Snakes lose teeth all the time but occasionally an injury can occur for one reason or another. With ideal husbandry and keeping the injury clean, the snake will likely heal on it's own. However, without a proper examination, there is no way to be sure more treatment isn't necessary. a good rule of thumb, is that if you don't see significant improvement by the next shed, then seek professional treatment. Of course, if it gets worse, take it in as well.

I wouldn't grab any antibiotics that you can get without a prescription. IMO they are over-used and of serious threat to create resistent strains of pathogens.
