a problem with lizards that don't have enough room and they continually hit their faces on objects in the cage. What size is the cage? As for healing, just try to keep the wound clean it may scar but hopefully you can avoid infection. Severe trauma my need antibiotics to prevent infection. Good luck and let us know how things turn out.
